Thermal insulation

Isolation can be problematic and must be a major concern from the first investments. The communication around renewable energies, even if it is quite honorable, often leads to investing in technologies studied to compensate for losses, but it is necessary to think that it is essential to reduce them upstream in order to save of energy.

The advantages of insulation

Likewise, we can believe our houses well insulated because equipped with double glazing or stone walls of 80 cm, but this is often wrong. Investment in appropriate insulation saves time, a certain return on investment and is a better investment compared to complicated technologies. This profitability revolves around 5 years for a near-life placement of the habitat while complex technologies require maintenance and have a lower lifespan.

Continuity ThermiqueSchema House

In a habitat, about 30% of the losses are by roofing, 25% by walls and 10% by thermal bridges. Good insulation should be homogeneous. Indeed, if isolating only one part is effective, you increase the losses at the same time by the less isolated parts. Thus, good interior insulation will increase the losses by thermal bridges.

Thermal insulation from the outside

The insulation of the walls from the outside is the best solution and is, therefore, an excellent investment. It is more advantageous to insulate your habitat from the outside than to replace your heating system. For a comparable investment, it is possible to reduce the needs upstream rather than to compensate for the losses. Enology, therefore, proposes the thermal insulation system by the exterior thermal look.

Insulation of attics, walls, and ceilings
Today it is possible to isolate yourself with healthy materials like cellulose wadding, at a reasonable price. In France, the habits of insulation are still at the glass wool or the rock wool. Yet these are materials whose harmful and irritating characteristics are well known. They are very expensive to manufacture in terms of grey energy and therefore heavy with environmental consequences (let's say that it is always better to insulate with these materials than not to isolate at all).
Iconology offers cellulose wadding at a competitive price. It is the main insulating material in Canada. Cotton wool is a neutral product, with high insulating power, which repels termites and rodents, prevents the formation of mold, supports high humidity levels, is classified M1 retardant to fire, is inexpensive in energy to manufacture and is well More efficient in summer.
Thus, to buy cellulose wadding is to be a winner in terms of insulation comfort, it is to make a gesture for the environment and it is to help this local sector to develop. Today is the most rational choice because it represents the best compromise between price/comfort and ecology. What to think about...
The following information is communicated by the Info-energy area of Brittany.
Grey Energy comparison, a huge advantage for cotton wool:
Glass wool: 150 to 250 KWH/m3
Cellulose wadding: 6 KWH/m3

To familiarize yourself with the insulation of your habitat, we advise you to visit the following page: Isolation sheets ADEME (Agency of the Environment and the control of energy).

Mineral Fiber insulation

We do not market mineral fiber insulation for reasons of the application of precautionary principles.

Regulatory Important Classification: Mineral wools are classified by the European Union Category 3 carcinogens (substances of concern to humans due to possible carcinogenic effects but for which information Available do not allow a satisfactory assessment) and irritating to the skin. However, exemptions are possible for non-persistent wools, i.e. eliminated by the biological media of the lung. In this case, they are only classified as irritating.

Biopersistent wools are labeled as "harmful (Xn)" with the following risk phrases and cautionary tips:
-R40-suspected carcinogenic effect-insufficient evidence,
-R38-Irritating to the skin;
-S36/37-Wear appropriate protective clothing and gloves.

Non-persistent wools are labeled "irritant (Xi)" with the risk phrase "R38-irritating to the skin" and the advice phrase "S36/37-Wear appropriate protective clothing and gloves".

Urticarial and eczema were also observed. Eczema would be caused by additives in wool, particularly resins, formaldehyde and sometimes metals (nickel, cobalt, chromium). (INRS Source).
