Thermal Insulation, The Best Way To Improve Your Home
Heat losses through the floor make up 10% of the total heat losses of the home. 60% can reduce Heat-loss through the floor by placing thermal insulation. If the temperature difference between the heated and the moderately heated space is low, i.e. less than 4-5 ° C, it is almost impossible to set the thermal insulation. Only significantly cooler rooms are insulated.
Thermal insulation of the facade wall
If you want to reduce your heating costs by up to 75% of your energy costs, you need to set or increase the thickness of the thermal insulation as well as replace the windows. It is particularly true of family houses without façades and those residential buildings that are built without thermal insulation. Thermo isolation not only reduces losses during the winter period but also allows the house to fail during the flight.
When renovating a house, one must first isolate the house first. In this case, the boiler and radiators will have a lower capacity, which will reduce the initial heating investment. When adapting the façade, it is imperative to incorporate thermal insulation. Additional costs for thermal insulation represent 20-40% of the total adaptation cost of the façade. By placing the thermal insulation on the outside of the façade, the problem of steam condensation (from scratching, showering, drying of clothing) occurs due to the low wall temperature and thus the formation of the bucket. It also increases heat comfort in space due to increased wall temperature. Thermal insulation protects the building from harmful external influences and their consequences (moisture, freezing, overheating), thus extending its lifespan.
Thermal insulation of the roof
Heat losses through the roof can be up to 30%. Depending on whether the attic is used for housing or not, it is necessary to isolate the roof over a neglected attic. The roof is to be insulated with 20 cm of thermal insulation. Depending on the structure of the house, its condition, the investment returns for 3-5 years. Thermal insulation of the roof ensures pleasant microclimate conditions of the room, thus significantly reducing the consumption of energy for heating and cooling. It is placed between and below the beam.
The filling layer is very important because badly ventilated roofs can be damaged in the winter due to condensation of water vapor and freezing. It is also desirable to have an additional waterproofing, awning or a rain dam.
