An Energy-Saving, Ecological Glass Box Above the Landscape

An Energy-Saving, Ecological Glass Box Above the Landscape | Home Insulation Ideas | Scoop.it

Amsterdam firm Paul de Ruiter Architects designed a home to provide a comfortable environment all year round while minimising its energy use and impact on a site in a protected ecological area.

In order to build on the site, which is a habitat for many plants and animals, the owners were required to return what had previously been farmland to its original pre-agricultural state. They planted 71,000 young trees that will eventually obscure the house from view and added a rectangular pond above the underground storey.

Energy-saving techniques employed in the building include a fabric screen built into the insulated glazed facade that can be rolled down to reflect the sun, and create a void between the glass and the screen through which ventilation flows. Wood from the private forest will be burned to heat water for the house once the trees have matured, while photovoltaic cells on the roof and a planned windmill will generate electricity.

How To Pick The Right Insulation For Your Pole Barn or Metal Building

Choosing the right insulation for your new or existing building is something that can save you a great deal of money. With so many alternatives available, it's important to know the benefits of each type of insulation as well as the cost of insulation. Foam insulation offers several options including open cell and closed cell spray foam. And there's also the understanding of how and where the insulation material should be applied. This video explains many of the options that are available. It's also critical to select a qualified insulation contractor, whether it be for a home insulation or commercial project. http://insulationtoledo.com/spray-foam-insulation/

Spray Foam Insulation Toledo Applying Closed Cell Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation can be divided into two different types: Open cell foam and closed cell foam. In Open Cell, the individual "cells" that make up the insulating material are not close together, so the foam insulation is not as dense and more porous than closed cell foam. Closed cell is, in fact, much denser and is a firmer material. Both serve as a vapor barrier (with close cell foam being a better barrier material). Also, closed cell foam is an excellent water barrier as well. Because of this trait, closed cell foam is often used in roofing projects and other exterior projects. Closed cell foam insulation is stronger and firmer than open cell, so it actually adds to the structural strength of the project as well. It's also more expensive than open cell because more chemicals are used in its production. Find out more about our insulation services at: http://insulationtoledo.com/spray-foam-insulation/

Basement Insulation — Part 1

Basement Insulation — Part 1 | Home Insulation Ideas | Scoop.it
A common truism (that isn't) is “heat rises.” Actually, what rises is air that is warmer than the surrounding air. Anyone who has lived with a wood stove knows this — it's a lot hotter at the ceiling in the room with the stove than it is at the floor.
Insulation Toledo's insight:

Basement and crawl space insulation are important areas to have protected. Check out this in-depth article about insulating your crawl or basement. Question about a project, just give us a call.

Insulation Toledo's insight:

How to pick the right insulation for a pole barn or a metal building is very different than for a home. The structures are contructed differently so a commercial building in this sense is quite different not only in terms of design but also types of insulation that would be best.
