How to improve the isolation of your home.

Are you cold at home? Protect your but one, renew the structures, get a better match to the orientation, Know which
materials can offer better performances, reinforce the insulation and waterproof the most exposed areas. We give you all the
keys to insulate a house is fundamental to guarantee the confo rt and with some work not overly expensive and some simple
tips the difference may be noticeable. Take note!

Benefits of good insulation

It reduces heat loss that the house has. And as a result, it reduces the consumption of gas or electricity (depending on the
heating system that our house has), and the resulting billing.

It avoids the hot air intake from the outside in summer. By insulating cold walls, you also get an advantage in summer. A
good insulation will be one that not only manages to avoid the escape of hot air in winter, but also maintains a cool
temperature inside the house in summer (reducing the need for use of air conditioning). How to get both benefits? Choose
reinforced thermal insulation glass for your windows, such as those that make Climalit available. They will allow you to
leave the cold outside the house in the winter, and in the summer, keep the temperature inside without the heat.

Greater sound insulation. By insulating cold walls, you can also use materials that allow us to soundproof. In this way, we
will reach a quieter, peaceful and pleasant home to rest.

Wall insulation
Cracks and gaps
Inner insulation is an essential element of energy efficiency in the home . Investing in the privacy of your home is often
the most profitable improvement you can make.

The cracks and the cunes in the walls are equivalent to having an open window of 1.5 x 1 meters permanently. This type of
damage is responsible for the loss of 15% to 25% of the heat. Therefore, sealing cracks and gaps in the house that can enter
the cold air will save you a lot of money. And best of all, the materials you will need for this are very economical.

Good insulators

The thermal inertia is the property that the material with the drill that is to say, with the thickness and of NSITE-po ur
accumulate heat, reserving the interior for emitting to the environment after a few hours. In this way, the house is self-
regulating, reaching a stable temperature throughout the year and, as a result, a lower heating expense.

The insulation of the walls of m ouse can be a j economy Up to 45% in heating and air conditioning so p o perform the work
of this home is an investment that is amortized in the short term .

In Acertus we opt usually louse r the system myself transdose on the walls of the house, insulation lift inside a double
wall based on profiles and laminated plasterboard used to “brake” to prevent the heat of escape from the housing through
these pores of building materials. This solution will subtract a few centimeters of space, but it is a good solution for
thermal and acoustic insulation problems.

Isolation result live transposed

The most common type of transformation used in house construction is autosupporting transduction , because with it there is
a noticeable improvement in acoustic and thermal insulation in the applied wall. In other cases, you can also use direct and
semidirects (wall-mounted plates or screw plates to teachers respectively)

Self-supporting conveyor consisting of a strong galvanized steel frame, on which is screwed, by the face of the house, one
or more plasterboard of different thicknesses. In the facade walls incorporated in the interior of the insulating material,
to bring improvements in the thermal and acoustic characteristics required.

The direct work is the building unit made by “gluing” directly to the wall plasterboard, which in the case of the facades
are usually installed plates with insulating materials incorporated to give the thermal characteristics.

The sem i-direct work unit corresponds to the constructed construction, fixing the “Omega” plasterboard profiles directly to
the wall, on which one or more plasterboards are screwed. In the case of fa├žades, the plates with integrated insulating
materials are usually installed to give the thermal characteristics.

Pay attention to the pens

The condensation effect inside the crystals is due to the temperature difference between the outside and the inside. This is
another fundamental point by which energy is lost. The most insulating carpentry is PVC and wood , followed by high- grade
aluminum with thermal break (RPT).

It would also be desirable to set a frame for the window to fit perfectly. But it also influences the thickness of the
profiles and the degree of sealing that is achieved with the design of the same. Finally, it is advisable to adjust the size
of the interstices according to the time, the exposure of the house and the orientation. On the other hand, a very divided
leaf has more losses than a whole leaf.
