Every thermal insulation batt has an R-value, also known as R-rating. The R-value represents the amount of heat resistance that the insulation material has. A high R-value is generally more bulky and has a higher insulating capacity than a lower R-value, regardless of which brand it is. This is an important factor to keep in mind when comparing prices between the various insulation brands.
The R-value which we will recommend for your project depends mainly on the climatic zone where the insulation is to be installed. By ordering your insulation online and installing it yourself, you as a home owner can save a significant money and substantially reduce your energy bills over the life of your home. Alternatively, you can get the insulation installed by professional installers. Insulating the walls, ceiling and underfloor with thermal insulation will ensure the building will retain a lot more of the warmth in the winter months and also help keep your family comfortable during the hotter seasons of the year.
An insulation batt is essentially a piece of material which heat and cold is slow to move through. Various materials have differing levels of "thermal conductivity" – i.e. they are more or less efficient at transferring temperature. The more conducive to temperature transfer, the less effective a material is as an insulator. Roofs, walls and floors are typically constructed of materials with a high level of thermal conductivity – timber, plasterboard, cement etc, all of which are very poor insulators.
Insulation batts – whether these are made from glasswool, polyester or other materials – are manufactured specifically to reduce temperature transfer. Need more advice? Get in touch with our friendly staff today!
