Gas shortages on the horizon? Rising energy prices? If you’re smart, you’ll use the summer to get your own home in shape for the winter. A useful tip: effective interior insulation can save loads of energy and hard cash into the bargain!
Poorly insulated cold walls are often to blame for cold homes in winter and a lot of additional heating energy needs to be used to heat homes. Erfurt & Sohn’s KlimaTec energy-saving interior wall system offers a simple and cost-effective solution to this problem. It works on the principle of the thermal decoupling of internal and external walls: a thermal nonwoven material applied to the interior surface of the wall increases the internal surface temperature by up to two degrees Celsius, without the need to heat up the masonry behind it. The time needed to heat up a room is thus reduced by up to 75 percent – coupled with energy savings of up to 22 percent! Another benefit of KlimaTec: the higher wall temperature means that less moisture condenses on the surface, effectively preventing the formation of mould. The thermal nonwoven can be applied with ease – and all popular breathable wallcoverings can then be adhered on top and painted if required.
Simply contact a decorator for advice if you don’t feel able to apply it yourself or want to save even more with an interior insulation system. More at www.erfurt.com/klimatec
