Building criteria


Biohabitat houses are warm during winter and cool in summer thanks to the mass of the walls that acts as a natural climate control system and determines the thermal well-being of the house.

Temperature of the internal surface of the walls varies rapidly with the environmental temperature, thus ensuring optimal thermal comfort, while the heat loss through the walls stays minimal, thanks to the low thermal transmittance (U) of the walls.

For example if we turn off the heating when the internal temperature of the house  is 22°C and the external temperature in -10°C, the internal temperature will decreases to 0°C in 227 hours, while a masonry structure, with the same U value, will cool more rapidly (73 hours).

Biohabitat houses guarantee thermal well-being while allowing an important reduction of the heating cost.
