Summer heat protection On a global scale more energy is used keeping buildings cool than there is used on heating them. The solution can be so simple. With natural wood fibre insulations from STEICO you can save on an expensive air-conditioning unit as well as saving on heating costs in the winter. Suitable all year round STEICO Insulations save Energy and Heating costs in winter. The same Insulations prevent overheating in summer. Noise is also absorbed effectively. | Thermal Diffusivity: the key to summer heat protection Attic rooms are particularly susceptible to increased temperatures...

Summer heat protection It is particularly important to consider Amplitude Dampening and Phase Shift in roof areas. The ratio of external surface to room volume is very high, so Attic Rooms have a high area for potential temperature transfer. The areas directly under the roof coverings can get very hot in summer (up to 80 °C) and this leads to increased heat in the rooms below. As many roof constructions have a very low thermal storage mass, they are particularly suitable for the installation of natural insulations from STEICO. With the exception of the roof cladding and the internal...

Summary The Facts don’t lie: STEICO works That temperature behaves this way and has a direct influence on the comfort and health of internal climates is apparent in the research of Professor Hauser, one of the founding fathers of German energy efficiency. Using the example of a one bedroom house we are able to reduce the “uncomfortable hours” by swapping the mineral wool for Wood Fibre insulation by almost 50 %. To put it simply, one sweats a lot less. With the use of Wood Fibre sheathing boards with a density of 150 kg/m3 the “uncomfortable hours” compared to mineral wool insulations can...
