What do you expect from insulation? Optimal thermal performance is the prime feature of a quality insulation product, and Earthwool Insulation is one of it. Even though thermal performance is the prime focus, many other factors are also there to consider when shopping for insulation for your home. The safety of it, easy-to-install, durability, price, and the reputation of the manufacturer — these are other crucial factors to confirm apart from thermal performance. Price and performance are two connected factors. For example, Earthwool Insulation is an affordable product, not cheap. So, the manufacturer could give you a quality product and make money through it at the same time.
At affordable rates, what you get in return from Earthwool Insulation? The safety when concerning insulation refers to product safety and its effects on your family. Can the buyer install it him/herself, when considering the product safety? Making mistakes; hence hiring professional installers is a different fact. But, those thermal barriers shouldn’t affect our health negatively. As you know, the old days’ insulation can even kill you. But, Earthwool Insulation is 100% free from dangerous contaminants. So, you get a product that is 100% safe at affordable rates. How about its performance? Well, the thermal performance of batt and blown-in insulation gets determined by the R-value of it. Depending on the temperature levels in your region; you should choose the ideal R-value.
The manufacturer is the party who decides the extension of its products in the insulation market. For example, the temperature across Australia is not the same everywhere. So, thermal barrier manufacturers should produce insulation that suits for all homeowners in Australia. To fulfill this crucial requirement; Earthwool Insulation comes with an R-value range for you. If you are not sure of the right R-value that suits your region; ask it from the insulation supplier. Standard values are there related to different Australian cities. No matter your city, this insulation brand has the right R-value for you, and we guarantee it. Again, this feature also comes at pretty affordable rates.
The durability of insulation is another part of the performance. If insulation only survives for a few years due to day-to-day environmental factors, the majority of homeowners would not invest money in it. But, Earthwool Insulation serves you for up to five decades; hence it lasts for until the next generations. As we have explained by our previous articles, you should inspect insulation for damages caused by common insulation killers; it is your responsibility. An insulation product that lasts for 50 years at affordable rates — what a benefit for the buyer? Resistance to insulation killers is another factor to highlight here. Water ingress can’t cause damages to this product range. Pest infestations can’t either. But, wildlife can cause damages to even the best thermal barrier range. So, make sure you get rid of any wildlife in the attic or underfloor compartment before installing new Earthwool Insulation.
Try your best to protect your thermal barriers from water ingress through roof leaks. Even though it won’t cause damages to insulation, the overall efficiency will go down a lot as a result. If you suspect for wildlife in the attic, hire a home inspector and get it checked. Never install Earthwool Insulation on top of old insulation. Got any more questions regarding this great product?
