Abstract

The renovation of buildings in middle and northern Europe should be coupled with an energetic improvement of the envelope parts. Often the preservation of the typical facades does not allow the use of an outside insulation. The application of an interior insulation, however, increases the risk of interstitial condensation. In a 200-year-old frame work house in East Saxony, Germany (fig.l) eight different inside insulations were tested. The ground floor of the building consists of a wooden beam wall, the first floor and the gable are a classical framework structure with a straw loam filling. The heat-transmissivity coefficient of the old frame work wall is U = 1.8W/nfK. In the ground floor eight and in the first floor three different indoor insulation structures
