For moderate weather conditions, our standard insulation will be enough to feel well at home.
Concrete walls are a natural thermal mass, they absorb the heat during peak house and dispersing them slowly. Due to its density, concrete has the capacity to absorb and store large quantities of heat. This behavior delays the transfer of energy. In this way, thermal mass reduces peak heating and cooling loads by delaying the time at which these peak loads occur by several hours. This delay reduces demands on heating and cooling equipment.
Feel comfortable at home with our high thermal insulation system for external walls. It stabilizes the temperature even in extreme conditions. Our thermal insulation system consists of an outer layer of solid concrete, a middle layer of confined air and an inner layer of voided blocks wall.

Gas burner Vs Gas oil burner
If you do not want to build an mechanical room, you can opt to have a gas burner instead of a gas oil (mazout) burner.
A gas oil (mazout) burner needs a complete room to fit along with a gas oil tank. They will need yearly maintenance and proper fire prevention systems.
On the other hand, the gas burner, seen below, will fit on any wall behind the house, the gas canisters are swappable and can be placed hidden under it and it does not need yearly maintenance.
Connecting the gas boiler to the hot water tank leads to large benefits in mountain conditions.
First, the hot water tank will be available much faster when the boiler is turned on. Second, this solution leads to large cost savings over time since it is more efficient than heating the hot water tank using electricity.
