Insulation isn’t just a product, but a lifestyle choice. When you choose to insulate your home with high-quality insulation batts and rolls then you’re deciding to live a healthier and more comfortable life. Insulation makes it harder for hot air to pass through it – keeping the warmth outside in the summer and inside during the winter. This happens because hot air always wants to travel to the coldest area it can find.
Insulation products will also actively reduce your carbon footprint. A fifth of greenhouse gasses in Australia originate from homes. By installing insulation you’re cutting those emissions by 5%. Certain insulation products – such as glasswool – are even made of recycled and sustainable materials – further contributing positively to the environment. Products such as glasswool are also impervious to vermin which will promote a healthier environment and ecosystem within your home.
The R-value is used to measure the thermal efficiency of insulation – or how resistant it is to heat flow. It is designed to help you select what sort of insulation grade is right for your home – the higher the R-value, the more thermal resistance the product has.
Our catalogue of insulation products encompasses all R-value ranges to ensure you find the best fit for your home and environment. When looking at R-values, be sure to remember that your walls and roofs are also thermally resistant, meaning that their R-value – low as it may be – will be added on to the R-value of whichever insulation you purchase.
With effective Melbourne insulation, your need to use your heating and cooling system will drop drastically – resulting in a cost reduction of up to 30%! When you buy quality insulation from Insulation Essentials, your home will be effectively and thoroughly sealed for a lifetime. Not only will your insulation be saving you money over a long period but it’ll also be saving energy and positively impacting the environment.
