Harriniva is located in the middle of the most amazing nature in Muonio, Lapland. A night in Aurora Dome is a unique way to experience the nature. The Aurora Dome is a round igloo-shaped tent with husky and reindeer themed decoration and one transparent wall. The Domes are completely insulated and a fireplace with an open fire gives out both warmth and comforting ambiance. The entire north-facing section of the dome is sheathed in reinforced glass, all the better to catch the shimmering northern lights which, thanks to the region’s low light pollution, is best seen in early April. Attic insulation has become a necessity now days, especially bearing in mind that lofts are often transformed into dwelling, residential places where some basic living conditions must be fulfilled in order of enabling normal and enjoyable residence.  Insulation4US provides a central location for all the largest insulation distributors nationwide, meaning we can provide our customers with an unrivalled product selection. Insulation4US has over 600 shipping locations across the US and our team are experts in Residential, Commercial and Industrial insulation applications. One of the primary concerns is maintaining a constant temperature, that is preventing the cold air from penetrating in during the winter and hot air during the summer, which can only make your loft unbearable to stay in. The most common solution is proper insulation that can not only protect your loft from undesired external temperature effects, but also make a significant impact and contribute to the overall energy efficiency of your home. This is why there are some things you need to know when insulating your attic and we provide some of the answers right here. Before choosing and installing proper attic insulation, there are some things to consider and some precautions that must be taken into account. First off all, you must understand some potential problems that could occur in this type of insulation and some basic ways to prevent and overcome such problems. It is important to try to avoid thermal bypass that can occur at the eaves, then to avoid placing heavy objects on top that can crush air pockets between the fibers and reduce overall insulation effectiveness. Another great problem when insulating your attic is condensation, which could be avoided by proper ventilation across the roof, usually from eaves to eaves. Finally, it is very important to prevent air leakage from the rooms below, traveling through some ceiling penetrations (like wiring or light fixtures). Conventional insulation serves an important purpose, such as insulating mechanical components that do not require routine inspection. However, conventional insulation is not the best alternative when it comes to mechanical components that require routine maintenance. The removable and reusable insulation pad is the best alternative, providing maintenance professionals an easy way to remove and reinstall the insulation. However, if you have a room that is full of glass windows or has cathedral ceilings, you’ll need to either put in wider roofing studs that will accommodate the thickness of batt insulation you’ll need to come up to building code, or you’ll need to choose another insulation option that will give you the same R value of the smaller roofing stud. This is particularly important in homes with cathedral ceilings and Cape Cod style homes where there is a sloped ceiling on the second floor.
