Critical threshold for breathing nature during pandemic: building insulation

Glad news that nature has been renewed during the pandemic has lost its impact with the research of the World Meteorological Organization. 2020 was one of the 3 hottest years recorded in the last 10 years. As the global climate crisis is in full swing, fundamental solutions such as insulation to reduce carbon emissions have come back on the agenda. Eryap Group CEO Emrullah Eruslu, who evaluated the table in Turkey, explained that 80% of the existing building stock in our country is uninsulated and said, "We spend our energy to heat the atmosphere, not the inside of our homes.”

İSTANBUL (TR) - The coronavirus epidemic, which has been fought hard all over the world since the first months of 2020, has started a process of renewal for nature, especially under the influence of social isolation, despite the many negatives it has brought with it. Worldwide research has shown that greenhouse gases have fallen during 2020, land and Air Transport has halved, and the rate of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere due to fossil fuel use has decreased by 2.4 billion tons. But a recent study by the World Meteorological Organization found that there is no positive picture in the name of the global climate crisis as steps of normalization gather pace, and 2020 is one of the 3 hottest years recorded in the last 10 years. 

Eryap Group CEO Emrullah Eruslu noted that Turkey's insulation report card is weak and said: “Unfortunately, 80% of the existing building stock in our country is not insulated. In order to ensure that nature's breathing during the pandemic period is permanent, it is necessary to use intelligent thermal insulation systems, especially in buildings that surround us in cities. Even zero-energy yesilites should be preferred wherever possible. There is a need to spread sustainability awareness around the world, where we will minimize the consumption of natural resources,” he said. 

2023 target 10 million heat-insulated housing, 7% energy savings

Emrullah Eruslu, who stated that a serious energy saving will be achieved by increasing Insulated Structures, said: “We take care to buy energy-efficient products in all areas of life, from fixtures to toilets, white goods to household appliances. More of the energy we get from these savings products is flying away from the exterior of our homes, which do not have thermal insulation. Reports prepared by IZODER show that only 20% of the building stock in our country complies with thermal insulation legislation. In other words, we waste our energy to warm the atmosphere, not the inside of our homes. If 10 million heat-insulated homes are implemented, which are among the 2023 targets, we will be able to save about 7% of energy,” he said.  

It is necessary to use thick insulation materials to get effective results

In the field of insulation systems for the purpose of contributing to Turkey's sustainable development intensive R & D activities as a result of these studies conduct and insulation materials used for identifying eruslu attention to important issues, “the savings in the thickness of selected insulation applications has an impact on the performance of the product product type. Insulation to be made with the right thickness insulation materials to be selected in accordance with climatic conditions offers much more savings. Insulation materials, which are usually chosen in thinner thicknesses to reduce the initial cost, reduce the savings that will be seen going forward, causing the cost to actually be much larger. In the developed world countries where we are in the same climate zone, 15-20 cm thick insulation materials are used, while in our country, these thicknesses remain between 3-5 cm on average. This, in turn, is a major blow to our country's economy, which is dependent on energy. The most effective method to reduce energy consumption, protect natural resources and ensure energy efficiency is to choose thicker insulation materials,” he warned.
