Oftentimes, people only think about insulation offering warmth in the winter season. While it’s true that insulation does help when the clouds are dark, skies are raining and the sun has gone missing, insulation offers comfort in every season; insulation helps keep your house cooler in the summer too. With high-quality insulation that has been installed properly, individuals and families don’t need to pump the AC all-day and everyday or stay sitting next to a fan all summer long as the materials will help keep your house cooler in the summer!
How Does Insulation Keep Your Home Cool?
We often describe insulation as a thermos. Our team stocks fibreglass batts, polyester batts and foils amongst other products specific for roof and ceiling insulation. Within each type of insulation are layers of material which essentially creates a barrier to heat gains and transferrals from one space and another. Throughout the summer, the scorning Perth heat can rise as high as 40 degrees and it transfers from the roof into lower living spaces. On the other hand, during the colder weather, insulation helps reduce heat loss from spaces by supplying an obstacle to heat transfers. With uninsulated or poorly insulated areas throughout a property, heat—both the hot and cold—easily travels throughout spaces and often impacts one’s level of comfort and cosiness.
Benefits of Insulation
A lot of people invest into a myriad of things when it comes to their house – a mounted flatscreen TV, a fancy outdoor kitchen, a beautiful pool + alfresco included. As a result of newer legislation and regulations, most modern builds require insulation to be added to a home during its development. However, a lot of homeowners of previously built homes are investing in insulation as much like the factors brought up earlier, the protection brings about a number of benefits.
By moderating temperature, insulation helps households and individual increase their comfortable while reducing their energy costs. With enhanced temperatures, whether cooler or warmer, individuals don’t need to rely on technologies such the AC and fans to maintain their comfort.
Obviously, by reducing one’s reliance on technologies such as heaters, there is an environmental benefit that is enjoyed by all. As a leading team, Mr Insulation only stocks and installs high-quality insulation from renown brands such as Bradford, Knauf and Kingspan, who are known for their environmentally-friendly. All of their products are designed for the WA climate all year long. Additionally, acoustic insulation can also provide the benefit of minimising unwanted external noises including nearby traffic, neighbours and the sounds of living.
For these reasons and more, insulation comes with a positive return on investment – it continues to benefit your household years and decades after it is installed. From an economical perspective, most insulation pays for itself in 5 or so years and adds a sell-on value too.
Types of Insulation
We install insulation in areas all throughout homes in Perth, Western Australia. All of the locations below help in summer particularly external installations such as walls.
An attic which is poorly insulated or not insulated at all, causes heat to rise in the summer and heat to be lost rapidly in the winter. An attic/loft space can get hot like the Sahara so this is definitely is a popular option and request in the summer particularly those with younger families.
Ceiling / Roof Insulation
A property without any ceiling and/or roof insulation can experience a heat loss of up to 40%. Additionally, in the summer, premium insulation will block transfers from the sky into your house.
A household with underfloor insulation can result in almost 20% (yep, one fifth!) heat loss during the cooler seasons.
Insulation within the walls can help promote heat loss of up to 25% in the summer.
