A good home insulation is crucial to the comfort of your house by eliminating cold floors and the risk of mold formation, whatever the season, whilst allowing you to save money on heating costs. A home insulation made by a thermal insulation specialist will ensure you a well-done job, which will last for many years.
“A complete home insulation to reduce your energy consumption at the lowest cost“
When undertaking renovation work, it is important to check the integrity of the framing to determine if the elements it is behaving are well covered with insulating materials.
Ensure that the insulation is installed continuously to cover all joints and joints between enclosure components, such as transitions between walls, ceilings and floors in contact with outside air, The floor or an adjacent unheated space.

Insulation of the roof
As the roof is a place, which usually generates and accumulates a lot of heat in the summer. Therefore, it is necessary to consider an unrecognized criterion, namely the thermal capacity or phase shift of the insulator. This is what allows it to increase calories before restoring them with a time ideally greater than 8 – 10 hours in order to match the day-night phase shift. Insulating the roof is not only useful in the winter. No one wants to live in a giant furnace in the middle of summer.
Regardless of the type of roof or ceiling, there are several aspects to consider before starting the insulation work on the roof.
- Accessibility: Check if there are obstacles in the roof and enough space to move around.
- Framing Condition: Mold and rot are indicia of advanced condensation problems. It will be necessary to identify the causes and adjust them before adding the insulation.
- Recessed Light Fixtures: The spaces around standard recessed fixtures are difficult to seal and can cause fires if covered with insulation.
Insulation of the attic
Is your attic quite isolated? As you already know, the heat is rising, so it is normal to infer that a poorly insulated attic will increase heating bills during the winter season. Additionally, as you will experience considerable heat loss, it will be difficult to achieve balanced comfort.
There are three ways to isolate an existing floor and they are not applicable to all cases.
- Bottom Insulation: An insulation is attached to the underside of the floor and optionally covered with a tinker.
- Insulation from the top: insulation is placed directly on the floor and covered with a coating allowing circulation.
- Insulation between the structural elements of the floor: The insulation is placed between the structural elements and the circulation surface.
When renovating, it is important to prioritize the choice of walls to be thermally improved. Firstly, it must be checked whether the improvement of the insulation on the whole surface is financially possible as well as thermally and ecologically useful. Peripheral insulation, when feasible, is often sufficient. Investing in the treatment of other walls (walls, facades) is sometimes preferable.
However, when the lower floor is located above the outdoor environment or an adjacent room (basement, crawl space or local) that is strongly ventilated and the installation of the insulation from below is possible, thermal improvement of the floor is fully justified.
Insulation of the basement and foundations
Insulation of the basement is a guarantee of comfort and a good way to save on the energy bill. The subsoil has certain characteristics that must not be overlooked when isolating the foundations from the inside, since a greater or lesser portion of the walls is below ground level.
The concrete of the foundations is conducive to the formation of condensation. Therefore, the initial application of an uninterrupted insulating layer (continuous insulation) offers a double advantage:
- Provides superior insulation by eliminating heat transfer to the foundation through the frame of the walls
- It avoids any contact between the concrete and all the materials likely to absorb water (wood, insulation wool, etc.).
To give you an idea of what a heat loss looks like, here is a picture of the importance of good insulation.
