Lately always appear different messages about thermal insulation and in particular the insulation in the media. Statements such as… Insulation is not as effective as always maintained.... a house must also be able to breathe .... Styropor on the wall is an ecological disaster...you can read. The event was co-organized with the platform "innovative building" and gave the opportunity to replace prejudice by facts about insulation. Products and systems have been introduced and compared objectively. In addition to the prices, also the ecological evaluation of building materials was compared.
