What is a ‘thermal bridge’?

The calculations around Thermal Bridges are rather complicated and intricate, but essentially, thermal bridges are the points at which conventional housing design lose energy. They are often unaccounted weak points in the building fabric resulting in high local discomfort, moisture and mould while providing a highway for energy loss. Passive House design specifically addresses thermal bridges in order to maximise energy efficiency unlike any other standard.
