Insulation is necessary to reduce energy consumption, sound pollution and improve the comfort and quality of life in new or existing buildings regardless of the construction system. Environmental Quality Insulation fights global warming as it reduces greenhouse gases. Insulating your home is an ecological process. The signing of the Kyoto agreements was a major stage in collective awareness of the need to protect the environment by fighting global warming. Energy Savings Thermal insulation, by reducing heat wastage, minimises energy consumption (demand for heating) and therefore reduces the heating bill, consumption and pollution by up to 80%. Comfort in Summer and Winter Comfort in the home depends on maintaining a good inside temperature regardless of the season. Winter and summer comfort depend on very high resistant thermal insulation for all surfaces (including windows) + ventilation adapted to the season + outside blocking elements (doors, shutters) + the building’s air tightness. Acoustic Comfort In the last 25 years, noise has become one of the major sources of pollution. Humans, who cannot physiologically block out noise as they can the light by closing their eyes, have felt the need to protect themselves. Fire Protection The aim of fire protection for buildings is to save life of occupants and limit as much as possible any fire-related damages to their health. In order to achieve this objective, the following is necessary: 1.Reduce evacuation time; 2.Increase safety of evacuation conditions; 3.Reduce the quantity and opacity of smoke, gas emissions and rapid temperature increase; 4.Guarantee stability of the building, at least until its evacuation.
