Heating in the house


The heating in the house is a big indicator of energy efficiency. Not surprisingly, the energy efficiency classes of buildings are assigned precisely on the basis of the amount of electricity needed to heat every meter of your home. The heating in the house, is one of the processes that involve the greatest expenditure of energy and therefore the greatest pollution, which is why it is necessary to save on heat production. Unfortunately, much of the heat produced is lost through walls, doors and windows. The first step to move towards greater energy efficiency for the Home heating, is to check the window frames: hinges and hinges can be better adjusted in order to eliminate any draft. If you find it too difficult to adjust hinges and hinges and you don't want to pay a worker for labor, there are special adhesive materials available at the hardware store, designed to eliminate the drafts of the windows.

A large dispersion of heat also occurs through walls and attics. The insertion of insulating cavities - the so-called insulation of the floors - allows savings of up to 30% on Home heating, a huge economic saving that amortizes the cost of setting up the insulation in a few years. Wall insulation is one of the main parameters to consider for better energy efficiency. With the European Directives 2002/91 / EC "Energy performance in buildings"And 2006/32 / EC"End-use efficiency of energy and energy services", The European Union has imposed on all member states to enforce minimum energy efficiency standards, provided for both new buildings and existing ones. In Italy, the latest Legislative Decree implementing these directives came into force on 25 June 2009 with Presidential Decree 59/09.

In addition to thermal insulation, another fundamental factor for the heating in the house, is the choice of radiators. Modern radiators almost all perform well, but as in any category, there is always the best choice: the ideal would be to let the heat out of the floor to improve its distribution. Hot air, as is well known, tends to move from bottom to top, therefore the installation of radiant panels (see photo) on the floor, could optimize the Home heating also allowing to save space in the premises.
