roofinsulation

Overview

There are many good reasons to maintain the condition of the insulation in your roof.

Insulation provides the barrier to prevent heat loss and gain in your home. 25% – 35% of all heat flow is through the ceiling.  Good insulation provides your home with year round comfort, reducing your energy bills by up to 50%.  By improving the insulation in your home you are helping create a more sustainable environment  – lower energy consumption + lower  greenhouse gas emissions.

Batts or Blow-In?

In theory, providing the products have the same R rating, you should receive the same benefit from both batts and insulation.  In some instances due to poor access, low roof pitch or other obstructions, batts may not be able to be fitted properly and blow in insulation is the only option.

Pros of Batts
  • Easy to move
  • Simple to work around
  • Won’t move around
  • Timbers readily visible
  • Guaranteed for the life of the building
  • Can be fitted close to all downlight covers
  • Higher R rating
Pros of Blow-in insulation
  • It will ensure a complete coverage, meaning no gaps anywhere
  • It can be pumped over existing material, making it cheaper than removing and replacing
  • It can be pumped into raked and flat roofs with little roof disturbance

How to decide what is best for your roof space

If you have a high roof with no obstructions or old material in the roof, and standard joist widths, batts will work very well for you. They are also cheaper than blow-in materials. If the roof is awkward to access, low pitched with ducting, or has old insulation, you may want to consider blow-in. However, the majority of homes can be insulated with batts, especially if you are removing the old material.

It is best to call a company that can offer you all the possible alternatives, so that you can get some un-biased advice. Ask the salesperson to show you what is the benefit in your roof space, and what alternatives their company can offer you. If they only offer one type of product then they will generally tell you that is the best solution as they may not have an effective alternative.

Blow-in

Blow-in insulation can greatly reduce your energy bills by effectively regulating the temperature of your home. As a much more airtight material, it is able to fill areas around pipes, beams and other nooks and crannies that otherwise would have been left as gaps for air to intrude through. Blow-in insulation gives complete coverage, and can also work to prevent noise from travelling through the ceiling.

You can call Cosywrap for an initial quote, and find out whether blow-in insulation is the best solution for you! If so, we will schedule work to begin at the earliest possible date, and complete the remove, vacuum & install process all in one hit!

Vacuum Removal – Old Insulation

We use the SuperSucker which is a powerful, giant vacuum cleaner. It will suck out all loose insulation, dirt, dust and leaves from the ceiling of all domestic and commercial premises.

A powerful suction pump pulls materials through the industrial hose into the storage tank on our truck, ready for dumping. We can suck material up to 100 metres from the initial contaminated site.

Our unique multi-fi ltration system means that no dust is emitted into the environment, allowing other trades to safely work on the same site.

We process material down to 10 microns, allowing it to be safely used for all products except asbestos.

The Super Sucker will suck out wet or dry material, and can be used after water leakages occur in ceilings onto loose insulation.

If there are old batts in place, they can be safely removed before the ceiling is vacuumed clean of all residual particles. All material is removed through the roof, preventing any dust penetrating into the home.
