Importance of having proper isolatie for a more energy efficient home
Posted by Brian Miller on July 22nd, 2017
Isolatie acts as a barrier to heat loss and also heat gain. You need them in roofs, ceilings, walls and on floors. If you are planning badkamer renovatie you can put insulated layers on the floors and walls that will make your home energy efficient. Your home will be cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
Proper insulation can save up to 40 per cent in your energy bills. It will reduce condensation in your home and offers health benefits by reducing mould and damp from the bathroom and other areas of the home. You get a comfortable interior and produce less greenhouse gas. Some insulation also makes your home noise proof.
Insulations can be of two types: bulk insulation and reflective insulation. The first type is used to act as a barrier to heat flow between your home and the outside. So, your home remains cool in summer and warm in winter. This type of insulation is mostly found in cooler climatic conditions. Materials like polyester, recycled paper, glass wool or natural wool are generally used for this type of insulation. In the second type, your home is kept cool by deflecting radiant heat and normally used in hot and sunny places.
The best time to start the job of insulation is when you are renovating your building. For badkamer renovatie the floors and walls are to be demolished and the layer of isolatie has to be placed. Ask your builder on the best plan to start the job, the material to be used and the time they will take to finish their job. Also, talk to them regarding the cost so that you can allocate the budget for it.
These days, retrofitting of insulation is also possible. You should talk to your building contractor to know if it is possible to fit such insulation in less accessible areas of your home like the area between the structure, the roof and on existing walls.
Insulation of ceiling is quite important because heat transfer mainly occurs through the roof and the ceiling. If the roof of your home is not properly insulated you pay nearly 45 per cent more on energy bills. Insulating the walls also saves almost 20 per cent on energy spent. Your contractor will be able to suggest the correct product to be used for insulating your property. This depends on the type of construction and your climatic conditions.
Floor insulation again saves up to 5 per cent of your energy costs and this is especially true for colder countries. Wooden floors are great to keep your floors naturally warm. Additionally, you can carpet it to have better insulation. Water pipes inside the walls of your bathroom and kitchen can be insulated during badkamer renovatie. If you have hot water storage system you can stop heat loos with effective isolatie. You not only save on energy bills but get a more comfortable interior that remains naturally cool and hot during summers and winters, respectively. A good, reputed builder will have the best solution for your home at a reasonable cost.
For deriving maximum benefit of badkamer renovatie a good isolatie is extremely important.
