Attic insulation with glass wool on the french riviera
Qualifications & Certifications
Insulate your home with mineral wool:
Every year, residential homes produce 100 million tonnes of CO2 . This alarming and constantly rising figure makes home heating the second largest source of greenhouse gas emissions after transport, and ahead of industry!
An environmentally-friendly approach. Mineral wool is a material produced mainly from sand and designed to last.
The environmental benefits of glass wool
Glass wool is a natural material made from sand and recycled glass, making it an environmentally-friendly solution for insulating your home. Unlike other insulation materials, the production of glass wool consumes less energy than that required to manufacture, transport and dispose of it.
What’s more, a complete life-cycle analysis of mineral wools has shown that they perfectly meet the requirements of a High Environmental Quality (HEQ®) project. By opting for glass wool insulation, you’re actively helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while creating a healthier, more sustainable environment.

The exceptional thermal performance of glass wool
One of the main advantages of glass wool is its exceptional thermal performance. Thanks to its fibrous structure, glass wool creates an effective barrier against heat loss and air infiltration, helping to maintain a pleasant, constant indoor temperature.
By insulating your attic with glass wool, you reduce your home’s heating requirements, which translates into significant energy savings and lower heating bills. What’s more, glass wool also improves acoustic comfort by reducing the transmission of noise through the walls, giving you a calm, peaceful indoor environment.
The durability of glass wool
Glass wool is built to last. Thanks to its compressive strength and dimensional stability, it retains its insulating properties over the long term. This means that the glass wool insulation you install in your attic will remain effective for many years, without the need for frequent replacement.
By choosing glass wool, you’re making a lasting investment that will enable you to enjoy the benefits of thermal and acoustic insulation for the lifetime of your home.
Integrated vapour barrier for extra protection
When you opt for glass wool with vapour barrier, you benefit from extra protection against moisture problems. The vapour barrier built into the insulation prevents condensation from forming inside your attic, reducing the risk of mould and structural deterioration.
By acting as a moisture barrier, the vapour barrier helps maintain a dry, healthy environment, preserving indoor air quality and the durability of your insulation.
Flexible installation tailored to your needs
Glass wool is available in different shapes and sizes, making it suitable for a variety of installation methods. Whether unwinding rolls of insulation or blowing flakes into hard-to-reach spaces, glass wool adapts easily to the specific features of your attic. What’s more, its flexibility allows you to bypass obstacles such as beams or cables, ensuring uniform coverage with no thermal bridges.
A cost-effective solution
In addition to its many environmental benefits and outstanding thermal performance, glass wool is also an economical solution for insulating your attic. Its affordable initial cost makes it an attractive choice for budget-conscious homeowners.
What’s more, the energy savings achieved through better insulation can help you quickly recoup your initial investment. By reducing your heating costs and improving your home’s energy efficiency, glass wool saves you money in the long term.
At Pamther, we’re delighted to bring you the latest news on MaPrimeRénov’ and energy renovation grants. From February 1, 2023, the ceilings for work eligible for MaPrimeRénov’ have been revised upwards to take account of rising prices. This change is the result of the Finance Act for 2023 and the Decree of December 29, 2022, which have increased the budget allocated to this scheme.
MaPrimeRénov’ is a scheme that has replaced the CITE (tax credit for energy transition) since 2021. It offers financial assistance to homeowners wishing to carry out energy renovation work on their main residence. This assistance is available to all households, whatever their income level, whether they are owner-occupiers, lessors or co-owners. The amount of the grant varies according to the household’s resources and the nature of the work. The aim of this scheme is to encourage households, particularly those of modest means, to renovate their homes in an eco-responsible way, by promoting work aimed at improving energy performance.
In 2023, the emphasis is on the most efficient renovations and support for low-income households. Resource ceilings have been updated to January 1, 2023. You can consult these ceilings on the MaPrimeRénov’ information sheet.
From February 1, 2023, several major changes will take effect.
The maximum amount of work eligible for this grant has been raised from €30,000 to €35,000. Ma Prime Rénov Sérénité is aimed at owner-occupiers on modest or very modest incomes who are planning to carry out renovation work that will deliver energy savings of at least 35%.
This bonus is used to finance comprehensive energy renovation work (with an energy gain of at least 35%) on the common areas of condominiums. The ceilings have also been raised, from €15,000 to €25,000. In addition, the additional individual bonuses paid to households residing in the condominium are doubled, reaching €3,000 for very low-income owners and €1,500 for low-income owners.
To encourage the French to carry out comprehensive renovations, the “global renovation” packages have been revised upwards for households with intermediate and superior resources. These packages have been increased from €7,000 to €10,000 for households with intermediate resources (purple), and from €3,500 to €5,000 for households with higher resources.
