insulation balcony details
Insulation of balconies or loggias, follows after you have installed the windows. Glazing, will not have the effect you want, the temperature on the balcony , will not differ much from the outside temperature . Comfortable temperature can be kept on the balcony just insulate it, for these purposes, use energy-efficient insulation materials , since the size of balconies and loggias not clutter the walls allow large layers of insulation.
Choose the type of insulating material for balcony
Determine what kind of insulation should be used for the balcony . In the construction market there are several types of insulation to lodge we will only fit two – Minplita or extruded polystyrene .
Speaking of extruded polystyrene foam , it is more energy-efficient , ie, heat transfer coefficient is lower than that of mineral wool , but also vapor permeability unlike wool below , but rather is completely absent . Expanded polystyrene is combustible and is more expensive. It can be used for thermal insulation of the floor on the balcony , it is excellent abrasion resistance , you can walk on it , pour it on the floor. Attach it is not necessary, it fits into the grooves and hides the seams . For warming the floor.
Wall insulation balcony
For insulating side walls on the balcony , it is appropriate to apply the basalt insulation, weighing not more than 50 kg/m3 , you can choose the brand Ecover or TIZOL , these boards are non-combustible and have a water vapor transmission rate . In order that would prevent condensation ( moisture ) in the balcony , we should make a sealed vapor barrier on the inside of Stroizola or IZOSPAN , vapor barrier will not allow the air inside the building , the saturated vapor to penetrate the outer wall, which excludes the formation of condensation on the walls of the balconies or terraces.
Not Insulate the wall that separates the balcony and the room, she is the only conductor of heat in the loggia.
How good was insulated with loggia, a thermal insulation keeps the heat to maintain a comfortable temperature in the balcony , install additional sources of heat , often make a warm floor, it is also mounted with the use of extruded polystyrene foam.
