MARCOTHERM Thermal insulation coating system
The energy used in residential building industry for heating residential and other buildings makes up about 30% of the total of the national energy consumption, a huge waste of resources world-wide and one of the main causes of the greenhouse effect and the global warming.
Most of the residential buildings and the existing non-renovated buildings waste a lot of energy every day, raising energy bills.

WHAT IS THE MARCOTHERM INSULATION SYSTEM?
“Thermal insulation system“, often referred to as ETICS, means the cladding of external walls of a building using insulation panels of a variety of nature which, due to their low thermal conductivity, greatly enhance insulation , guaranteeing a better living comfort and lowering energy costs for heating and cooling.
WHY HAVE A MARCOTHERM THERMAL INSULATION SYSTEM INSTALLED?
Colorificio San Marco proposes the Marcotherm insulation system for both new and existing buildings.
When renovating buildings, the Marcotherm system is the best solution for restoring exterior surfaces and obtaining the benefits of thermal insulation.
- Consuming less energy and reducing bills for heating and conditioning.
- Increase the internal comfort of your homes and the well-being of those living in them.
- Contribute to reducting energy consumption from fossil fuels.
- Contribute to reducing pollutant emissions per inhabitant.
- Optimizing your property is a sound financial investment.
The Marcotherm system bring an immediate aesthetic improvement of the exterior walls matched with remarkable energy savings.
Regarding the overall energy consumption used to heat/cool a building, the Marcotherm System brings savings of from 20% to 40% starting from year one.
Thus, year after year, you will save on heating costs while creating a perfect living comfort.
THE MARCOTHERM SYSTEM IN DETAIL
WITH THE MARCOTHERM SYSTEM, YOU START SAVING MONEY FROM DAY ONE
Reducing energy consumptions by 20-40% is a reality, with cost savings easy to imagine both in winter and summer. The benefits of the Marcotherm system are measurable both in winter and summer: in winter, the interior walls accumulate heat and release it gradually, ensuring a constant temperature in the environments; in summer, by using light colors, overheating of the exterior walls is reduced thus avoiding internal heat from building up, thereby reducing the need to use air conditioning.
SAVING ON HEATING COSTS TO THE BENEFIT OF THE ENVIRONMENT
Thanks to the increased energy efficiency of the building, it is possible to reduce bills and actively contribute to the reduction of emissions of harmful substances into the atmosphere, including carbon dioxide CO2, thus contributing to the quality of the environment.
IMPROVING COMFORT AND WELL-BEING AT HOME
A comfortable living environment improves the sensation of well-being and quality of life. Thermal comfort, or the sensation of comfort in an inhabited environment, derives not only from air temperature, but also from that of the walls. If walls are cold, users tend to raise the air temperature to increase comfort, but in so doing consume more energy. A wall with the Marcotherm system protects against both heat and cold, improving living comfort.
BIGGER LIVING SPACE
Wall insulation often results in increased wall thickness.
By covering the building on the outside, the Marcotherm insulation system lets you keep the same precious interior living space, despite increasing the external volume of new buildings.
This increase is allowed, according to the provisions of Article 11, sub-paragraphs 1 and 2 of European Directive 2006/32/EC and with authorization (without charges), by the regional laws in force in many italian regions. However, there is still a constraint with respect to the minimum distances from the neighbouring buildings, a problem that rarely arises because of the limited increase in thickness determined by this type of cladding.
The decision to fit the Marcotherm insulation system in also large residential buildings requires a simple resolution from the condominium residents’ committee.
The installation of the Marcotherm System on residential buildings allows a further advantage which is a greater and better uniformity of temperature among the different floors of the building.
REMOVING THE EXTERNAL PLASTER
The Marcotherm insulation system allows both new and existing buildings to be insulated from the outside. It can be applied directly onto the masonry or concrete without applying external plaster, and thus reducing costs and timescales.
TOTAL ELIMINATION OF HAIRLINE CRACKS
The building is protected against thermal excursions by extending the integrity of its materials.
Interstructural movements between various building elements are reduced, thus avoiding the formation of small and larger cracks, and therefore infiltrations, and obtaining a longer-lasting aesthetic effect on the outer walls.
ELIMINATION OF MOLD AND CONDENSATION BUILD-UP
By insulating the building externally with the Marcotherm insulation system we eliminate the thermal bridges, which are critical points of the structure, where heat dissipations occure that are the main causes of internal surface condensation and the molds which are detrimental for the building and especially the residents’ health.
INCREASE IN THE PROPERTY VALUE
In compliance with the requirements set out in the energy performance standards in force, the building gains countless benefits, including a not-insignificant increase in market value.
