1. Bulk Insulation
This protects your home by regulating temperature control. In most cases, bulk insulation is advisable for homes that are situated in cooler areas. It is available as boards, rolls and batts. You can also choose from different types of materials for bulk insulation such as recycled paper, natural wool, rockwool, glass wool and polyester.
2. Reflective Insulation
This type of insulation is recommended for homes that are frequently exposed to warm climates such as Mid North of South Australia & South East Queensland. It deflects radiant heat, so your home stays cooler during the summer. Among the different materials used in reflective insulation are concertina-style foil and foil sheets that are laminated onto paper-based material. An air space of about 25 mm is necessary to reflect heat from foil insulation.
When it comes to choosing the best type of insulation for your home, various factors are taken into consideration such as your home’s design, its orientation to north, and the typical climate in your area.
