Insulation is a great way to improve the energy efficiency in your home or office. Insulation not only keeps your house warm in winter and cool in summer; it also helps in minimizing your carbon footprint, which is great news for the environment and your electricity bill!
Thermal Insulation reduces heat transfer through the building materials of your home, i.e. ceiling, walls & floor. Thermal insulation reduces heat gain in Summer and heat loss in Winter. The laws of nature force heat to travel from a warm atmosphere to a cold one. This process is called heat transfer, and there are 3 forms of heat transfer – Conduction, Convection and Radiation.
Reflective foil and vapour barrier insulation acts as a second defence against rain, wind, dust and moisture. Reflective foil is particularly effective against radiant heat. Most of these products are also flame retardant.
There are different types of insulation with different uses:
- Thermal Insulation aids in warming/cooling a building by reducing the rate of heat transfer.
- Acoustic Insulation improves comfort by reducing noise transfer between walls, floors, and ceilings.
- Reflective Foil and Vapour Barrier Insulation acts as a second defence to protect your home or office from rain, dust, wind and moisture.
The above insulation products can also work together to give your home maximum energy efficiency. Our friendly team can advise you on the type of insulation that is suitable for your home, office or factory.
