Thermal insulation

Thermal insulation is the process that aims to reduce or limit the transmission of heat through the surfaces of a structure and is essential for maintaining a comfortable temperature inside buildings and for reducing energy costs.

There are different techniques and materials used to improve the thermal insulation of a structure

Insulating materials – Materials such as glass wool, rock wool, expanded polystyrene (EPS), expanded polyurethane (PUR), rigid or soft foams, cork, among others, are used to reduce heat transmission through walls, floors, roofs and other surfaces.

Reflective barriers – These are made of materials that reflect heat rather than absorb it, such as attic films or metal cladding, thus reducing thermal transmission.

Sealing and sealing – Ensuring that windows, doors and other openings are well sealed can prevent heat loss and cold air from entering the structure.

Use of low-emissivity glass – Installing windows with special glass designed to reduce heat transmission can contribute significantly to the thermal insulation of a building.

Insulating panels for roofs and walls – Installing insulating panels on roofs and external walls can significantly reduce heat loss.

Good thermal insulation can help improve the energy efficiency of buildings, reducing the need for heating or cooling and, consequently, the associated costs. Furthermore, it can improve thermal comfort within living spaces.

It is important to carefully evaluate the specific thermal insulation needs of a building and choose the most suitable materials and techniques to obtain the desired results. An expert in the field of energy efficiency and sustainable construction can offer professional advice to determine the best solutions for a given context.
