Warming of a wooden house

The development of building technologies today allows us to talk about energy-efficient houses that are themselves capable of generating heat. About wooden houses this can not be said. However, due to their environmental friendliness, they continue to be popular. And correctly selected heaters help keep them warm throughout the year and be competitive in the construction market.

The thermal insulation is inversely proportional to the density of the raw materials. Therefore, the insulation of the wooden house takes place with the participation of porous materials. In one house several options of insulation are used, most often 3-4. Everything depends on its design.

Warming of the foundation

The warming of the foundation of a wooden house does not differ from the warming of the foundation of the brick structure. The main task is to prevent soil swelling at a negative temperature. In a permanently heated house, the soil under the sole does not freeze. But it's still necessary to insulate the foundation. As a heater, extruded polystyrene foam and polyisocyanurate foam are used. Their main property: high thermal insulation and strength in the absence of hygroscopicity.

Wall warming

Thermal insulation of the walls of a wooden house usually consists in the use in the construction of an intervent insulation. In a complex with a profiled bar 190 mm thick, this is enough to keep the heat in the house. It can be of several types: jute, linen, flax-jute, polyester fibers, woolen. The latter is the most modern. However, it has a high cost, and therefore is rarely used. Specialists of the company "Yumaks" chose the jute insulation. For owners of future houses this is a budget option. At the same time, savings do not affect quality. Jute fibers are not processed and retain their natural properties.

Полностью закрывать стены из бруса утеплителем, по мнению экспертов, - ошибка. Профилированный брус изначально выглядит эстетично, поэтому немного дороже остальных материалов. Применяя наружные утеплители, вы обрекаете себя на лишние отделочные работы и затраты на них.

Roof insulation

Thermal insulation of the roof of the wooden house prevents the main loss of thermal energy. Through the roof the house loses about a third of the heat. So, 30% of the financial costs of heating are wasted. Therefore, it is important to choose a good insulation for the roof. It must meet several requirements: increased moisture resistance, low flammability, environmental friendliness and durability of the material. The most common insulation for the roof: ecowool on a cellulose base, polystyrene, mineral wool, expanded clay.

The heat can be saved by intensive heating. However, this will lead to over-drying of air, which will negatively affect the health of the inhabitants of the house. Savings on heaters are doubtful, therefore it is not necessary to neglect them. To feel all the advantages of living in a wooden house, it is important to preserve its unique microclimate.
