You may have been hearing more talk about insulation recently as its popularity continues to skyrocket. This increase in demand is well justified, as more and more people are beginning to discover the unsurpassable benefits of this economic yet efficient method of thermal treatment for both residential and commercial properties. Easy to install and requiring no power to operate, insulation is easily the best bang for buck product in the market for keeping the heat out in summer and the cold out during the frosty winter months.
If you’re building a new home, now is the time to get your insulation organised. If, on the other hand, you’re looking to fit out your existing property with insulation, read on to find out more about how this is possible for you. Besides the traditional home, there are a few new and innovative ways people are choosing to build domiciles for themselves. Residential structures, such as the tiny houses, are on the rise in demand. An unlikely-yet-clever variation of the tiny house comes in the form of a shipping container. Hoards of pioneers and trailblazers are paving the way for the future of living options and proving that there are yet innovative ways of creating affordable and comfortable places to rest your head at the end of the day. What’s even better is that shipping containers are so easy and simple to insulate, with results that impress well beyond expectation.
As recent decades have passed, there have been incremental improvements in insulation technology. Today, insulation is at the most advanced it’s ever been, and the range of benefits it provides is surprisingly effective. The primary reason most people opt for insulation is to boost the thermal efficiency of their home or work premises. Thermal efficiency is essentially the measure of how effectively a home can manage its climate, retaining desirable temperature, while keeping undesired weather out. Regardless of what your property is like, there is a solution to fit your requirements. For example, at Foilboard, we have insulation that is available in a number of different R-value ratings. This way, you can maximise the effectiveness of your installation, while not spending unnecessarily. Conversely, you can also invest in stronger insulation if your space calls for it.
When your home is uninsulated, the alternative to climate control is the use of air conditioning and heating units. While these energy driven appliances are powerful in their function, they also result in ongoing bills, and the air is, of course, not natural. While there are days when the air conditioner is definitely required, the excessive use of energy can be limited when your home is able to increase its own thermal efficiency with the use of quality insulation. Not only does this help you to keep your money in your pocket, but it does wonders for reducing your carbon footprint. If you’re eager to lessen your individual impact on the planet, installing insulation in your home or office is a great place to start.
Now, if you live in a home that is already fully built, you might be wondering if or how you can benefit from insulation. The excellent news is that there are methods of which you can fit insulation in your property. This process is known as retrofitting, and the exact process will vary from property to property. If you want to learn more about how this can happen for you, contact an insulation specialist from our team today for advice on 1800 354 717.
If you are indeed looking at venturing into innovative territory and building a home in a shipping container or tiny house, we can help you to effectively and economically insulate it. In such a small space, you will be thoroughly pleased with the results. Not to mention that many properties like this are often placed on regional areas of land, leaving them highly exposed to whatever the weather conditions may be. Foilboard insulation is available at Bunnings and other major hardware stores.
