What is Warmafloor Insulation?

Warmafloor is a blown insulation designed to for New Zealand floors and mid-floors that delivers a high thermal performance.

Installers can work efficiently because blown-in insulation fills spaces around joists, wires, pipes and irregular-shaped cavities creating a complete thermal barrier for the underside of your house.

The Benefits of Warmafloor Insulation

Why Insulate Your Floors?

Insulating your floors is a crucial aspect of creating a comfortable, energy-efficient living environment. Without adequate insulation in your floors, your home can easily suffer with heat loss and heat gains. Blown insulation is a particularly effective solution for insulating the floors and midfloors of both existing houses and new builds, and helps seal the thermal envelope of your home. 

The flexibility of Warmafloor makes it an excellent choice for retrofitting existing homes. It can be applied without having to remove existing linings, making the process less invasive and more efficient. For new builds, it can be seamlessly integrated into the construction process, providing superior insulating performance from the outset.

Warmafloor is a versatile, efficient, and highly effective option for floor insulation in both new and existing homes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Warmafloor Insulation completely safe for the family?

Warmafloor is made up to 80% recycled glass and inert materials that are non-combustible and can help inhibit the spread of fire. For recessed lights we specify XLP protectors around every light. Warmafloor is a non combustible material.

Warmafloor mineral wool insulation will not exceed the Gib 2010 Guide maximum weight until R10, so is suitable for most gib board or plaster ceilings. The most critical factor for safe, long-term performance is a correct installation system. Warmafloor is a proven performer since 1995.

Warmafloor Insulation is extremely durable and has a life expectancy of over 50 years!

Why should you insulate your floors with Warmafloor?

Quite simply floor insulation works to keep the outside temperature out and the inside temperature in! Think of it like a chilly bin or vaccuum 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
3. Keeps your house drier and healthier.

Poorly insulated homes are usually cold & damp in bed and service rooms, with occupants crowded over a heater in one area to keep warm. Homes insulated with the full proven systems use similar amounts of energy to keep your whole home at a healthy, comfortable temperature. The Warmafloor insulation system is a great investment for your home.

What makes Warmafloor different from other floor insulation products?

Until recently, the only way to retrofit insulation to your floors was to use a segment or batt product. Typically, these products have lower thermal resistance values and the installation process can often leave gaps of voids when installing around pipework or cables.

Warmafloor insulation is a blown insulation product. It’s installed under the floorboards, or your mid-floors in-between the floor joists using a specialised installation process.

Blown insulation can be installed at different densities so is the perfect insulation where you’re looking for a high performance thermal and acoustic insulation product. The installation process is quick and easy, and the product fills up all the gaps and voids typically left by other products.

How good is Warmafloor Insulation?

Warmafloor is a premium insulation product, and one of the best insulation products available allowing you to keep the outside temperature out, and the inside temperature in!

The total installed thermal floor insulation effectiveness of Warmafloor is superior to batting or blanket, as it fills the entire floor cavity – without joints, gaps, thermal bridging, or vented cavities commonly found between linings, batting or blanket insulation. It provides premier insulation values. Batting insulation or blanket materials need at least two layers to achieve the same installed thermal effectiveness of Warmafloor insulation.
