Heat transfers from high temperature to low temperature along the path where the resistance is lowest. Thus a temperature gradient is formed from the high temperature zone to the low temperature zone. Thermal insulation reduces the heat flow through the temperature gradient and protects the gradient.
When all structures are insulated in line with the standards with the right applications;
- Environmental pollution decreases as savings increase due to high energy efficiency,
- No additional maintenance or protection measure is required if the insulation is applied correctly,
- Comfort increases, temperature distributes more evenly within the building,
- Waste gas outlet and thus environmental pollution are decreased as a result of using less energy for cooling and heating thanks to insulation,
- The building envelope is protected against cracks arising from changes in the temperature,
- The building envelope is protected against the negative impacts of condensation and the corrosion,
- Lower insulation material thickness would be enough,
- Practical details are allowed on trafficable floors and roofs thanks to high compression strength,
- No vapor breaker is required on internal wall insulation thanks to the vapor diffusion strength,
- Insulation is light and easy to shape.
The insulation should always be made considering the need of the entire building. The insulation of only living spaces is not the right and efficient approach without ceiling and floor insulation. To maintain the building temperature, all areas causing loss of heat should be identified and considered while insulating
