Types of insulation for your home

home insulationAbsolute Energy provides insulation for all areas of your home, wall, floor and roof. By fully insulating your home, you can be assured your home will have comfort year-round. Less money will be spent trying to heat and cool your home. Here are all the areas of insulation we provide to keep your home at a more consistent and comfortable temperature.

Wall insulation

Wall insulation reduces the amount of heat loss, resulting in lower energy bills. One of the most important factors when insulating your home is wall insulation. Particularly since an estimated 30-40% of the heat in your home is lost through the walls.

Not only does wall insulation help with reduced energy but with reduced noise levels and condensation making your home more comfortable year-round. Without wall insulation, air can easily escape through the walls of your home. This means any effort you put into heating or cooling your home can be quickly lost, making it difficult and expensive to maintain a comfortable inside temperature.

Floor insulation

Insulating your floors is an important part of sealing your homes thermal envelope. It is a huge opportunity to lower power bills. By installing floor insulation, you can prevent cold air from entering your home through the floor. In most newer homes underfloor insulation is taken care of as part of the slab design, however many older homes built on piles lack a proper insulation barrier under the house.

Poor underfloor insulation means air can easily escape through the floors of your home, making it difficult to heat and cool your home. Absolute Energy installs polyester insulation blankets underside of your home to help seal this area of your thermal barrier. It’s a quick and easy process and makes an enormous difference to your home environment.

Roof insulation

Roof insulation helps to control your home’s temperature by slowing the transfer of heat out of your home. Fully insulating your roof cavity slows down the transfer of heat between your living space and the outside world, creating a warmer home in winter and a cooler one in summer. Your ceiling is probably the single most important area of your house to insulate.

There are several different insulation products and materials available for New Zealand homes. Absolute Energy works to determine the best product for your roof. Some of the products we can use includes insulation batts. Or we may opt for a loose-fill or wool blown insulation product, depending on what’s the right fit for your home. We can provide a free home assessment to determine which product is most suitable for your roof.
