You’d be forgiven for thinking that installing thermal insulation in Dubai is not exactly a priority for homeowners in the city-state. After all, Dubai is the land of sun, sea and sand. A haven for holidaymakers and a paradise for anyone lucky enough to live there. Annual temperatures range from the low twenty degrees Celsius in the depths of winter to the high thirties and above in the height of summer. Why would you need to insulate your home?
Well, insulation will keep your home warm in the winter – and cool in the summer. Heat energy is transferred in and out of environments by three basic mechanisms: conduction, convection and radiation. Homes without proper insulation are 35% less efficient than those whose owners employ a thermal insulation contractor in Dubai – such as Blue Seal – to maximize the energy efficiency of their home.
The most common insulation materials slow conductive and convective heat flow. The best insulation materials are highly proficient in regulating the temperature of your home – something that’s paramount in Dubai for sustained comfort and well-being.
So, if you haven’t yet considered contacting thermal insulation companies and getting a quote to have your home insulated, here are seven reasons why you should.
Heat flows from warmer to cooler environments to keep the temperature consistent. Without thermal insulation you won’t be able to keep your home cool as the temperature rises. This poses a problem as it can create a stifling interior environment – and cost you money.
An air conditioner recirculating cool are consistently is very costly. Installing thermal insulation in Dubai will save you money in the long term – and make your home more energy efficient.
Installing thermal insulation will increase the general thermal comfort of your home. What does this mean? Reducing the warm air in the summer will make your home a more pleasurable place to be – and create the perfect environment to retreat to should the temperature outside be too extreme.
Conversely, should it become unseasonably cool outside, a top thermal insulation company in Dubai – like Blue Seal – will insulate your home, keeping you warm and comfortable.
Reduces Thermal Bridges
Thermal bridges occur in aspects of a buildings’ envelope where there is insufficient insulation. It’s estimated that thermal bridges are responsible for up 35% of the thermal loss a building incurs, whilst increasing condensation and mold growth.
However, these issues can be negated by installing thermal insulation. Not only will your home be more energy efficient but much safer without the threat of mold spores in the environment.
Condensation and Mold
Whilst we’re on the topic of condensation and mold, employing one of the leading thermal insulation companies in the UAE – Blue Seal – to manage all aspects of thermal insulation will secure your home against this threat.
Condensation is caused by the temperature difference between the external and internal vertical surfaces in your home – the walls and windows. Insulation helps to effectively reduce the risk posed by excess condensation in your home and damp walls with 100% waterproof and hydrophobic protective layer.
Mold growth in domestic homes in also directly connected to air temperature and the interior humidity of your home. Adding an extra layer of insulation keeps the surface temperature of the walls and windows of your home regulated, preventing the growth of mold.
Adding a long-lasting protective barrier to your home, one that has been tailored to the finish of your home, creates a long-lasting protective barrier on your external walls. External wall insulation (EWI) fills any cracks and gaps in the wall, preventing damp on the building envelope and protecting your home against heavy rainfall or sustained baking temperatures.
Moreover, with its highly durable properties, EWI protects the brickwork and construction of your home making it one of the best thermal insulation options for homes in the UAE or anywhere in the world.
Not only will thermal insulation significantly improve the energy efficiency of your home, it will also enhance the overall aesthetic appearance with a range of renders, silicone paints, bricks or tiles. Homeowners that hire a thermal insulation contractor in Dubai can take advantage of having a finish tailored to the style and size of their home, creating a lovely and inviting appearance.
Minimizes the Environmental Impact and Prevent Climate Change
The last reason to install thermal insulation to your home is not one about functionality or aesthetics, comfort or health, but environment. In today’s world, sustainable solutions, carbon footprints and minimizing environmental impact have grown to be incredibly important to consumers.
Top thermal insulation companies in Dubai and the UAE, like Blue Seal, are focused on providing solution that focus on sustainability. Minimizing the energy consumed for domestic heating and air conditioning can reduce CO2 emissions and help to prevent climate change.
Reducing fossil fuel consumption will secure a more sustainable planet for future generations to enjoy and less concern around the price and accessibility of fuel for all in the coming decades.
