What is transmission heat loss?

Transmission heat loss is the loss of warm room air via the building components of the house. For example, a lot of heat energy is lost through an uninsulated house wall or old windows. This heat energy may have to be compensated by more radiators or heat sources. This consumes a lot of energy and generates high costs.

The transmission heat loss can be reduced by suitable insulation and renovation measures. Energy and costs can be saved by using naturbo therm wall heating panels, because naturbo drywall panels consist of wood soft fibre panels at their core, which provide additional insulation (see also "How do I have to imagine the effect of radiant heat in a wall heating system" and "Why is a heating load calculation based on convection for a wall heating system usually too high").
