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 >>

Outer window blinds reduce energy expenses by up to 10%

Calculation of operation costs is crucial in every construction or reconstruction project. Coatings are insulated, apertures are filled and more efficient sources of heating are installed. Another way to save expenses is to install quality outer blinds – according to the study of the European Solar-Shading Organization, outer shading equipment can save up to 10 per cent of energy costs. Light and heat in a room can be regulated using blinds, which leads to reduction of heating costs in winter and to reduction of air-conditioning expenses in summer.   (18.12.2014)   read more >>

Wooden buildings are popular all around the world. Czech buyers are hesitant, though they can be granted up to 550.000 CZK

Though wood is used as building material more and more and the demand of the public for this type of buildings is increasing every year, wooden buildings still comprise a very little portion of the Czech construction market compared to the international standard. It is lack of knowledge that can be blamed for only little employment of wood for both detached houses and apartment buildings. People have distorted ideas about the lifespan of wooden buildings, which, if the wood is treated correctly, is not threatened by fire, pests, gnawers and fungi. Unarguably, wood´s big advantage is that it is a natural material that creates a comfortable climate in the interior of the building and it has a positive effect on the human psyche without being a burden to the environment. The aim of FOR WOOD, a trade fair for wooden buildings and utilisation of wood, is to challenge these delusions.   (15.12.2014)   read more >>

Project designers and builders are unprecedentedly busy – dozens of thousands of people seek inspiration at FOR ARCH

Civil engineering is growing and the number of projects will increase even in years to come, according to directors of building companies. The capacities of project and construction companies are full to an extent which is unprecedented in history (87% and 90% respectively), and the prices of their work will most likely go up. We therefore expect that this year‘s FOR ARCH will see yet another record in the number of attendants – higher prices will make people resort to self-help and looking for inspiration at FOR ARCH. Most of the visitors of FOR ARCH are residents of Prague and Central Bohemia. They account for 66 per cent of attendees. For manufacturers and suppliers from the construction sector, the trade fair is a great opportunity to present their products to both professionals and the general public. More and more people are interested in the GRAND PRIX price – a trophy for the best exhibition at the fair. In 2014, judges were choosing from forty-six exhibitions and products the one that contributes the most to the given sector.   (3.12.2014)   read more >>
