Thermal Bridges

What is a thermal bridge?

Having a wall with 2 different materials and a different thermal conductivity leads to thermal bridges. Vapor condensing on the cooler of the materials can lead to mould fungus.

Typical places where this occurs are lintels and joists, where the ceiling abuts the wall.
