Insulation

Insulation throughout the world is one of the major factors in saving energy. The energy crisis is affected and the entire continent has become a huge huge problem affecting global warming. Insulation reduces the amount of energy that we use in our homes.

What is Insulation

Insulation is a means of reducing heat flow. Furthermore this will reduce heat flow in or out of the home.

The Isotherm or Think Pink Aerolite is a way of saving energy. Reducing the rate of loss of cold air controlling the temperature environment in a specific area.

It has become compulsory for all new homes to have insulation achieving a specific R value. Depending on the area that you live in. For the first time South Africa has woken up to the fact that we have an energy crisis.

In fact the industrial world relies on insulation to save them billions of dollars every year on energy saving alone.

Manufactured for the domestic markets as well as the industrial markets. In fact the domestic market is a very small portion of the market.

Most European and American homes insulation has been standard practice for the last 30 years. However in South Africa since January 2013 the new SANS legislation became standard on all new homes. Furthermore the new sans legislation having a minimum requirement of specific R values for the different regions that we live in.

Subsequently an R-value 3.70 has been zoned for the Western Cape in all new homes.

These changes have revolutionized the way we think in South Africa after energy saving. And we have found that many of the younger generation are learning about energy saving.

With this culture of energy saving, many people are now starting to think about the planet and how to do their bit.

Both Aerolite as well as isotherm are both eco-friendly products made from recycled waste.

Will Insulation Save Energy In My Home

This will create a warm of ceiling that will radiate heat down into the house for hours after the sun has set. The heat that is between the ceiling the roof has no option but to make your home very hot inside. This heat flow downwards and keep the home a lot cooler summers day when insulated.

If you are running Air conditioning units your energy bill will drop substantially. On average Ceiling Insulation could pay for itself in 2 to 3 years.

In the winter months warm air in the house rises and lost through the ceiling into the cold roof above. This means insulating your roof you prevent this massive loss of energy.
