Feeling the Winter Chill? Insulation is Your Solution!


Homeowners across New Zealand are starting to turn their attention to staying warm and cosy during the winter months. With chilly winds and frosty mornings approaching, making sure that your home is properly insulated is more important than ever. Let’s unpack why insulation is the key to a comfortable and energy efficient home, especially as we come into winter.

The Power of Insulation

Insulation acts as a vital thermal barrier, keeping your home warm in winter and cool in summer. By trapping heat inside during the colder months and preventing hot air from infiltrating during summer, insulation helps maintain a comfortable indoor temperature all year round. The benefits of proper insulation go  beyond comfort, with reduced energy bills, consistent warmth throughout the home, and the elimination of drafts. Your heater will work less to maintain a comfortable temperature, ultimately saving you money on power bills.

Addressing Older Homes

Many older homes in New Zealand lack proper wall insulation, leaving them vulnerable to heat loss and chilly drafts. Retrofitting insulation into existing walls is like wrapping your home in a warm blanket, providing much needed warmth and comfort. While the concept may sound overwhelming, there are various retrofitting options available, including internal and external insulation solutions. These options offer homeowners the flexibility to choose the best approach for their specific needs without getting bogged down in technical details.

Roof Top-Ups: A Targeted Approach

Heat loss often occurs through the roof, as warm air naturally rises. Roof top-ups offer a cost effective solution to combat this heat loss, providing targeted insulation where it’s needed the most. Compared to insulating walls or floors, roof top-ups can deliver huge long term benefits, such as improved warmth, lower energy bills, and a wise investment in your home’s comfort and efficiency.
