Presently, the demand for energy has increased resulting in an influx in the cost of energy. It is therefore important that you insulate your home especially the roof to conserve energy. More than 25 percent of heat is lost as it escapes through a roof which is not insulated. installing a roof insulation is the best way to conserve energy in your home. The roof insulation will help you save so much electricity that would have been used to warm your house. During the winter season and the insulated house keeps the heat inside the house and keeps the heat outside during the winter season. Precisely, 15 to 25 percent of the heating costs can be saved by installing a ceiling insulator during the winter season. In the summers, the ceiling insulator can save you more than 30 percent cost of cooling.
The ceiling insulation can either be aerolite insulation or the isotherm insulation. Both Isotherm and aerolite insulation prevent heat loss between the ceiling and the roof thereby making the room temperature warmer when it is winter and cooler when summer comes. By insulating your roof, you will save the finances used to cater for heating and cooling costs and also reduce the emission of greenhouse gas. The thickness of ceiling insulation is dependent on the climatic conditions of a region. Before installing a roof insulation, it is necessary to specify whether heat should be prevented from entering the house or from escaping the house. Aerolite insulation is best in both normal weather and in changing seasons.
It is also important to consider the presence or absence of shading during isotherm insulation. These shading and curtains may block the sun hence creating a heat reversal effect where heat is trapped inside the house. In case a house has moisture problems, the best ceiling to use is the reflective insulation. The Isotherm and aerolite ceiling insulation are effective when soundproofing your quiet office. The type of ceiling insulation used include bulk insulation, reflecvtive insulation and a combination of bulk and reflective insulation. For instance, you can choose “factorylite” which is a combination of aerolite and a reflective insulation, or isofoil which is a combination of an isotherm and a reflective insulation.
Bulk insulation can be used to resist both conducted and conventional heat. The bulk insulation structure traps heat in spite of the direction of heat flow. The types of bulk insulation include the pink aerolite and the isotherm ceiling insulation which are made using glass wool and polyester respectively. Reflective insulators are best in resisting radiant heat flow. The shiny aluminum foil is used in the manufacture of the reflective foil insulation. Effective roof insulation should not have any gaps. A large amount of heat may leak through any gaping holes within the aerolite insulation installer.
