Insulation acts as a thermal/sound protective barrier where ever it is installed in your home. Whether this be in your roof, ceiling, walls, underfloor or even your garage door. In many homes, ceiling insulation is the most practical and cost-effective way to make a house more energy efficient. Plus, it can save you up to 40% on your energy bills.
Insulation works wonders at shielding our homes from winter’s frosty bite by keeping the warmth in, but did you know it’s just as effective against the scorching heat of summer? When it comes to battling the elements, insulation is a major tool in your arsenal, keeping your home comfortable when the outdoors is anything but.
Good quality insulation helps your home retain an even temperature, working as a barrier against the heat of summer as well as sealing it against winter chills. Think of it as being like a bubble around your home, keeping you comfortable within, even when the mercury rises.
In the context of home insulation, the thermal RESISTANCE rating, also known as the R-value is a measure of the insulation batts resistance to heat flow. The greater the R-value, the greater the resistance to heat, which in turn means a higher effectiveness of the thermal insulation.
Having a high R-value will not only keep you warmer in winter but cooler in summer. Overtime it will too provide you with monumental savings on your energy bills as indoor temperatures will be retained for much longer periods of time.
If you’re a building a new home, the minimum R-values will be included in the energy report and installing the minimum R-value will grant your house a Certificate of Compliance (COC). If you are currently in an existing home with no thermal insulation in the ceiling, installing any type of R-value will concurrently increase the amount of heat being retained in your house, significantly.
