To optimize the thermal insulation in your apartment, we can use internal insulation. In this regard, we illustrate how to insulate an internal wall, following our directions.
How to insulate an internal wall, when to proceed
In case of humidity, in the absence of adequate heating or if the corresponding external wall is subject to continuous bad weather, it is advisable to intervene with the insulation of the internal walls
How to insulate an internal wall, useful recommendations
- It should be noted that the insulation of the internal walls may not be sufficient to limit the high humidity of the environment! In this case it will be necessary to insulate not only the perimeter wall but also the ceiling and the floor: it consists in applying panels, wedges and plasters in insulating material in order to stop the deterioration of the wall itself at the thermal bridges.
- Another recommendation is to insulate the walls with great care, using good quality thermal insulating materials to be applied directly to the wall, taking care not to leave gaps between the two elements.
- The internal insulation must be airtight to avoid structural damage
- In insulated environments where the humidity is still very high, it is advisable to place the furniture at least 5 cm away from the walls.
- How to insulate an internal wall, the advantages
- Savings on heating
- Improvement of living comfort
- Elimination of mold and humidity problems
How to insulate an internal wall plasterboard
For insulate an internal wall we can resort to the use of plasterboard sheets pre-coupled with sintered expanded polystyrene panels of at least 3 cm thick to be applied with glue: it is applied quickly and economically: just place the sheets on the wall with the specific glue using a notched trowel .
- Before proceeding, scrape and brush the wall with an anti-mold product then let it dry for at least a week.
- As you proceed, make sure the wall is smooth, clean, dry, and can hold the load.
The only disadvantage in plasterboard insulation is the impossibility of hanging objects on the walls.
As an alternative to plasterboard there are different solutions: it is possible, for example, to insulate the walls with “wooden beads”: these are pre-shaped boards to which slabs of insulating material such as cork can be coupled.
ATTENTION: the internal insulation of a building is less effective than the external one and should only be used where it is not possible to intervene on the outside.
