Insulation Tips

When your whole home is insulated, it maintains its temperature much more effectively and efficiently, saving you money while keeping you comfortable.  It helps to keep the external heat away during summers and vice versa during the winters. Home insulation are basically of two different types; reflective insulation material and bulk insulation material.

Choice of insulating material depends on considerations such as –  Cost of insulating material, Area to be covered for insulation, Standard of insulation to be required,  Cost of energy consumed for heating and cooling, Reasonable fire proof, Non-absorbent of moisture, Not liable to undergo deformation, Resistant to attack of small insects.

Roof Insulation is one of the key methods of keeping one’s house at optimum temperature. It helps to keep the external heat away during summers and vice versa during the winters. Proper installation is the key for any effective insulation system. Reflective insulation can be applied either over the surface or under the roof leaving of airspace between the rood decks the insulation layer. In most of the cases the space available for the insulation is smaller, a combination of rigid and reflective insulation fits much better than using blankets.

Fiberglass insulation is available in a wide variety of thickness. Fiberglass can be installed in various parts of a home’s envelope. It can be pink, yellow, white or green, depending on the manufacturer. Commonly found in blanket form, called batts, it is available in bags containing standard pre-cut lengths and widths.

Fiberglass batt insulation will insulate properly when air can be effectively trapped. Fibreglass insulation is inherently non-absorbent – it means that moisture stays on the surface of the material and does not penetrate. Strong and long-lasting: Pound for Pound fiberglass is stronger than sheet metal.
