In Physics, HTB is the heat loss due to linear thermal bridging when calculating the energy performance of buildings. It appears in both United Kingdom and Irish methodolgies.
Additional recommended knowledge
Calculation of HTB
The calculation of the heat loss due to linear thermal bridging is relatively simple, given by the formula below:
- y = 0.08 if Accredited Construction details used; y = 0.15 otherwise
- ΣAexp is the sum of all the exposed areas of the building envelope
