In the Sóvidék region, the construction of wooden houses is an old tradition: we just applied this and we developed it with modern tehnologies and solutions. We keep in mind three important values in the construction of wooden houses, the environmental awareness, vitality and economy. By the design and building of our wooden houses we take into consideration the needs not only of this generation, but also of the next generation too.
The proper design, construction and use of technology has a very low environmental impact: in a region like Transylvania, rich in forests, the careful use of wood protects the only forever renewable resource known to us. Working with wood means a 50 % less energy consumption than working with cement, and with 80 % less than working with bricks.
The wood absorbs the carbon-dioxide wich is responsible for global warming, and in the use of it. it creates a long-term carbon-dioxide storage, which will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 0.8 tonnes per m3.
By replacing the common construction material with wood, each cubic meter of wood reduces the CO2 emissionsby an average of 0.8 tonnes.
Living in a wooden house means a natural and healthy environment. The wood is the only breathing material, which can regulate the indoor humidity, can avoid the drying of the air and with proper ventilation it reaches an optimal energy saving level. The microclimate assured by the wooden houses keeps the humidity at an optimal level, avoiding different bacteria, viruses and dust.
The wooden house saves you money not only during the construction of it, but also throughout of life: the wooden walls isolate with 15 times better than concrete, 400 times better than steel and with 1770 times better than aluminium. According to some sources a 2.5 centimeters wooden wall isolates the heat better than a 11,4 centimeters wall made of bricks.
Moreover, the wood stores sun energy and humidity, so reducing the costs of heating in the winter and cooling in the summer.
However, the wooden houses are warm during winter and cool during summer, thanks to the proper isolation of it, the personal needs are different and the employees of Korondi Árcsó are always at your service.
