ITE AND REHABILITATION COMMUNITY OWNERSTECHNICAL BUILDING CODE
The average life of a building can exceed 50 years and requires that, throughout its existence a number of rehabilitation that allow the maintenance of housing in an appropriate living and health status are made. Current legislation on construction and rehabilitation is collected in the new Technical Building Code (CTE), which establishes five sections: Structural Safety, Safety in case of fire, safety in use and accessibility, health, protection from noise, and ergetico savings.
At least three of these chapters: Health, Protection against noise and TECHNICAL BUILDING CODE savings, the need to give the building a layer of suitable insulating material and forces, so inevitably, to the Community of Owners who need to perform rehabilitation is established the building (more than 25 of the total of the enclosure) to consider the rules and procedures capable of meeting the basic requirements of sound insulation, health and thermal insulation.
This framework of mandatory thermal rehabilitation of buildings are several criteria to consider when undertaking the thermal insulation system insulation, type of material used and its quality, thickness of the insulating layer and they must accommodate the regulatory provisions in the Technical Code so TECHNICAL BUILDING CODE thermal transmittance levels established for each enclosure are respected.
The goal is always the same: get energy-efficient buildings that allow the greatest possible energy savings. The community of neighbors to be investing in the rehabilitation of their building, they should carefully consider the advantages and disadvantages not only taking into account the initial cost of thermal rehabilitation but also long-term benefits (energy savings, maintenance costs).
