Improved thermal insulation, more energy savings!
Knauf Earthwool Ceiling Insulation Batts are pre-cut rectangular batts that are easy to use in roof insulation. They help improve thermal insulation and regulate indoor temperature. So, it’s warmer in winters and cooler in summers. This significantly reduces energy consumption, too.
What are Earthwool Ceiling Insulation Batts?
Earthwool is similar to glasswool. The Knauf Earthwool Ceiling Insulation is made from recycled glass and sand. To create the batts, a bio-based binder is used instead of chemical binders. No chemical dyes are used, too. The earthwool ceiling insulation batts thus created are sustainable and eco-friendly.
These insulation batts are non-combustible and hence are fire-resistant. Unlike glasswool insulation which causes discomfort and itchiness while handling, earthwool is a convenient insulation material. These earthwool ceiling insulation batts are soft and rarely cause any discomfort. If at all there is some irritation due to the fibres rubbing against the skin, a cold-water rinse can alleviate it.
Where to use Earthwool Ceiling Insulation Batts and why?
Earthwool Ceiling Insulation Batts are used for roof insulation. They can be used both in residential and commercial buildings. These ceiling insulation batts can be used both in new constructions and existing buildings.
In the absence of effective ceiling insulation, a significant amount of indoor cooling or heating escapes through the roof. This naturally results in energy wastage. Earthwool Ceiling insulation batts provide better thermal comfort and help save on energy bills, too.
About installing Earthwool Ceiling Insulation Batts
Earthwool Ceiling insulation batts can be installed in two ways – single layer and double layer.
Single-layer installations are more common even though sometimes using double-layer installation is preferred. In double-layer insulation, one more layer is added at 90° to the ceiling joists.
Double layer installation helps to secure any gaps left in the first layer of insulation. It also counters the effect of thermal bridging, i.e., the loss of insulation through the construction material in the ceiling.
What is “bulk insulation”?
When it comes to using Earthwool insulation batts, a commonly used term is “bulk insulation”. Knauf Earthwool Ceiling Insulation Batts are categorised as bulk insulation. This is because the high thermal resistance in this insulation material comes from the millions of tiny pockets of trapped air in the batts. These air pockets prevent the transfer of heat through conduction and convection providing a high level of thermal insulation.
What are the benefits of using Earthwool Ceiling Insulation Batts?
Below are the key benefits of using Earthwool Ceiling Insulation Batts.
1. Environment-friendly insulation
Knauf Earthwool Ceiling Insulation Batts are made from up to 80% recycled glass and sand. No nasty chemicals such as formaldehyde or phenol are used in these batts. Also, no dyes are used in these sustainable batts.
2. Ease of installation
The Earthwool Ceiling Insulation Batts are very soft to touch. They do not itch like glasswool insulation. These batts come pre-cut in rectangular shapes and are very easy to install. For DIY enthusiasts, installing these batts in the ceiling is quite easy.
3. Thermal insulation
The bulk insulation prevents heat transfer due to both conduction and convection. It stops the heat transfer from the ceiling resulting in improved overall thermal insulation. The heat loss during winters and the heat entering into the building during summers is prevented.
4. Fire resistance
Earthwool is non-combustible. The earthwool ceiling insulation batts are completely fire resistant as well as shock-proof.
Earthwool Ceiling Insulation Batts can last for years. They are corrosion resistant and moisture resistant. They also prevent microbial growth and rodent infestation.
6. Reduced energy bills
With superior thermal insulation, it reduces the energy consumption by indoor heating or cooling appliances thus saving significantly on energy bills.
