Swiss Renovation GmbH

Poorly insulated houses consume a lot of heating energy.

Swiss Renovation GmbH is a certified specialist company and offers you security through the highest quality standards. We only use high-quality and innovative insulation systems.

It makes a significant contribution to effectively reducing energy consumption in the long term.

Insulation is about reducing heat loss through the building components.
This increases indoor comfort and protects the environment. Insulating the house is often a cost-intensive but usually very effective measure. Insulation is an essential element in the thermal insulation of buildings.

The different areas where insulation can be used sensibly are:

  • Roof
  • top storey ceiling
  • Basement ceiling
  • Cellar walls
  • Base plate
  • Facade

The variety of insulation materials on offer is considerable. From polystyrene , mineral wool to natural insulation materials, there is a suitable insulation material for almost every insulation task in the house.

Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions

Insulation refers to two different areas of construction.

On the one hand, we talk about insulation when it comes to sealing a building so that no moisture can penetrate, and on the other hand about thermal insulation, which reduces the heat loss through the envelope of a building and thus the energy requirement.

Insulation merely reduces the passage, whereas insulation completely seals it off. For example, power cables are insulated so that you not only get a reduced electric shock, but preferably none at all.

  • Rigid polystyrene foam (EPS): Better known as “Styropor”, EPS is most commonly used for façade insulation. It is inexpensive, very easy to process and has excellent insulating properties.

  • Mineral wool:

    The second most common material for façade insulation is mineral wool. It can also be used to insulate a house effectively. With the addition of impregnating oils and synthetic resins, stone or glass wool fibers are melted into boards at high temperatures.

  • Ecological insulation materials:

    Some building owners and modernizers are also interested in insulation materials made from renewable raw materials such as wood fibre, cork or hemp. In terms of price and insulating effect, these insulating materials do not yet quite come up to the standard materials, so thicker insulation layers may be necessary for comparable results

  • Calcium silicate – no mold problem and good indoor climate

  • Mineral wool glass wool – very light material

  • Mineral wool Rock wool – Environmentally friendly insulation

  • Polyurethane rigid foam panels PUR – Resistant to humidity

  • Polystyrene rigid foam (XPS)- Styrofoam with high pressure stability

  • Rigid polystyrene foam – Styrofoam

  • Vacuum – very low insulation thickness

  • Hemp – healthy and organic

  • Flax – Sustainable

A heat temperature occurs between bodies with a higher and lower temperature. Thermal insulation helps to reduce the passage of heat through these bodies.

Poorly insulated buildings give off a large proportion of their thermal energy to the outside world. This is why thermal insulation is used to try and reduce consumers’ energy costs.

  • Wood fiber is well suited for roof insulation, as it is also perfect for sound insulation.
  • Foam glass is one of the very robust insulation variants and can also be used for demanding insulation work due to its properties

Let’s move on to the different insulation materials:

  • Cellulose suitable as insulation between rafters for roof insulation, interior wall insulation – anywhere where there is no water.
  • Mineral fiber insulation materials are suitable for insulating pitched roofs, as flat roof battens, partition wall insulation or technical insulation. Thanks to various manufacturing processes, the insulating material can be used for almost all parts of the building.
  • Calcium silicate insulation is used for mold remediation and interior insulation

When modernizing the building envelope, people now rely on multi-layer thermal insulation.

Which insulation system is suitable for your house depends on the desired façade design, the age and condition of the exterior walls and the thickness of the insulation material.

  • Insulating the exterior wall is the best choice for most buildings.

  • Approximately 35 percent of the heating energy in old buildings is lost through the exterior walls.

  • If the exterior walls are insulated, up to 19 percent of heating energy can be saved.

With thermal insulation on the exterior wall, additional insulation panels are attached to the exterior wall of a building. This prevents thermal bridges. These transfer the heat from connections in the interior wall to the outside air.

With internal insulation, the insulation material is applied to the inside of the wall.

While only the wall itself is covered for external insulation, both the walls and the floor and ceiling should be insulated for complete insulation in the interior.

Thermal insulation prevents costly heat from being dissipated via building components or materials.

In winter, they give off valuable heat to the outer shell. In summer, the heat builds up in the interior. Good insulation in the roof and exterior and interior walls ensures a pleasant indoor climate.

Façade insulation is an effective measure to protect the building fabric.

Another reason to insulate is environmental and climate protection. By insulating the exterior walls, the heat transfer of the wall and thus the heat loss to the outside is reduced. The wall surfaces inside remain warmer, the living climate is more comfortable in summer and winter, and heating costs are reduced.

An uninsulated pipe results in considerable energy costs, which can rise uncontrollably.
Since Swiss Renovation is strongly committed to climate change and global warming, pipe insulation plays a major role in reducing CO2 emissions, raw material consumption and energy costs for our customers.
Swiss Renovation makes sure that the piping is sealed in the event of suspected material defects to prevent increased moisture damage.

Fire protection insulation with Swiss Renovation:

In the event of a house fire, the fire and the insulation material can spread rapidly across the entire façade.

But how does this really work if the building is insulated with polystyrene?

Swiss Renovation
can assure you that the materials used undergo various quality tests and are fire-safe with professional planning and execution. The polystyrene used for the insulation is flame-retardant with special additives, as the material is treated with a flame retardant.

Facade cladding with Swiss Renovtion GmbH

The façade cladding is the outer shell that surrounds the building.

Façade cladding offers a wide range of design options, and the underlying masonry does not need to be altered. If the façade of a house is to be clad, there are various items to choose from on the specialist market, such as clinker bricks, brick slips, plastic, wood and render.

Stylish and individual façade cladding from the specialist:

A stylish façade not only makes the house an ornament, but also serves to increase and maintain the value of a building, as well as providing insulation. At the same time, a clad house facade effectively protects against mold, the masonry is protected from external influences and ensures that the temperature inside the house is consistently pleasant all year round.

We only use first-class building materials from renowned manufacturers for your façade.
Swiss Renovation GmbH
is your competent partner for façade cladding. We provide you with comprehensive advice and all the information you need.

The main reason why most house residents opt for an energy-efficient refurbishment is to save on heating costs. However, thermal insulation provides warmer walls and helps to improve the indoor climate.

Thermal insulation is the prevention of room air temperature. It is used to reduce the passage of thermal energy through a envelope and prevents cooling by reducing the surface temperature. Insulation improves the indoor climate and protects the environment.
