The most serious problem of wood as a building element is its relatively high combustibility

Directors of designing companies consider the relatively high combustibility of wood to be the most serious disadvantage of the building use of wood. On the other hand, the possibility of mould attacks causes the least concern. This conclusion implies from the analysis which was prepared by the analytical company “CEEC Research” for the International Building Trade Fair FOR ARCH.

More than 6 months prior to its opening, the FOR THERM trade fair witnesses an unprecedented interest on the part of exhibitors

The HVAC sector is on the rise in the Czech Republic as the government continues to financially support installations of new, more ecological heat sources through a system of subsidies and allocation of EU funding resources. This is why both businesses and end clients are willing to invest in new heating and AC systems. And this is why now, half a year before the event takes place, the FOR THERM trade fair witnesses an unprecedented interest of companies seeking to exhibit at the trade fair.

Water heating costs hundreds of EUR. Learn how to save money at the FOR THERM fair

Czech people are thrifty when it comes to heating. But as far as water heating is concerned, they are less economical, even though heating of water comprises a large portion of a household's yearly energy expenses. The average four-member family uses 73 cubic meters of water each year (i.e. 50 liters of water per person each day). Heating of such an amount of water costs hundreds of EUR, depending on the heating source and on the habits of the family. It is important to take into consideration all the financial parameters and consequences of the individual solutions when you are choosing your water heating system. New technologies will be presented by both Czech and foreign manufacturers at the FOR THERM trade fair, which will take place on 15-19 September, 2015, in the PVA EXPO PRAGUE exhibition center in Letnany, Prague, Czech Republic. Professionals in the fields of heating, AC, chimney systems and alternative energy sources will take part in the concurrent conference.   (12.2.2015)   read more >>
