Building Envelope Thermal Moisture Analysis

Protecting Your Investment from Thermal and Moisture Threats

Building Envelope Thermal & Moisture Analysis Services

There are other exterior envelope consultants that perform design review, but Zero/Six is one of the only ones that take it a step further and include analytical modeling in their design review. There is no physical test that can predict the effects of heat and moisture transport in an untested assembly. However, through Building Envelope Thermal & Moisture Analysis, Zero/Six can accurately model each construction by factoring in the bulk density, permeability, thermal conductivity, built-in moisture, specific heat capacity, color, and porosity of all material found in the assembly. Interior climate HVAC systems are calculated per the ASHRAE’s heat balance transfer method and Exterior climates are taken from years of weather data taken from the site’s local airport. The entire process is tested per ASHRAE standard 160.

 

Zero/Six uses WUFI Pro 5.0, the most powerful simulation technology in the market to calculate the detrimental effects heat and moisture flux through an assembly. We can accurately calculate the degradation of an assembly caused by moisture and heat over the course of many years.

In-depth Thermal Analysis

Our thorough thermal analysis identifies potential heat loss and insulation inefficiencies in your building envelope, enabling tailored solutions for enhanced energy efficiency and comfort.

Precise Moisture Analysis

Utilizing advanced moisture detection technology, we pinpoint areas susceptible to moisture intrusion, providing clear insights for remedial actions to protect the structural integrity and indoor environment of your building.
