How to upgrade your home with insulation?
Aerolite® Soft Touch ceiling insulation reduces heat flow out of your home in winter and into your home in summer by up to 30%, thus lowering energy consumption and reducing your electricity expenses. With the current national energy crisis (loadshedding) opting for non-energy reliant sources for heating and cooling systems is the way to go. Loadshedding has caused negative effects on many factors of everyday life. Why not invest in our solutions and create a safe, comfortable, and thermally regulated home, while saving money on your utility bills.
Did you know that most of the heat from your geyser is actually lost through the hot water pipes connecting to the geyser. By insulating your geyser and pipes you can save up to 58% of the energy used to heat up your geyser system. The SANS 10400 XA mandate states that all exposed pipes to indoor or outdoor air, conveying hot water to and from the hot water cylinders and heating systems, shall be insulated with pipe insulation. Our geyser blanket serves as an additional layer of insulation, helping to further reduce heat loss and improve energy efficiency.
Insulation provides acoustic comfort
Peace and quiet is essential to relaxation, healing, and concentration, and for those seeking acoustic comfort, effective sound insulation is a necessity. Protection from external noise adds to the sense of security and privacy in your home, enhancing overall comfort. Sound can also affect your mood and wellbeing, and if your household is busy with multi-functional spaces and several activities co-existing, it’s beneficial to manage acoustics, especially if you have an open plan design.
The importance of insulation has been emphasized and gazette in the newly updated national building regulation on energy efficiency (SANS 10400-XA Ed. 2). The standard clearly stipulates the minimum insulation thermal performance required to ensure occupants comfort and safety. Implementing fire safety measures within buildings is also governed by regulations in South Africa. Aerolite® Soft Touch ceiling insulation and Isover Geyser Insulation Pack are non-combustible, thus providing safety within your home and giving you peace of mind.
