GesConsult, specialist in management and supervision of construction works, indicates three strategies to guarantee comfort and well-being at home.
As the warmer months approach, so do concerns about preparing homes for the seasonal change. At a time when climate change has an increasingly predominant role in the early arrival of temperatures typical of summer, and in a year of financial crisis, manage to maintain well-being without penalizing too much the wallet is, for many, a difficult balance to achieve.
In this sense, GesConsult, specialist in management and supervision of construction works, shared in a communication sent to SUPERCASA Notícias, three strategies to maintain a comfortable temperature, considering built and planned houses:
1. Ensure insulation: a house well insulated from the outside and properly ventilated is more energy efficient. From coated walls and ceilings to windows with efficient frames, there are several ways to guarantee constant temperatures, without major investments;
2. Check the air conditioning systems: it is important not to leave aside the maintenance of ventilation and air conditioning systems, in order to get the best possible performance from the equipment. For those looking for new solutions in this area, it may be beneficial to opt for high performance systems, which save both your wallet and the environment;
3. Choosing the right materials: minimising the absorption of external temperatures is indispensable, both for the comfort and health of the house's inhabitants and for reducing the costs of thermal conditioning. In case of new construction or refurbishment, choosing resistant and durable materials, considering the solar orientation of the house and searching for a balance between glazed and shaded areas are aspects to be taken into account.
