Insulate living space with Aerogel

Insulate your living space with Aerogel!

Efficient thermal insulation for your home

The Insulate living space with Aerogel is an advanced method of insulating your home efficiently. Here is some important information:

  1. What is aerogel?

    • Aerogel is an extremely light and porous material that originally came from the aerospace industry.
    • It has excellent thermal insulation, even though it takes up very little volume.
    • Aerogel consists of a network of tiny, air-filled cavities that greatly reduce heat transfer.
  2. Advantages of insulating living spaces with Aerogel:

    • Excellent thermal insulation: Aerogel has a very low thermal conductivity (only around 0.013 W/(mK)). This allows you to achieve effective insulation even with thin layers.
    • Space-saving: Compared to conventional insulation materials, aerogel requires less space. So you lose less living space.
    • Good sound insulation: Aerogel not only reduces heat loss, but also noise.
    • Flexibility: Aerogel insulation boards can be installed in angled rooms, behind radiators and on curves.

Thermal insulation with aerogel can be extremely efficient, even with comparatively low insulation thicknesses. To calculate the equivalence between 10 mm aerogel and polystyrene, we use the following formula:

  • Thermal conductivity of aerogel:
    • The thermal conductivity of aerogel is around 0.016 W/(mK) .
  • Thermal conductivity of polystyrene:
    • The thermal conductivity of polystyrene (EPS) varies depending on density and type, but is typically between 0.030 and 0.040 W/(mK).

Now we use the known values:

  • Insulation thickness with polystyrene = 10mm x 0.040 W/(mK)
    0.016 W/(mK) = 25mm

ConclusionIf you want to replace 10 mm of aerogel with polystyrene, you need a polystyrene insulation thickness of approx. 25 mmto achieve similar thermal insulation.

Insulate living space

with interior insulation offers numerous advantages when it comes to making your home more energy-efficient and comfortable. Here are some of the main reasons why you should consider internal insulation:

  1. Energy savings: Well-designed interior insulation can significantly reduce your heating costs. By reducing heat loss through the interior walls, the room temperature remains comfortable without you having to constantly turn up the heating.
  2. Preserving the historical character: If you own an older building with stucco, half-timbering or ornamental painting, internal insulation makes it possible to insulate without affecting the external façade. This way you can preserve the charm and beauty of your home.
  3. Protection against mold growth: Interior insulation regulates the temperature and humidity in the room. This prevents the formation of mold. This is particularly important when replacing old windows with airtight models, as the indoor humidity changes and condensation can form in cold areas.
  4. No scaffolding required: In contrast to external insulation, internal insulation does not require scaffolding. This makes implementation easier and more cost-effective.
  5. Step-by-step approach: You can proceed room by room instead of insulating the entire house at once. This enables flexible implementation according to budget and schedule.
  6. Health benefits: Well-insulated interiors contribute to health prevention. The regulated room temperature and humidity create a pleasant living climate.

All in all, interior insulation offers an effective way to modernize your home, save energy and preserve its historic character at the same time.
