Thermal Insulation For Roofs
Thermal Insulation for Roofs is one of the most critical aspects of building your new home. Installing Thermal Insulation in existing homes is equally important. We must not make this decision without the correct thought process.
Thermal Roof Insulation installed correctly will reduce heat loss or gain by as much as 35%. The roof space of all homes is the most significant contributor to energy loss or gain.
Best Thermal Insulation For Roofs
Thermal insulation is the ability of insulation to reduce heat transfer between objects of differing temperatures. The radiative influence of the two parts meet.
Heat flow is an inevitable consequence of contact between objects of different objects making contact. Thermal insulation provides a region of insulation in which thermal conduction is reduced. Or when thermal radiation is reflected rather than absorbed by the lower-temperature body. For more on This, read here.
One of the best Thermal Insulation Products for roofs is the 135mm Aerolite Insulation. This Roof Insulation product has an installed R-value of 3.78. This R-value is one of the highest in its class worldwide.
We should select the best Thermal Insulation for roofs based on specific criteria.
- The thermal ability of the insulation is essential. For this reason, we must install insulation with a higher R-value for best results.
- Fire Rating is essential as you do not want your home going up in smoke.
- Ideally, the Roof Insulation should last for many years. The Aerolite Insulation has a long lifespan of 25-50 years.
Aerolite Thermal Insulation
The Aerolite Thermal insulation has one of the highest R-values of all Roof Insulation products on the market. In fact, not only has the Aerolite Insulation got an R-value of 3.78 when installed. This insulation also has a great NRC. 1.1. The NRC or Noise Reduction Coefficient means Aerolite Insulation has excellent soundproofing and acoustic benefits as well.
Aerolite Insulation Fire Rating
This insulation has the best fire rating in South Africa. With the Class A/1 fire rating, your home is safe. Aerolite is not combustible. This insulation will not burn or sustain a flame. Unlike all other Roof Insulation products with BB 1 / 2 fire rating. A BB 1 /2 fire rating means if there is a fire in your roof space, the insulation will burn with the fire. With the A/1 fire rating, it makes absolute sense to install Aerolite.
Lifespan Of Aerolite Thermal Insulation
The lifespan of fibreglass insulation is 25 to 35 years so Think Pink will give years of comfort and energy saving.
How Thermal Insulation Pays For Itself
Installing the proper Thermal Insulation will reduce the need for expensive heating and cooling. Homeowners can recover the cost of thermal insulation in two to three years based on less energy consumption.
Reducing the need for an Air conditioner in summer will save a substantial amount of energy. In most homes, the temperature difference with SANS compliant insulation will improve temperature by 4 to 8 degrees C. This, in turn, will mean more comfort as well as less usage of Air conditioners.
Reducing the need for heating and saving energy in the home in winter will also reduce energy costs. Insulated homes are far warmer than uninsulated homes. Our Aerolite Insulation Installers are well trained and fully supervised so that you can get the entire summer and winter benefits.
