Understanding Energy Efficiency in Old Buildings – It’s Really Simple

ImageIn the winter, the longer we keep heat inside, the less often heat is required. The less heat used, the more money we save. In the summer the opposite occurs; we want to keep cool conditioned air inside and hot air outside. From an environmental perspective, the less energy we use, the less pollution we generate.

In the winter, without insulation, old buildings lose approximately seven times the heat they generate every hour. Utilizing an adequate thickness of high tech Quik-Therm insulation in an old building will reduce its heat loss by more than 50%, or about three heat changes per hour.

Retrofitting old buildings with Quik-Therm insulation saves heating and cooling energy; it saves money and significantly reduces ozone depleting carbon emissions – by 50% or more. It’s that simple.
