Safe R Insulation Christchurch – Warmafloor Advice

Quite simply blown floor insulation works to keep the outside temperature out and the inside temperature in says Safe R Insulation Christchurch. Think of it like a chilly bin or vacuum flask, if you put hot food in it stays warm and if you put cold food in it stays cold. Heating and cooling account for 50 to 70% of the energy used in the average home. Inadequate insulation and air leakage are leading causes of energy waste in most homes. Correctly designed & fitted insulation:

  1. Saves money and our nation’s limited energy resources
  2. Makes your house more comfortable by helping to maintain a uniform temperature throughout the house, and
  3. Floors warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Poorly insulated homes are usually cold & damp in bed and service rooms, with occupants crowded over a heater in one area to keep warm, and Safe R Insulation Christchurch can help with solutions and advice.

The underfloor insulation must cover all accessible parts of the floor below the habitable spaces of the dwelling, except where clearances are required – e.g. for pipework. The insulation must be in reasonable condition – damage such as rips, tears, or salt or dust deposits on the shiny face of foil insulation degrades the performance of foil insulation. It is common to find damage to underfloor foil insulation.

Where existing insulation is damaged, degraded, missing or incomplete, new non-electrically conductive underfloor insulation must be installed with an R-value of at least R 1.3 from 1 July 2016.

Homes insulated with the full proven systems use similar amounts of energy to keep your whole home at a healthy, comfortable temperature. And there’s no more waking up to a cold floor. The Warmafloor insulation system is a great investment for your home.
