We all know the importance of insulating our homes. With energy bills on the rise, nobody wants the heat in their home to be wasted, and insulation helps trap the heat to keep your home warm. However, during the summer months it serves a purpose too, stopping excess heat from entering your home to keep it cool. This means you spend less money running fans. One type of insulation you may have heard about is multi foil, which has a reflective layer. Should you install this in your home? Here are some reasons why it makes the best insulation.
What is multi foil insulation?
Put simply, multifoil is a type of insulation that’s made up with layers of foil as well as wadding. Multi foil insulation is often carried out on new builds, but it can also be added to older properties. More energy efficient than many traditional types of insulation, it’s easy to install and has a number of useful properties, such as:
- Vapour control – this stops the insulation becoming damp, keeping it effective
- Can be used alone or with other insulation
- The foil layer reflects heat, stopping it escaping the building
- Thinner than traditional insulation, making it suitable for walls, floors, or ceilings
Insulating your home properly is an excellent way to make it more energy efficient. This means you use less energy, and reduce your carbon footprint. However, super foil insulation is also better for the environment as it’s made from 40% recycled materials. This means that you can be sure that your new build, or home upgrade, is kept as environmentally friendly as possible.
Choose your level
Multi foil insulation can be used on its own, with various levels of insulation, or can be used with other products to get a great result. If you already have another multilayer insulation installed, then multi foil can then be added on top, meaning even the draughtiest of old houses can become warm and cosy.
Long life span
When you install new insulation, you want your investment to last as long as possible. That’s why you should choose multi foil for your roof insulation. With a life expectancy of over 50 years, it lasts longer than many other types of insulation, so you can get the most for your money. It’s worth investing in a quality product to get the best results, and the difference is soon paid for in energy savings.
If you are adding insulation for a new build, then you want to know it’ll meet building regulation standards, so you don’t suffer delays in getting approval. Multi foil insulation from Super Foil is LABC Registered System approved, saving you time, and meaning you aren’t stuck having to make replacements if you use a cheaper, inferior product.
