Save money on your monthly electricity bills by increasing the thermal and acoustic insulation of your home

Save on your electricity bills

Installing insulation in your home is key to unlocking ideal comfort in your living spaces. However, a common misconception is that insulation is a luxury when it is in fact a requirement as stated in the national building regulations. Aerolite Soft Touch®, a locally manufactured ceiling insulation, serves as a solution that reduces heat flow in and out of your building, saving you money on your electricity bills.

Insulation saves you money

South Africa’s mounting energy crisis means that we need to think of innovative ways to save electricity in our homes, making it more energy efficient. Insulating a typical home’s ceiling will cost you less than the total building cost per square metre, yet ceiling insulation is one of the few building materials that will save you money for the lifespan of your home. 
Aerolite® Soft Touch provides the user with lifelong savings on their electricity bills as heat is retained in winter and it reduces the need for cooling interventions in summer. Opting for non-energy reliant sources for your heating and cooling system is the way to go.
Aerolite® Soft Touch complies with SANS 10400-XA National Building Standards. By using the correct thickness of ceiling insulation according to your region, you could lower your energy consumption and reduce electricity expenses. Find the required thickness for your region here
