Ceiling Insulation Types in New Zealand:
The polyester insulation material is recycled plastic fibre. It is similar to fibre as used in pillows and duvets. We use 100% polyester of exceptional quality and effectiveness. The material is high-performance, low allergenic, non-toxic, moisture and rodent resistant. The fibre is heat-bonded together for a long-lasting body to keep your home warmer.
Fibreglass insulation is the traditional insulation made from spun glass fibres that are held together by glues and resins. Once ubiquitous but is now outlawed and recognised as a health hazard. Extra care is required when handling fibreglass as it can cause irritation to the skin, eyes, and breathing problems. You need to wear goggles, gloves and face mask during the installation.
Ceiling Insulation Formats:
The installers install the insulation material between joists above your ceiling. They come in rectangular blocks, so they fit between the joists. As some amount of heat gets lost through the timber, so Higher R-value insulation should be used.
A roll of insulation is used to cover your ceiling. It has lesser joins that heat can escape through. Also, it prevents excessive heat loss through the timber joists. It is preferred when you are topping up existing insulation, as it is easier to roll it over the top of what’s there already.
Few roof areas don’t have enough space to move around and install bulk insulation. Loose-fill insulation is blown into the ceiling using a machine. Insulation material can take the time to settle and can also have moisture problems. An experienced installer is needed for installation which also takes care of heat sources like chimneys, flues, light fittings, etc. while installation to avoid a fire hazard.
