Thermal insulation

Thermal insulation in buildings is used primarily to keep the heat inside the buildings.

Thermal insulation is the material used in buildings to reduce the transfer of heat between indoors and outdoors.

Thermal insulation must be considerably resistant to the passage of heat. It is placed inside a building’s heating system and contributes to both the ideal internal thermal conditions and to the reduction in thermal dispersion. This leads to an overall reduction in the entire building’s energy requirements.

The increasing use of insulating materials in buildings is due to the recent legislation on energy saving (and the subsequent integration of Law Decree 192/2005 311/2006) which set minimum standards for a building’s energy performance in the designing and construction stages and in managing green buildings. Thermal insulation work carried out on buildings is regulated by the provisions set out by the European Community which designers and contractors must adhere to. In order to avoid going against these regulations it is recommended that the legal requirements are looked at in detail and even more so the technical capabilities of the installers. Installers must have undergone adequate training and must have the appropriate certification.
