1. Exterior walls
If you want to maintain the existing appearance of the building, e.g. bricks or old stone walls, but you want to keep the house warm in winter or cool in summer, reduce energy usage and limit unwanted noise, it’s also possible to insulate from the inside.
2. Pitched roof
A large part of a building’s energy loss is through the roof. So it’s the first place you should seek to insulate to maximise the energy efficiency or your home and reduce your reliance on the grid. A well-insulated roof can significantly cut heat loss, meaning your house will stay warm for longer, even in the face of a heating outage. By using a fire-resilient material such as stone wool to insulate your roof, the fire safety of your home also improves greatly.
3. Interior walls
The insulation of interior walls, floors, and ceilings can improve comfort and reduce unwanted noise in the home. In the case of fire, it contains fires to the room in which they started, both keeping residents safe and limiting damages to your home.
Warm summers can make a poorly insulated loft unbearably hot – and cold winters make it expensive to heat. The high density of stone wool makes it an efficient material for creating a comfortable indoor climate all year round, reducing noise and helping you save money on your energy bill.
Insulation of the basement can reduce energy use, ensure a comfortable temperature and protect from damp. Should your basement get flooded,
stone wool will not retain water after draining, limiting the potential for mold.
