VLOG: Choosing the right Insulation

Insulation is material designed to prevent heat from being transmitted from one area to another.

It’s normally used to keep heat in or out of your home. Insulation can work in a number of different ways, but it most commonly incorporates materials that consist of millions of tiny pockets of air. Still air is an extremely good insulator, and trapped pockets of air are what give most types of insulation their high thermal resistance.

There are a number of choices when it comes to selecting insulation for your home. Choosing the right option will depend as much on your location and situation as it will on your budget, the temperature where you live and whether or not you’re building a new or renovating your residence.

A cold home in winter will need extra heating. Likewise, a sweltering home in summer will mean you’re far more likely to use the air conditioner.

Regardless of how efficient your heating or cooling system is, without the correct insulation you are going to have to use it more often resulting in a higher energy consumption.

Good insulation is designed to regulate the temperature of your home, reducing your need for artificial heating and cooling, therefore saving you money and reducing your carbon footprint.

It makes good sense to ensure your home’s well insulated. The energy savings will easily repay the cost of your insulation in the long term.

Selecting the right insulation for your home is essential to achieve the right results, whether you need a bulk insulation, a reflective insulation or a combination of both.

The right insulation will;

-Increase the thermal comfort of your home

-Provide cost savings as the need for energy is reduced

-Improve the energy efficiency your home, and;

-control condensation under your metal roofing.
