Nowadays, more and more energy is being expended. And in a housing issue, households are the consumers who most contribute to this huge increase in energy expenditure, as well as being the main emitters of greenhouse gasses. Being an important factor to consider, one of the first steps to reduce this spending is to reduce its consumption, and one of the alternatives is thermal insulation.
Still considered an underestimated issue both in Portugal and in Brazil, thermal insulation is one of the future issues to be considered when it comes to energy costs, as our buildings are very poorly isolated these days. Isolating buildings thermally is a crucial issue in terms of comfort, but also in terms of environments.
Hence the need to apply thermal insulation to the walls; Only they, by their properties, can significantly stop unwanted heat flows (inside or outside the building).
In hot climates, for example, thermal insulation is very important in terms of windows, ceilings and roofs. But the insulation of the walls should not be set aside, even in hot climates like Brazil. In any case, there are several issues that involve the isolation of different parts of a building that must be taken into account. We give as an example a roof, which exists in almost all buildings, whether in low or high temperatures.
Speaking of examples of thermal insulation, we give as an example the wood fiber, which is normally developed in the interior as thermal insulation. They are usually placed in walls of masonry, old wood, and plaster and are used in monuments and old wooden structures, suitable for an urban regeneration. It is considered by many as an ecological and natural isolation.
Another example of thermal insulation is cellulose which is a thermal insulation of the typical acoustic as it helps in reducing the emission of greenhouse gasses, and to a product manufactured on the basis of recycled and natural activated newspapers. Its fiber-like, lightweight and flexible design makes it possible to cover the whole surface and infiltrate in small faults, thus eliminating any thermal bridge.
As the last example, we have the insulation through the linen as it is natural, hypoallergenic, sturdy and lightweight. It is suitable for doors, partitions, and for furniture and carpentry. It is quite advisable from the environmental point of view.
Just choose this type of insulation and you will not regret it!
