Making Energy-saving Walls for House

Architecture science has taught how to make a comfortable home to live in. All aspects related to the house or building is carefully discussed. Starting from determining the direction and position of the house that is laid based on the condition of the situation where the house will be built, the materials will be used to build a house that is expected to provide comfort to the occupants and can save energy when occupied, to the study of furniture or home appliances to support the activities of the residents.

What we will discuss here is how to make the external wall of the house so that later this house can save energy when occupied. It does sometimes seem complicated but the thing to remember is that this built house will be used for a long period of time. Imagine how much you should spend all the time when your home is made with energy saving materials while you want comfort in the house.


For example:

When building houses in cold areas, the thermal insulation characteristics of house’s external walls is an important element in saving heat energy. The formulation given by the construction of low energy buildings is strongly influenced by the relationship between various building compositions. Significant heat loss can occur in this location. We can indicate the value of insulation that can be achieved by using cross standards describing different types of building materials.

A wide variety of construction materials are available, such as concrete, bricks, wood, insulation materials, plaster, cork, reed and clay. Clay has proven itself as a building material for thousands of years. It is the most common and most tested material in the world and, biologically and ecologically, is an exemplary material. The finished clay insulation product is now available to make energy saving external walls and is highly suitable for current technology levels.
