Why Use Breather

Part 'E' of the approved documents (conservation of fuel and power) is fast becoming the governments political tool and pressure to save energy is becoming a main issue in modern building design.

The latest additions to the building regulations has seen the introduction of air testing modern buildings alongside building design changes such as requirements to cover the thermal bridge and avoid non-ventilated voids.

The use of Permavent breather membranes is now an important tool in modern construction.

The energy efficient cold non-vented roof style can only be undertaken using breather membrane technology. By eliminating the drafts that are part of a traditional roof space the heat loss of the home can be reduced by up to 25%.

Almost all of the problems with new homes concern condensation and have come about through bad practise. It is critical that breather membranes are used correctly.

The correct use of Permavent breather membranes will drastically improve the impact of condensation in the new home.
