Would it not be great if you could insulate your walls with high quality thermal underwear? Just wrap your walls in long johns and warm your house up when it is cold outside? Well, actually, in a way, you can. It is not underwear or long johns, because that would just be weird. However, thermal wall panels are the construction world's closest approximation. Here is more on these panels and how they act like thermal underwear for your home.
Transference of Heat
In homes where there is just traditional fiberglass insulation, there is a constant loss of heat through the walls and attic. If you have a house built with thermal wall panels, heat cannot escape. The panels are thick, and made of steel. They can be welded together inside your walls, sealing off the home from drafts and air flow in and out of the house. Some heat is even transferred back into the house through the walls when it cannot escape through the panels. That equates to a much warmer house and a lesser use of heat from your furnace.
Greater Heating Efficiency
Because less heat is lost with the presence of the panels, you have greater heating efficiency. You could easily set your home at sixty-eight all winter and still feel cozy and warm. Greater heating efficiency saves wear and tear on your furnace..
Less Expensive Heating Bills
Imagine cutting your heating costs in half, or more, because you installed several of these panels inside your walls. The savings alone is something worth considering, even if you are not interested in the other benefits of installing these panels. As you calculate the annual savings for the next ten, twenty, or thirty years, you may be quite pleased with your decision to install thermal wall panels in your house.
Getting the Panels Installed
Construction contractors who work with heavy construction equipment are able to install these panels. They are lightweight, but it is their size and density that makes them difficult to haul, transport and lift into position. Usually a crane assists with the lifting and positioning of the panels until they are secured to the interior supports of your walls. You cannot install them on your own, and they are difficult to acquire if you are not a contractor. You will have to find a contractor that has installed these panels before to ensure that they have the expertise to do the job right.Share
