TightVent newsletter, December 2015, now available!

21-12-2015 | EU

Looking 5 years behind, it is clear that significant progress has been made in several European countries with regard to building airtightness. On the other hand, this concern is still lagging behind in many regions and/or building sectors, although relevant in terms of energy savings and indoor environmental quality. In addition, very few European countries have taken steps to foster airtight ductworks. Therefore, there remains a long route towards the generalisation of durable building and ductwork airtightness for healthy energy efficient buildings, but the good news is that public or private initiatives can build upon successful experience and recent research results. Sharing experience is crucial for this and, as you will see in this newsletter, TightVent plays a major role to fulfil this need.
