Insulation saves energy
We all want to live and work in comfortably cool buildings. However, do we really need to use so much energy to run our air conditioners? We can use less energy if we insulate our buildings with stone wool to make them more energy efficient. Studies have shown that by using existing, well-proven energy efficiency technologies like insulation, 70 to 90 % of a building’s energy needed for heating or cooling can be cut.
Insulation can be used in every part of the building envelope including roof, ceiling, partition, external walls and ventilated facades. It is also well suited for industry to insulate pipes and boilers; and to reduce potential heat losses in technical installations of power plants, petro-chemical plants and other types of industrial buildings.

In many Asian countries, the legislation does not determine the minimum level of thermal insulation to be used in buildings. However, it is always better to use insulation in order to improve the energy performance of the building and save energy. With constantly rising energy prices, all building investors and house owners who are far-sighted and cost-conscious should ensure their buildings are effectively insulated.
