There is a big problem of heat loss in private houses. Heat can escape through window and door openings, gaps in the floor, walls and ceiling. And if a country house has several floors, then the heat will be lost even more, and it will leave mainly through the roof. To do this, you need to carry out construction work to insulate all ceilings with mineral wool.
For high-quality insulation of the roof, various heaters are used.
Mineral wool is widely used in insulation. Below we will consider what this material is.
Mineral wool is a natural insulation. The base of the mineral wool consists of basalt, glass broken, mixed with quartz sand. In production, boards are formed from cotton fibers, which subsequently harden.
Mineral wool bars are similar in properties to stone.
To insulate the ceiling with mineral wool with your own hands, you need to select high-quality material.
There are several types of mineral wool in the world:
What layer of mineral wool is needed to insulate the ceiling?
Silk mineral wool is the most budgetary. The structure glass wool contains very small glass needles, so it is not used very often.
Basalt mineral wool is used most often. This material is optimal for ceiling insulation in a country house.
Insulation of natural origin has different densities. Between the ceiling slabs it is recommended to lay mineral wool, dense in structure.
In a country house it will be warm with the correct insulation thickness.
The thickness of the mineral wool for insulating the ceiling will be exactly 25 cm.
The mineral wool can be purchased in rolls or slabs. For high-quality insulation of the ceiling from the side of the attic with mineral wool, it is better to use rolls. In this type, the mineral wool is more convenient to lay.
When purchasing insulating building material by thickness, do not forget about density.
The comfortable temperature in the room after insulation will depend on the initial thickness of the mineral wool when insulating the ceiling.
Ceilings in the house can be insulated both outside and inside. Below we will consider the insulation of the ceiling with mineral wool from the inside. This room needs to be insulated from all sides. Because, as a rule, all the heat goes through the ceiling.
Stages of preparation for warming the attic:
With proper insulation of the ceiling in the house with mineral wool, the attic will become an additional room that can be used in winter. The attic is rebuilt into a study, a creative workshop or a rest room.
Protect from drafts not only private houses, but also all residential buildings.
With the help of mineral wool, you can insulate the attic ceiling and perform high-quality bath insulation.
You always want to visit the bathhouse in winter. Therefore, it is necessary to perform high-quality thermal insulation of this room.
Below we will consider in more detail how to insulate the ceiling of a bath with mineral wool.
A brick bath is insulated as follows:
The layer of mineral wool must be made twice as thick as the walls.
Different heaters have its disadvantages and advantages. Minvata is no exception.
The advantages include:
When fixing mineral wool on the ceiling, it is worth remembering the disadvantages of this insulation material:
When insulating the ceiling, you need to know the clear safety rules for working with insulation.
All construction work on the insulation of a country house must be safe. Minvata does not emit substances harmful to health.
Glass wool particles can get into clothing when applied. Also, mineral wool particles can penetrate the eyes and lungs.
Therefore, it is necessary to work with mineral wool in special protective clothing.
Plates of mineral wool with high density are placed on the first layer. This will create a smoother surface. A special insulating material is attached on top of the mineral wool. And this will protect the insulation from moisture.
If you follow all the above recommendations, you will be able to do all the installation work with your own hands. Well-executed insulation will make your home warm and comfortable even in cold winter seasons.
