General guidelines for the use of thermal insulation in a home.

Since we live in hot environments, the design of buildings has an important role in reducing the temperature inside, and this has a direct impact on reducing the consumption of electrical appliances. This can be done through adaptation and lighting, reducing the size of the appliance, or by reducing the size of the building itself. The design of the building must take into account the natural conditions in which it will be situated, as well as the use of natural lighting and ventilation. We discuss several different ways that can help improve the climate inside a building under design.

It is important to store heat-insulating materials in a dry place, and to avoid exposing them to sunlight for a long period of time. If these materials are crushed or punctured, they may not insulate as effectively.

When insulating the ceiling, it is important to take into account the barrier between the waterproofing and the heat insulator, and between the heat insulator and the slag.

Protecting heat insulators and not exposing them to damage during transportation, storage or installation.

Install heat insulators without leaving spaces between them exceeding half a centimeter

If the roof of the building is above the borrowed roof of the type of metal mesh bridges, a ventilation must be provided for the space between the two roofs (the borrowed and the lattice).

In buildings that use metal plates in their construction or plating, such as warehouses and cooling rooms, the use of heat-resistant insulators must be taken into account, with a resistance to scattering, flame retardancy, or fire retardant.

All surfaces of the material shall be free of dust, abrasions or grease prior to application.

Thermal insulation works must be carried out under the supervision of a specialized engineer

When you start building a house or facility, you can use one of the approved engineering consultancy offices to ensure the application of the requirements for rationalizing electricity consumption in the Saudi building code
