1. Costs less to heat and cool your home

One of the many benefits of wall insulation in homes is the reduced costs spent on electricity bills. Wall insulation causes heat flow resistance, keeping your home warm in winter and cool in summer. Lowering the costs of heating and cooling can be done by having quality insulation in your walls, floors and ceilings reducing the heat transfer into or out of your home keeping the temperature right year-round. Absolute Energy provides quality wall insulation products that will benefit both you and your home. To learn more about wall insulation click here

2. Wall Insulation provides year-round comfort

Wall insulation provides year-round comfort for your home by creating a barrier that separates outside and inside air, keeping the temperature in your home consistent. In the winter, cold air enters your home through the walls, floor, and ceiling cavities. Insulating your home can keep the cold air out while trapping the warmer air inside. In summer, the reverse is also true. Warm air also comes through the walls, floors, and ceiling cavities but again, insulating your home can trap the cooler air inside and keep the heat out to provide a comfortable home through all seasons.

3. Helps prevent condensation and mold from growing

Many New Zealand homes are cold and damp, primarily due to a lack of floor, ceiling, and wall insulation. Insulation can help reduce excess moisture in your home allowing for a warmer and dryer home, especially through the colder months. Installing wall insulation your home will help prevent condensation and mold from growing throughout your home, making it a healthier and dryer place to live.

4. Its low-maintenance and lasts a lifetime

Once insulation is installed there is no ongoing maintenance required. It is an investment that will benefit your home and family for years to come without any upkeep. Most insulation products have a lifetime guarantee, so when you insulate your home with Absolute Energy, you can be sure your house is set for the future.

5. Wall Insulation makes your home more energy efficiency

One of the benefits that comes from an insulated house is the amount of money you can save on trying to heat and cool your house. According to experts, heat loss without insulation is around 18-25% through the walls. 12-14% through the floor. And 30-35% through the roof. This shows that without insulation, your home is susceptible to fluctuating temperatures resulting in more money spent trying to keep a steady temperature through winter and summer. With insulation the heat loss slows down to 10-15% for the walls. 10-20% for the floors. And only 5-10% percent for the roof. This decrease in heat loss is what helps cut down the energy you use to heat your home. Learn more about energy efficiency here.
