Who doesn't know this: In winter you heat your apartment at full speed and yet it remains uncomfortably cold. In addition, heating costs are rising and the bill for them is getting higher and higher. One reason for this can be insufficient thermal insulation of the house. But that can be changed! In this article you will learn why it makes sense to improve the insulation of your house now in summer and which methods are available for retrofitting thermal insulation.
Why should you retrofit your thermal insulation?
Good thermal insulation not only helps to keep the house warm in winter, but also saves on energy costs. The better the house is insulated, the less heat is lost and the lower the heating requirement. This not only protects the wallet, but also the environment. However, good insulation not only keeps the heat within your four walls in winter, but also ensures pleasantly cool temperatures in summer. In addition, thermal insulation also improves sound insulation and contributes to a pleasant indoor climate. Retrofitting thermal insulation therefore brings you many advantages - both financially and for your living environment.
Different types of thermal insulation
There are several options if you want to retrofit the thermal insulation. The most common methods are core insulation, external insulation and internal insulation. Core insulation is a method in which the insulation material is blown into the cavities of the walls. This insulates the house from the inside out. This method is particularly suitable for older houses that have no external insulation.
The external insulation, on the other hand, is, as the name suggests, attached to the facade of the house from the outside. This method is very effective because the house is completely covered from the outside. However, this method is relatively complicated and expensive. Furthermore, this is not possible with all houses, depending on the space outside and the attached facade.
Interior insulation is a method in which the insulation material is attached to the interior walls. Although this reduces the living space somewhat, internal insulation usually ensures an improved feeling of space. Because if you retrofit your thermal insulation, you no longer have cold spots on the walls and can use the remaining space optimally. A particularly popular option for retrofitting thermal insulation with interior insulation is the use of ISOnatura. This is an ecological and sustainable construction method that ensures a healthy living atmosphere.
ISOnatura by GIPSAir
ISOnatura is an innovative insulating construction which, according to a spin-off from the UMTEC Institute for Environmental and Process Engineering at the University of Rapperswil, has the best eco-balance. It not only offers high insulation performance, but also ensures a healthy indoor climate. The construction also prevents the formation of mold. As a partner of the company GIPSAir, we at MVM AG are happy to install the innovative ISOnatura interior insulation in your living space.
