Thermal insulation usually refers to the use of appropriate insulation materials and design adaptations for buildings to slow the transfer of heat through the enclosure to reduce heat loss or gain.
The transfer of heat is caused by the temperature difference between indoors and outdoors. Heat may be transferred either by conduction, convection, or radiation. The rate of transmission is closely related to the propagating medium.
Heat is lost or gained by transmission through the roof, ceilings, walls, floors, windows, and doors.
Jumbo Chem Kenya Ltd believes in a sustainable environment.
Due to the rapid decrease in energy resources resulting from increasing demand, current reserves for fossil fuel will not meet the demand in the long run. This imposes responsibility on us to use energy efficiently. One of the ways to achieve this is afficiently is through the use of – INSULATION on our roofs and for insulating hot water pipes. Thus, there is a need to prioritize the use of insulation as an important product for conserving energy thereby reducing energy use in buildings. (more…)
