Pay attention to Izocam’s energy conservation advices in Energy Efficiency Week

The week of January 11th is celebrated as Energy Efficiency Week in 2016. Having embraced energy efficiency, on the occasion Energy Efficiency Week, Izocam would like to emphasize on some points.  Having provided 200 million TOE energy conservation and prevented 650 million tons of CO2 from being released to atmosphere for 50 years through its products, Izocam explains the importance of saving energy in daily life which potentially contributes to family and country economy. Izocam General Manager Nuri Bulut points out that minor precautions about energy conservation may contribute to current deficit.

Turkey imports most of its energy need.  In 2014, the amount paid for importing energy raw materials constituted approximately 23% of total import costs with 55 billion USD.  It is not wrong to say that energy imports at that level constitute the most important part of the foreign trade deficit. Celebrating Energy Efficiency week, Izocam General Manager Nuri Bulut states that energy efficiency and related applications are compulsory in order to reduce levels of current deficit and our foreign energy dependence. He says, “We should not waste resources such as natural gas and electricity, but we must use them effectively. We should be more careful for our energy-focused usages and actions in our lifestyle. We should consider recommendations about energy conservation, while thinking about what we can do for our living spaces through permanent and long-term solutions. Focusing on methods to make our homes and workplaces structurally more energy-efficient is very important…For example, we can pay attention to applying insulation and using energy-efficient heating and cooling devices in order to make buildings more energy-efficient."   

Stating that there are precautions we can take even when buildings are not made energy-efficient, Bulut adds that more energy conservation may be achieved by leaving space in front of radiators, using thermostatic radiator valves in addition to Izopan radiator back board. “For energy conservation, windows should be completely closed, temperature should be at the optimal value for each room and thermal leakage in radiator backs should be prevented. Izopan, a glass wool board, can be used as a holder and reflector behind thermal sources such as radiators, heaters and stoves,” he concludes.



Izocam also recommends taking the following precautions for energy conservation;

  • Thick insulation materials with high insulation values should be preferred in buildings and installations.
  • Roof, wall, floor insulations should be seamless.
  • In central heating systems, pipes should be insulated with Glass Wool Prefabricated Pipe, while valves with Valve Jacket.
  • If you are buying a house, always ask if it has proper insulation. Or, if possible, you can apply insulation to the building of your house or workplace. This will result in 50% reduction in your gas and electricity bills.
  • Since heated air rises and tries to escape through the roof, the roof section should be insulated first.
  • Windows and doors are responsible for 25% of thermal loss in your house. Double or triple glazed windows reduce thermal loss by half. Sealing in windows and doors are also important for thermal loss. You can use special sealing bands to prevent leaks.
  • You can use aluminium coated thermal insulation boards behind radiators.
  • You can turn down radiator valves instead of opening windows when room temperature gets high.
  • You can use thermostatic radiator valves on radiators. Thermostatic valve stops water circulation in radiator when the room temperature reaches a preset value and saves energy by preventing over-heating the room.
