One of the best ways to manage heating, cooling, and noise levels in your home in Perth is Ceiling Insulation.
Ceiling insulation is often forgotten in the environmental and energy savings stakes when it comes to reducing your power bills over winter and summer.
The goal of choosing the right ceiling insulation is to check what the R rating, or R-value is for the product that you are using.
As a general guide, the higher the R-value of the ceiling insulation, the more effective the product is at thermal management – meaning keeping your space warm in winter and cool in summer.
Some ceiling insulation products will have a total R-value, while some will have an up or down R-value (meaning heat flowing up – winter R values, or heat flowing down – summer R values).
Common choices for ceiling insulation include the following:
- Glasswool – like Pink Batts
- Reflective insulation
- Materials made from recycled paper or shredded cellulose
Glasswool can be installed as either loose material or in batts (panels) that are cut to fit the space between rafters in the roof.
This option can also assist with acoustic management – reducing the transfer of noise from one space to another.
Reflective insulation is made from a foil and works by reflecting heat back into a space.
Recycled paper or shredded cellulose as ceiling insulation solutions are a great low-cost alternative with a high R-value rating.
The choice of insulation and type will vary depending on your ceiling space and roofing material. To find out which solution is right for your space, contact the team at Heron Ceilings.
