Thermal insulation is an important technology which is used to reduce energy consumption in buildings by preventing heat gain/loss through the building envelope. This technology has been used since the mid-1960s, with the purpose of increasing the energy efficiency of buildings.

Thermal insulation is applied by placing thermal insulation boards on the outside walls of the building.

Benefits of thermal insulation in buildings:

– The rooms remain cold in the summer and warm in the winter therefore provide great comfort.

– The rooms require less energy to maintain the desired room temperature therefore it reduces heating and cooling costs.

– Thermal insulation prevents the roof deck from cracking

– It is fire resistant

– Avoids grey spots created due to condensation

– It is environmentally friendly

– It reduces noise pollution
