Living in a comfortable home is everyone’s dream, but the price is often high: high utility bills and energy waste are just some consequences. Fortunately, there is a sustainable and effective solution: the Advantages thermal insulation
When a thermal coat is installed, the difference is immediately noticeable: the microclimate becomes more pleasant without raising the temperature or the power of the air-conditioning system too much, humidity is reduced, and acoustic benefits can also be seen.
At Diasen, we have been involved in installing thermal insulation for many years, helping people transition to more comfortable and sustainable buildings. We know how important it is to live in homes that are warm in winter and cool in summer but also energy efficient.
We, therefore, provide state-of-the-art, ecological and high-performance solutions that respect the environment and the needs of those who live in them. We strive to offer tailor-made thermal solutions, taking care of the well-being and liveability of environments. Find out more on our website or contact us for advice.
What is a thermal coat?
In a nutshell, it is an insulation technique whereby an insulating material is applied to the building’s outer, or inner, wall. This prevents heat loss during the winter and heat build-up during the summer, ensuring a stable and comfortable indoor temperature.
But the advantages of thermal insulation are not limited to the house’s temperature. In fact, thanks to the thermal insulation of the walls, the amount of energy needed to heat or cool the rooms is reduced, thus reducing energy bills and environmental impact.
Moreover, as we have already emphasised in our other blog articles, which we invite you to read, thermal insulation helps reduce the formation of mould and condensation, improving indoor air quality and preventing possible health problems.
Not to be underestimated, then, is the ability of thermal insulation to increase the property’s value, making it more attractive on the real estate market. In fact, thanks to its effectiveness in thermal insulation, the building is more energy efficient, an aspect that potential buyers increasingly appreciate. It should also be remembered that in the next 10 years, the less efficient buildings will probably no longer be marketable. Therefore, it will be necessary to undertake interventions to make them more sustainable.
In short, thermal insulation is a solution that allows you to live in a comfortable, sustainable and energy-efficient home. Thanks to the advantages thermal insulation, you can save on energy costs, improve indoor air quality and increase the value of your property. Is this not the future we all aspire to?
Ways to insulate the house
Thermal insulation can be realised in different ways, depending on the characteristics of the building and the aesthetic and functional requirements.
The thermal insulation system with plaster
The thermal insulation plaster system involves the application of a thermal biomalta on the surface of the building wall. This system is particularly suitable for creating beautiful, comfortable, sustainable solutions. To carry out this type of intervention, it is recommended to request the intervention of an expert applicator so that the work is beautiful, well done and durable.
Thermal insulating paint is an innovative solution to consolidate and strengthen the thermal insulation of walls, without invasive, costly and time-consuming work.
To strengthen thermal insulation with a heat-insulating paint, a few simple steps must be followed, starting with the preparation of the surfaces, which must be clean and free of dust, dirt or any stains.
Diasen’s heat-insulating paints are applied by brush, trowel, roller or spray with versatile technologies that do not require the intervention of an experienced applicator.
Thermal insulating paints are available in different variants, depending on the specific needs of the house and the climatic conditions of the area in which it is located. These products are versatile and can be used on various surfaces.
The advantages of heat-insulating paint are several: it is a very light and thin material that is resistant to weather, sunlight and UV radiation.
Sustainable thermal insulation: is it possible?
Sustainable thermal coats are the ideal solution to make your home more energy efficient, reduce consumption and improve living comfort. Today, the building sector is becoming more and more sustainable, and it is important to choose thermal insulation systems made of natural or recyclable materials with low environmental impact and long life.
At Diasen we are very careful about this. We use materials such as cork, pumice stone, perlite and expanded amorphous silicon. All of these porous materials have excellent insulating and breathable properties, guaranteeing greater energy efficiency and a healthier indoor climate.
Cork is the king of our thermal insulation production. It is present in our screeds, biomalta, and paints, due to its high porosity, which can retain air and not disperse heat through the walls.
Among the various materials used for thermal coats, cork is a sustainable, high-performance choice that provides excellent thermal and acoustic insulation, increased wall breathability and resistance to humidity.
