In conditions of fuel and energy resource scarcity and their annual price increases, the question of their rational consumption during the operation of a house becomes acute for an average consumer. Quality thermal insulation of a building allows for a significant reduction in heat loss and, consequently, saving money on heating in the future. In order for a house to be comfortable and energy-efficient, it is necessary, first of all, to properly protect it from heat loss.

Walls and the roof are the main sources of heat loss in a house. By insulating the walls and roof with Eurobud polystyrene foam boards, you can reduce heat loss in the house by up to 60% and consequently save significantly on utility bills.

Heat loss in the overall heat balance of a house:

  • 25% – 30% through walls and corners,
  • 30-35% through the roof,
  • 10% – 15% through windows and doors,
  • 5% – 8% through basements and foundations.
  • Other heat losses are caused by factors such as chimneys and ventilation, where losses can amount to up to 12%.

Improperly executed construction works during the building structure erection and poor thermal insulation of the building lead to a decrease in its thermal functionality. Heat losses can be minimized, among other methods, by using high-quality polystyrene thermal insulation from the EUROBUD brand. Excellent polystyrene thermal insulation will reduce heat losses, seal windows and doors, and subsequently reduce high heating expenses.

It is important to remember that for effective facade thermal insulation, it is recommended to use expanded polystyrene foam with a density of 12.5-18 kg/m³ (EPS 60 – EPS 100), with a thickness of 15-25 cm. For roof insulation, expanded polystyrene foam with a density of 15-35 kg/m³ (EPS 80 – EPS 250) and a thickness of 20-35 cm, depending on the load, is recommended.
