We insulate a wooden house
Half a century ago, the tree was considered the main building material in construction. In villages and small cities you can find a large number of old wooden houses. Such houses were built quite quickly, in them people felt more comfortable.
In the cold in such houses it was warmer, and in the heat it is cooler. Now again popularity has arisen on wood home. They gather according to modern technologies. In many cases, they are deprived of the shortcomings of their predecessors from the last century. But one problem remained. In severe frosts in such houses it becomes cool. For their heating, one has to spend more energy resources, the price of which has not been happy for recently. In such cases, one exit from the current position remains, take the best insulation, and insulate a wooden house.
The tree has good thermal systems, better than many other building materials. But this is not enough for most regions of Russia. So, for example, for Moscow and the Moscow region, so that the structure meets the norms of heat resistance, the thickness of the wooden wall should be approximately 0.5 meters. And most modern log houses have wall thickness in the range of 0.2 – 0.25 meters. If this is a summer house, and it is used only in the summer, then such a wall thickness will be normal for it. With year -round operation, the residents of the house will have two options: in the first case, freeze, experiencing discomfort, in the second, lay out a solid amount for heating.
The main losses of thermal energy are flowing through the walls, ceiling, floor, and windows. About half of thermal losses fall on the walls. This is especially evident with a large difference between the temperature outside and inside the house. According to the laws of thermodynamics, the temperature outside and inside the house strives for equilibrium. To reduce the speed of this process, it is necessary to increase the thermal resistance of the wall. This can be done in one way by hearing the walls. There are various methods how to do it. But in any case, you will need the best insulation.
Any work on insulation of a wooden house should begin with the preparation of the walls. To do this, you need to close all the cracks, clean the walls of dirt, rot, fungus and microorganisms. Soak them with special solutions to protect against such problems. A wooden house can be considered as a separate organism with its own microclimate, habitat. In fact, he must breathe. If you deprive the walls of access to the air. Then irreversible processes may occur in the tree. Only by applying an environmentally friendly best insulation can you achieve the preservation of a natural microclimate.
Insulation of a wooden house with heat -insulating materials is a profitable investment in energy -saving technologies. A pleasant bonus will be a comfortable temperature in the house. In addition, many thermal insulation materials have good sound insulation, which will save you from the noise of the street.
