Isotherm Insulation is Hypoallergenic
Isotherm Ceiling Insulation is a first choice of home owners who want The best Roof Insulation available with no dust issues or allergy problems for the home. One of the major issues with traditional insulation is that it is generally high in allergens, meaning that those individuals who struggle with allergies suffer from flare ups; however, Isotherm is completely dust free, so it does not cause allergic reactions. The fact that this insulation is hypoallergenic has resulted in Isotherm Thermal Insulation for Roofs being one of the most popular insulation’s being installed in new homes. It is also the predominant choice when replacing insulation in older homes. The fact that it is environmentally friendly and safe for people who suffer with allergies makes ideal for most homes.
This product also has a high level of water resistance, subsequently making it perfect for those homes in areas where there are high levels of humidity during the hot months.
Isotherm Home Insulation has developed a reputation for being a highly viable option as a Thermal Insulation for Roofs and Ceilings. Before making a final decision to buy Isotherm or to have installed, it is a good idea to gain at least a minimal perspicacity of the functionality and benefits of this polyester-based insulation.

Isotherm Insulation 30 year Guarantee
Isotherm because of the products used to manufacture the Isotherm Insulation has a 30 year manufacturer guarantee. Their is no maintenance needed with Isotherm and the product will last way longer than the 30 year guarantee. Unlike most Insulation types and especially the blow in type paper insulation products with a very short Installed life span because of the fire retardant properties dissipating in a few short years. Most manufactures will give a 5 to 10 year guarantee as they find it difficult to achieve a stable Roof Insulation product that is still in place and has not shifted significantly with the wind as with finely shredded paper.
Isotherm Insulation is Recyclable
Another exceptional benefit of using Isotherm is the fact that it is 100 percent recyclable. This also helps to promote a better environment. The recycled product does not diminish in its capacity to produce heating and cooling efficiency. The recycled product functions with the same level of efficiency as insulation made with new materials. When you consider the fact that this insulation is also fire retardant, it can definitely contribute to your peace of mind.
Recycled insulation is also highly cost effective; not only due to the fact that it can save you up to 25 to 30 percent on your heating and cooling cost month after month, but it is also cost effective at the front end. On average, Isotherm insulation will produce a return on investment in as short as two years.
Recycled insulation also uses plastic bottles as a part of the manufacturing process. The PET process is designed to reduce the number of bottles dumped in landfills. These bottles are primary elements of the manufacturing process. This plays a major role in eliminating multitudinous environmental hazards that are prevalent when certain materials are left to rot in open landfills. When things such as plastic bottles are left out to rot, it can negatively impact the air that we breathe and it can contaminate land on which future crops are planted.

What is Isotherm Insulation R-value ?
What is R-value?
By definition, R-value is insulation’s ability to resist the flow of heat. In simple terms, R-value is the term used to tell you how well a type of insulation insulates. Essentially, the R-value gives you the opportunity to calculate the amount of heat that will be able to move through a specific wall depending on the difference in temperature between the air outside and the air inside. The higher the R-value of a type of insulation, the more insulating power it has.
You may occasionally see the term up R-value, also referred to as “winter” R-value, or down R-value, also referred to as “summer” R-value. Up R-value is the measure of the resistance to the upward flow of heat, while down R-value is the measure of resistance to the downward flow of heat.
How Do Manufacturers Determine Insulation’s R-value?
Manufacturers test for the R-value of insulation in a laboratory using a sequence of tests that are standard in the insulation industry. Most manufacturers choose to have their values certified by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS).Isotherm Insulation is Sabs tested as well as Tiasa.
Where Can You Find Isotherm Insulation R-value?
Isotherm Insulation print the total R-value of their insulation on labels fitted to the Isotherm Insulation covered by the manufactures branded packaging. Also, it is usually printed on the facing of rolls and batts. If insulation is not attached to a facing, the R-value is typically printed on the product itself or it may be indicated using a stripe coding.

Roof Vacuum Removal of Cellulose Paper Insulation
We at Roof Insulation Cape Town have purchased a large industrial vacuum machine designed for heavy duty dust removal in in roofs, The Roof vacuum machine is ideal for the removal of blown in paper insulation that is very popular in the Cape especially before the winter rains. As we all know fine paper dust used as insulation is a major contributor to ceiling damage as the paper absorbs the water should your Roof have a leak in winter or a geyser pipe that bursts this could be problems as paper will absorb large volumes of water before the ceiling collapses. Our vacuum machine will obviously also be an advantage for those who just want to remove many years of unhealthy dust as well. In most cases dust is a fire hazard if you have large volumes of dust. In fact we have removed up to 1.5 tons of dust in Cape town central from one medical practice, as a result of the fire department insisting the dust be removed because of the potential for fire. This was an extreme amount of dust and is not very common.
Removal of Cellulose Paper Insulation after Ceiling Collapse
Blown in paper or Cellulose as it is known will absorb water as it is fine paper like dust. This will in turn increase te weight of the insulation quite dramatically until the inevitable ceiling collapse with substantial damage as well as internal damages. Roll form insulation is designed to allow water to flow through it, this will allow you the opportunity of realizing that your roof is leaking. Giving you time to repair or make some arrangements to prevent damage.
Removal of old Blown in Paper Insulation
The mos dangerous is old paper insulation that has lost its fire retardant chemicals as a result of the moisture in a few winters in the Cape. Paper insulation like cellulose insulation has a fire rating when blown in the roof, this however only lasts for a few years and then the potential for fire is quite high. Also the absorption of water is another risk but this is mostly damage to ceiling and property. Our roof vacuum machine removes the paper insulation or Cellulose insulation with ease. We remove the Paper insulation or Cellulose from site and dump at the appropriate HAZARDOUS Chemical dump site. We also remove old blown in fiberglass insulation as well as any old insulation products.
