6 useful tips for renovating your house

6 useful tips for renovating your house

Guided by our experiences on the theme “Restructuring“, we would like to present some useful solutions for these interventions which, as we know, involve a substantial investment, aimed at these objectives:

- increase the thermal insulation as much as possible
- increase the efficiency of heat production plants, considering that renewable energy in the future will predominate, therefore:
……..THE FUTURE WILL BE ELECTRIC…..
- always choose the suitable and customized product for each single installation

Here are six tips to renovate your home in a sustainable way:

1. Increasing thermal insulation is crucial for energy consumption in both winter and summer. The “standard“ solution is that of the external coat and the replacement of the old fixtures; if the intervention with the external cladding is not feasible, it is possible to intervene with a counter-wall inside with the use of a good insulating material between the external wall and the counter-wall, while on the floor it is necessary to insulate with 30 mm of special material and follow the others stratifications.

2. There are situations where it is not always possible to intervene with the coat, with the internal counterwall and with floor insulation due to “restrictions“ of quotas from respect or constraints of various kinds.

A good thermal insulation of the walls can be obtained by applying a ceramic-based insulating / reflective product with a thickness of 1.5 mm to be applied possibly also indoors, obtaining a thermal insulation comparable to the external coat.

For floor insulation, since the dimensions are not available, it can be solved with an insulator thermal / reflective with a thickness of 3 mm.

These products are distributed by us. For information, write to info@thermaltt.com.

3. Increasing the efficiency of heat production plants does not mean replacing boiler only, but it is necessary to make a correct cost / benefit assessment.

The cost of replacing the boiler and the complete overhaul of the hydronic system, also considering the costs of maintenance over time, must be compared with the installation of a photovoltaic system with storage and a electric heating; so you can evaluate the convenience.

 

4. Use our solutions for electric floor and wall heating; are visible on this site and we anticipate some information.

-Underfloor: the combination of energy produced by photovoltaics and electric underfloor heating are ideal and even more efficient if the “under screed“ heating system is installed, we will obtain a thermal accumulation that releases heat when the photovoltaic does not produce.

- On the wall: The same concept of “thermal storage“ can also be obtained from the radiators of our Matiria line, visible on this site, where you can also see two “under window“ radiators designed for a high thermal accumulation and mounted to replace the old water radiators. This solution is designed to avoid building interventions as much as possible; for the power supply the old pipes can be used, on which the power cable is passed. The heat storage radiators are hooked to a wall panel, already insulated and supplied with the radiator, which fixed to the wall solves the aesthetic problem of the “rear radiator“ and allows easy assembly.

 

5. Choose carbon fiber electrical systems. But why?

As already said: ……..THE FUTURE WILL BE ELECTRIC….. so investing in an electricity system is equivalent to making a contribution to the planet, looking towards a “cleaner“ and more sustainable future.

Among the various proposals for electric heating, many products are presented using the term “CARBON“ even in the case of systems with the use of graphene / copper or aluminum; not to be confused with our PAN (organic) carbon fiber systems which do not produce electromagnetic fields. The carbon fiber, crossed by electrical charges, emits FIR rays with a length of 9 microns (all other systems are less than 4.5 microns) and in the environment they also emit negative ions that make the air purer.

Other attention must be paid to wall, under-plaster or under-plasterboard electrical systems, which, if positioned below 230 cm, must have a special certification with test-report and relative “tecnic file“: if they do not have these certifications, they must not comply with European legislation.

Another important assessment must be made for the “heat pump“, which in situations of external temperature below 0 & deg; C or with humidity over 50% and low temperatures, has difficulty in generating the necessary comfort in the environment.

6. WARRANTIES

The “guarantee“ theme must provide certainty and safety to the final consumer who sometimes commits his life savings in this investment. On the market you can see everything, even electric heating products imported from non-European countries, where the distributor / retailer declares a “lifetime“ guarantee, when the person responsible for any problems caused by the product is always and only the manufacturer (in many products , the manufacturer has no name).

Thermal Technology, already in 2005 started the production of these systems, with indoor and outdoor installations; following constant checks on the installations carried out, it can issue a 15-year guarantee with the certainty that it will soon be extended to 20 years.
