Do you think your home is operating to optimum efficiency?
Have you ever doubted whether you’re really doing all you can to keep your energy bills? There’s an easy place to start – and that’s by looking at your ceiling insulation.
It’s amazing to think that nearly a quarter of all heat is lost through the roof of a home when incorrect or minimal insulation exists.
Quite simply, your money is being wasted as heating or cooling efforts are simply disappearing through your roof.
By installing the correct ceiling installation, you can ensure that your home will always remain cool in hot Summer months and warm in the cooler Winter.
The Right Type of Insulation
There are different types of ceiling insulation and the right option for you will depend on the space you have, the budget, the climate you live in and the style of your home.
You’ll need to think about ceiling insulation as an investment and understand that it can save you money in the long term despite the initial installation costs.
There are different materials to choose from when considering the right type of ceiling installation for you.
- Rock Wool
- Fiber glass
How Ceiling Insulation Works
Before you choose your ceiling insulation, it’s good to have an understanding of the role that it plays and how it actually works.
Heat will always travel (via conduction) through the solid walls and roof of a building. The outer walls and roof tiles of a building will be hotter than the atmosphere around them. This causes the cold air close to them to heat up and flow away (via convection).
Without ceiling insulation, the heat flows out of the building and is lost.
Installation of Ceiling Insulation
It is possible to install ceiling insulation yourself with many people undertaking this as a DIY option.
However, it’s highly recommended to seek professional advice if you have any doubts whatsoever.
Ceiling insulation that is not installed correctly will be inefficient and could be a waste of money if it does not work efficiently.
