The current demands on building insulation are continuously increasing. It is understood that the lower the heat transfer coefficient of a particular part of a construction is, the greater the importance of systemic thermal bridges. This article compares the individual systems of insulation of pitched roofs in terms of the heat transfer coefficient. The focus is on the size of the point thermal bridges in rafter thermal insulation systems and determines their impact on increasing the overall heat transfer coefficient. However, it should be noted that point thermal bridges are individually very small and combined only contribute to 2% of the overall heat transfer coefficient of parts of a structure.
