THERMAL INSULATION AND ENERGY SAVINGS
Approximately 40% of the total energy consumed is consumed in residences. More than 50% of energy costs can be saved by renovating the exterior thermal insulation of buildings. Even in new structures built in accordance with passive energy or zero energy standards, operating costs can be reduced to much lower levels.
The investment to be made in insulation pays for itself in an average of 3 years. VARNA YAPI Exterior Thermal Insulation Systems enable two-way energy savings by reducing heating costs in cold seasons and reducing the need for air conditioning in hot seasons.
THERMAL INSULATION AND COMFORT
Today, one of the purposes of insulation systems is to prevent the occurrence of structural damage over time as a result of harmful heat movements and vapor condensation. Therefore, it is to keep the maintenance costs of the building at a limited level, to save on heating energy in winter and cooling in summer, in accordance with the comfort conditions of the indoor environment.
Just as the creation of comfortable living conditions in the building is important for human health, the protection of the building against external factors has the same importance for the structures we live in and which we expect to be durable and long-lasting. In order to provide a comfortable environment, there should be a temperature difference of at most 2-3°C between the ambient temperature and the inner surface temperature of the wall.
THERMAL INSULATION MODIFICATION
Things to consider when deciding on thermal insulation for existing houses: 1- Preferring a system for exterior thermal insulation renovation. 2- Correct Application: No matter how good a product is, if it is not applied correctly, it will not show its true performance. 3- Quality Certificate: The quality norms of the thermal insulation system to be selected are important. Because it shows that the product has passed certain tests and reached the user and its performance has been documented. 4- System Warranty: Warranty periods for VARNA YAPI Exterior Thermal Insulation Systems start from 5 years.
THERMAL INSULATION AND HEALTH
Exterior thermal insulation systems contribute to the healthy protection of buildings. Thanks to the well-insulated exterior walls, the air flow is reduced indoors, which positively affects the residential climate. Air flow is a serious problem, especially in old houses and detached houses. These problems can be avoided with thermal insulation applied to the exterior.
In addition, by preventing humid environments with thermal insulation, the reproduction of microorganisms can be prevented. This prevents the air in the space from becoming harmful to the respiratory tract. It greatly prevents the risk of upper respiratory tract diseases, especially in small children.
THERMAL INSULATION AND SUSTAINABILITY
The issues that have been accepted undisputedly in terms of thermal insulation today are that it is environmentally friendly and provides savings to the home owner, regardless of which building materials are applied. Buildings that have a thermal insulation system applied to their exteriors with quality systems and by professionals need renovation only after 30 years. Baumit aims to leave a better nature to future generations thanks to its low energy needs and 50% lower carbon dioxide emissions in summer and winter months.
ENERGY IDENTITY CERTIFICATE
The obligation to obtain an Energy Performance Certificate, which was initiated in 2011 as a result of the efforts of the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources and the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization and is planned to be completed in 2017, aims to make buildings in Turkey use energy more efficiently. Energy Performance Certificate (EKB) can be explained as the classification of buildings' energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions between A and G. After 2017, it will not be possible to buy, sell and rent buildings and apartments that do not have an Energy Identity Certificate.
When the time expires and this document is received for each building, the energy classes of the buildings will be an evaluation criterion for the consumer, as in the case of automobiles or white goods. Exterior Thermal Insulation System is one of the most important and most economical measures that can be taken to improve the energy class of buildings.
WHAT IS THERMAL INSULATION?
When it comes to long-lasting and economical exterior thermal insulation, the first choice is mineral thermal insulation systems with EPS plates, with a wide variety of facade design possibilities.
VARNA YAPI offers a perfect solution for those who consider sustainability as well as cost, and who do not want to compromise in technical and aesthetic terms on facades.
Thermal insulation is not only useful in winter. As it keeps the walls warm in cold weather in winter, it also acts as an air conditioner in summer. Thermal insulation is accepted as the most effective and economical solution to effectively protect the environment in existing and new buildings, to close building physics faults and to save life-long fuel costs.
In non-insulated buildings, heat loss is often experienced from many places.
While thermal insulation systems prevent the loss of heat and the penetration of cold, you will save energy and fuel. Because of the old walls, heat from 1000 liters of fuel per year was lost. Thermographic footage of the heat camera shows how heat is lost from poor building techniques.
Thanks to VARNA YAPI insulation application, heat losses in walls and thermal bridges are prevented.
