Energy savings: A building envelope represents 40% of a buildings energy performance, so it stands to reason that the identifying and strengthening vulnerabilities early will reduce energy loss and improve efficiency.
Its no news that your building performs on a 24/7/365 basis, and for decades at a time, while being constantly exposed to the elements. It’s a fact that Roofs & Walls fail prematurely in an unlimited number of ways due to harsh weather issues, incorrect materials, improper design, poor installation and the big one “Lack of Maintenance”.
The saving grace is the fact that the building will present itself with visible and hidden clues. Unfortunately for many, these clues are often ignored or missed all together until the extent of the damage is expensive to fix.
Generally speaking, improving the building envelope can reduce the energy loss by 20% to 30%. When the building skin is more efficient, all the related heating and cooling systems become more efficient as well. A problem in the envelope can be addressed early, rather than later becoming a costly emergency.
