Thermal insulation of rooms has become one of the central aspects of architectural projects in recent years. It is a useful technique for reducing energy waste and improving living comfort. It involves the use of materials that guarantee a good level of energy saving, both in summer and in winter.
The main function of thermal insulation in buildings is to prevent the dispersion of the heat produced inside the structure towards the outside during the colder months. In the hot months, on the contrary, they help to keep the air cool inside the rooms, thus avoiding having to resort to expensive and polluting artificial air conditioning systems.
The best materials for thermal insulation are fire and moisture resistant. Fire resistance is essential to prevent flames from spreading rapidly throughout the structure in the event of an accident. But good moisture resistance is also important, as infiltration can lead to rotting, bacterial growth and corrosion of metal components.
Each of these materials are a key element for improving the thermal properties of modern architecture and guaranteeing the highest level of technical performance in terms of indoor climate protection and reduction of energy waste loads.
