Many factors and functions make a space: security, comfort, health, aesthetics, sustainability, energy efficiency and much more. But the focus is always on people. Windows are part of what makes spaces become alive and people feel comfortable in them. Living spaces. The TITAN hardware by Siegenia (Germany) is a new comfort element in Paarhammer windows.

Optimum Window Placement

Wednesday, May 15, 2019 Paarhammer

An important aspect in building, renovating or extending are windows and doors. Not only can they define the outside of your home but they are also important to the way you use each room.

Then add large windows to get the best natural light with the biggest amount of solar heat gain in ..

Monday, February 04, 2019 Paarhammer

External hinged doors with a level threshold that stop drafts would be the ideal in many situations.

When the door is closed, 2 double seals with silicone contact in the threshold are automatically attracted to the 2 magnetic strips at the bottom of th ..

Energy Costs versus House Prices

Tuesday, September 18, 2018 Paarhammer

You want to be comfortable in your home, right? To have a fairly even temperature is one of the things which make a house a healthy, comfortable place to live in. If your house is insulated the costs for heating and cooling are low, meanwhile, if your house is not insulated your costs for heating and cooling are high.

Correct Ventilation and Energy Efficiency

Thursday, June 07, 2018 Paarhammer

Well sealed windows and high energy glazing save energy and provide a comfortable living environment – and that’s how the danger of mould growth increases. This seeming contrast is easy to explain. During the normal use of a living space large amounts of steam are released, e.g. through cooking, washing, showering or washing dishes.
