The article discusses the results of thermal imaging monitoring of building structures with and without insulation. Research and thermal and physical calculations showed that heat loss from the premises is determined by two groups of factors: surface loss depending on thermal conductivity, as well as vapor and air permeability of enclosing elements and heat loss at all types of joints, fasteners, etc. Thermal insulation with plate materials significantly reduces heat losses, but at the same time, heat flows through the joints between the heat-insulating plates and in the areas of their contact with other structures, necessitating the use of steam and waterproof windproof roll materials. The usage of elastic and thermoplastic materials in the insulation circuit allows minimizing heat loss at the joints between the heat-insulating elements and along the smooth surface of the wall due to the low air and vapor permeability of the material. In the systems of frame cottages, when used as a thermal insulation of rolled foam-polyethylene, it becomes possible to form a seamless insulating shell of a building. This is made possible by connecting individual sheets of polyethylene foam into a lock, followed by hot air welding. Seamless insulation systems are used both in the construction of cottages and in the construction of frame and frameless logistic facilities and housing and communal services.
