ventilated facade for energy efficiency

Summer is coming and with it, many of us decided to renovate the appearance of our homes, either by changing their image or taking measures to effectively isolate it from the outside temperatures, sometimes so high in the summertime.

Therefore, if you do not want to waste your money on air conditioning, these tips can help you improve the energy efficiency of your home ...

INSULATION TO KEEP OUT THE HEAT

Insulating ensures a pleasant indoor environment throughout the year, regardless of climate.

In terms of thermal energy, ventilated facades can reduce the amount of heat that buildings absorb in hot weather conditions due to partial reflection of solar radiation by the covering and the ventilated air gap.

However, by improving the energy performance of your home, you save money, increase the value of your property and contribute to sustainable development. That’s a cost-effective solution, much better than air conditioner!

What types of insulation are there?

  • Roof insulation 
  • Glass Insulation 
  • Internal Insulation 
  • External Insulation 
  • Floor Insulation 

There are several types of insulation, but external insulation is vital, and choosing a rainscreen cladding system is the best solution to transform your home in energy efficient.
