Bioclimatic House

What is a Bioclimatic House?

A bioclimatic house, ecological or passive is a type of housing designed, both structurally and in construction processes, to take advantage of climatic conditions as efficiently as possible that occur in the location of said structure, with the aim of making the most of the sun, The rain, the winds and the vegetation of the area.

Thus, in a bioclimatic house energy consumption is reduced, This leads to a reduction in the environmental impact.

Through this system great savings can be achieved and even be totally sustainable, although the initial cost of construction is higher than that of a construction to use.

What's more, with this type of construction you get better thermal comfort, thus allowing a comfortable room temperature throughout the year. The levels of carbon dioxide inside are also more controlled and all this is achieved through the use of non-toxic materials.

Bioclimatic House Construction Process

The Process to rehabilitate this traditional house and that complies with the characteristics of a bioclimatic house a series of measures have been implemented.

The first has been based on keep the original stone walls along with the thickness of said wall and the adobe (mud brick and sun dried straw), these help create a consistent and comfortable indoor temperature. These two natural materials are good thermal insulators and acoustic insulators., which allows it to stay cool in times of heat, and in cold seasons the heat is kept inside the house.

The second measure that has been applied, is that during the summer season, in the north part of the house, where the backyard is located, a place where the air or winds is captured has been implemented, These pass through some conduits that are in the floor and walls of the house (below the ceramic floor) to get out through the vents distributed throughout the entire ground floor of the house, thus good cooling and constant air renewal is obtained.

Winter in a Bioclimatic House

In winter the own heat of solar radiation obtained thanks to the south orientation of the house is used, that heats the air through the large window at the main entrance.

As hot air weighs less, it is less dense than cold air and when opening the upper vents (formed by the casement glass cube windows) this hot air circulates through them entering the different rooms, as this hot air loses heat force.

This air gets progressively cooler, it descends towards the lower layers of the room, it comes out through the folding glass vents at the bottom, that overlook the main entrance of the house, which in turn reheats the air and starts the cycle again.

With this system there is continually a hot flow from the house.
