Foil insulation is definitely a versatile solution that will help you increase your home’s efficiency and significantly lower your energy bills in the long run.
You can take advantage of foil insulation in any part of your house and in this article we’re going to focus on the 5 most important places you should consider: Attics, walls, ceilings, floors and garages.
So let’s get straight to it then and talk more about each one of them.
The attic is one of the places in your home that is in direct contact with the outside. Foil insulation provides a radiant barrier that will stop heat from getting in during the summer and prevent heat escaping in the winter. Controlling the temperature in your home is important not only for your comfort, but to reduce expenses all year long as well.
This type of insulation can successfully be used for walls as well. Keep in mind that a lot of heat usually escapes through the walls, so this is definitely an area in your house that deserves your attention. This added level of protection will help keep a balanced temperature, thus saving you big bucks on your monthly energy bills.
High ceilings that are not properly insulated can change the temperature in a room faster than you might think, which is not good. Foil insulation works really good with high ceilings, since it will help maintain a consistent temperature. At the same time, it will not interfere with the aesthetics of the slope.
Insulation under the floor tends to be neglected, but it’s a part of your home that you can’t afford to overlook if you want to really increase the efficiency of your house in terms of energy-savings.
Up to 20% of the heat is lost through the floors of a house, which means about a quarter of your heat is potentially escaping this way. Trust us, you’ll feel it, especially in the winter. Insulating the floors will not only change the overall temperature of your house, but reduce the amount of your heating bill as well.
Conservatories have always been a problem area when it comes to thermal performance, they are either too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter making them unusable for large periods of time. Because of this, insulating your conservatory is becoming increasingly popular but due to their irregular shape and structure they are often very difficult to insulate with traditional types of insulation.
This is where foil insulation comes in because it’s lightweight, easy to install and conforms easily to unusual shapes. Insulating your conservatory will allow you make better use of it all year round.
