Thermal Insulation for Roofs is one of the most important aspects of building your new home. In fact, installing Thermal Insulation in existing homes is equally important. This decision should not be made 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 largest contributor of energy loss or gain.
Best Thermal Insulation For Roofs
Thermal insulation is the ability of insulation to reduce heat transfer between objects of differing temperature. The radiative influence of two parts meet.
Heat flow is an inevitable consequence of contact between objects of different objects making contact. In fact, 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.

One of the best Thermal Insulation Products for roofs is the 135mm Aerolite Insulation. This Roof Insulation product has an installed R-value 3.78. In fact, this R-value is one of the highest in its class worldwide.
The Best Thermal Insulation for roofs should be selected on certain criteria.
- The thermal ability of the insulation. The higher the Thermal properties and the R-value the better the Insulation.
- Fire Rating is very important. As you do not want your home going up in smoke.
- The lifespan of the Thermal Insulation. Ideally, the Roof Insulation should last for many 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 3.78 when installed. This insulation also has a great NRC. 1.1. The NRC or Noise Reduction Coefficient means Aerolite Insulation has great sound proofing 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 fiberglass insulation is 25 to 35 years. This, in fact, will give you years of comfort and energy saving.
How Thermal Insulation Pays For Itself
In fact, installing the right Thermal Insulation will reduce the need for expensive heating and cooling. It has been estimated that the insulation cost can be recovered in two or 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 cost. Insulated homes are far warmer than un insulated homes. Our Aerolite Insulation Installers are well trained and fully supervised so that you can get the full summer and winter benefit.
