The secret to an energy efficient stone facade

Due to its large surface area, the facade - of all elements enveloping a building – is most prone to heat loss. In buildings without thermal insulation, an ideal level of comfort in both winter and summer usually requires winding the thermostat on high. Not only does this result in high energy bills, but also in negative environmental effects. Now, where is the secret to an energy efficient facade? And especially to a facade, cladded with stone or other aesthetic elements? You will find the answer in our Quick Guide.
