We just acquired a house in the region of Aix en Provence: a house built in 1970.

We plan to install double glazing and isolate high above the ceiling (concrete ceiling).

Regarding walls, after a small hole to see, it shows the following structure (from outside to inside):
- 200mm concrete block
- glass wool
approximately 40mm - red brick (1 socket) 40mm
- plaster coating.

Early we wanted to go into the insulation of walls, because we thought there was nothing at all, cons after this review it is still has a bit of insulation + brick.

Do you think this will be enough insulation? Or should we engage in additional work?
Knowing that the room's are small (total area 57m ²) and in a region that is mild?

THANKS in advance

idea in your house is normally isolated.

now the question..

since the 70's lived your insulation, there is a risk that either collapsed with the time and it no longer mounts up to your ceiling!
there is a possibility that pests have come to use too.

and let's not forget that since 40 has the glass wool has made great progress in isolation

your insulation has been made there since 40 has
she lived
your insulation so you do not apply insulation today!
