We all know the importance of insulating our homes. With energy bills on the rise and the impact of climate change at the forefront of our minds, nobody wants heat from their home to be wasted. Multifoil insulation helps trap the heat to keep your home warm. However, it serves a purpose during the summer months, too, stopping excess heat from entering your home to keep it cool. This means you spend less money running fans throughout the warmer months.
One type of insulation you may have heard about is multifoil, which has a protective layer. High-performance foil insulation reduces heat loss and can bring your energy bills down, but what sets multifoil apart from traditional forms of insulation? Should you install multifoil insulation in your home, and Is it the right choice for your project?
What is multifoil insulation?
Put simply, multifoil is a type of insulation that’s made up of layers of foil as well as wadding. Multifoil 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 from becoming damp, keeping it effective
- Can be used alone or with other insulation
- The foil layer reflects heat, stopping it from escaping the building
- Thinner than traditional insulation, making it suitable for walls, floors, or ceilings
Multifoil Insulation is More Sustainable Than Other Options
Insulating your home correctly is an excellent way to make it more energy-efficient. Multifoil insulation has even more efficient benefits than other insulation options on the market. SuperFOIL insulation is also better for the environment because it’s made with 40% recycled materials and fully recyclable at the end of its life! This means you can ensure that your new build or home upgrade is kept as environmentally friendly as possible.
Choose Your Level of Insulation
Multifoil 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.
Multifoil Insulation Has A Long Life Span
When you install new insulation, you want your new investment to last as long as possible. That’s why you should choose multifoil for your roof insulation. With a life expectancy of over 50 years, multifoil insulation lasts longer than many other types of insulation so that you can get the most for your money. It’s worth investing in a quality product to get the best results, and you will soon pay for the difference in your energy bill savings.
Multifoil Insulation Meets Building Regulations
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. Multifoil 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.
