We all try to maintain winter comfort by improving the insulation of windows and doors or by improving heating systems to optimize energy expenditure. But, had it occurred to you that you can also fight the cold and lower the gas or electric bill using thermal insulating paint?.
The truth is that it had not occurred to me until a few days ago I read an article about this type of painting manufactured by the Arelux company in a Zaragoza newspaper and with which you can save between 20 and 40% energy, according to this Aragonese company after conducting an essay with the University of Zaragoza and the Cidemco laboratory.
The painting, which they have dubbed "Imperlux Termic", is a painting that is used for thermal insulation of the house, business or industrial facilities that is provided with ceramic microspheres, by way of microscopic hollow marbles, which they form a layer of air in the paint itself to insulate from the cold of winter or the heat of summer and that also has properties to prevent condensation and thus prevent the appearance of moisture and mold.
The basis of this painting is a ecological white water paint with the addition of ceramic microspheres, which allows painting over as many times as necessary and that stays for a lifetime on the walls or on the roof of your home, causing changes of up to 3.5 ° C in room temperature, always and when there are no problems of external insulation such as poorly insulated windows. A fantastic idea to improve the insulation of our homes, right?
