Caravans are part of a great Aussie tradition.
Hitching your caravan to your car and taking it around our great country is a relaxing and low-cost way to enjoy the holidays.
Despite caravans being a low cost form of travel, they still require maintenance and proper care to ensure your travel remains stress free.
An increasingly popular way to ensure enjoy every moment in your caravan paradise, is by insulating your caravan to keep it warm in winter and cool in summer
By their very nature, caravans are often exposed to the harsh realities of Australian weather. To ensure you can enjoy yours all year round, caravan insulation is a must.
If your caravan is an older model, this is particularly important as many older models do not come with great insulation built into the structure.
The most common questions around caravan insulation centre on, what materials can you use to insulate your caravan? What parts of the caravan do you need to insulate?
At Foilboard, we have a number of suggestions and recommendations to help you get the most out of your caravan insulation. We can start by running through a number of commonly asked questions on caravan insulation.
What parts of the caravan should be insulated?
There are a number of options when looking to insulate your caravan. At Foilboard, we recommend reviewing the following choices depending on your current setup:
- Caravan Roof Insulation
- Caravan Windows Insulation
- Caravan Wall Insulation
- Caravan Floor Insulation
Although many caravan owners only consider insulating the walls, there are many advantages of ensuring that the roof, floors, and windows are similarly well insulated. We would suggest consulting a specialist on the best material to use as well as how to install it in your caravan. You can always send us an email at email@example.com and we can try answer any questions you have.
Caravan Floor Insulation
Insulating panels can be installed to the floor by building a subfloor with battens. The panels can be installed between these battens to provide insulation. This will help keep the heat out in the summer and keep your toes warm on those chilly outback nights.
Windows Caravan Insulation
Caravan windows can be tinted and it is also good practice to use curtains to reduce heat transfer. Single-pane windows can be replaced with double-glazed acrylic units, and shade awnings can be used on larger windows.
Caravan Roof Insulation
To minimise the amount of heat radiating into the ceiling, the roof may be fitted with reflective insulating material.
By insulating all three main areas of your caravan you are able to protect your caravan from all the outside elements, all the time.
What materials to use for caravan insulation
Just as there is a wide range of insulation materials available for a house, there are also a wide range of materials you can use for caravan insulation.
Before we get into the specific materials you can choose from, you should understand what an R-value is.
R value represents the material’s thermal resistance. It is a measure of how well the material resists heat transfer. The higher the R value, the higher the thermal resistance.
