Differences between new and old homes

Material selection of the new house: The biggest difference between the outer wall structure of the new house and the old house is that an extra layer of gypsum board is added to the outer wall of the new house, which is called Placoplatre BA13 in French and has a thickness of 13mm, hence the name. In Chinese, it is called a double-layer homogeneous compact wall. Excellent thermal insulation. One of the benefits is: warm in winter and cool in summer. And this design, another important purpose is to reduce energy consumption: heating, air conditioning...  This saves future landlords a considerable amount of money (water, electricity, heating, etc.). French policy makers should be applauded here. In the 21st century, in which development and environmental protection are competing, they are the benchmark of this era, regardless of the Kyoto Protocol or the national consensus.
