Thermal and Acoustic Insulation Batts for New Zealand Homes

Thermal & Acoustic Insulation

During the summer thermal insulation acts as a barrier to keep the heat out. During the cooler winter months the same thermal insulation helps to prevent heat loss. This makes your home energy efficient, saving up to 40% in your energy costs and making your home comfortable all year round. Up to half of the energy we use to heat or cool our homes can simply leak out without thermal insulation.

Save money with a cheap insulation solution

Thermal insulation segments are the cheapest solution for saving money on your energy bills. There are a number of different types of thermal insulation segments, including underfloor insulation, ceiling insulation and external wall and internal wall insulation.

Thermal insulation helps to:

+ reduce reliance on heating and cooling systems
+ save money on your energy bills
+ improve your comfort at home
+ protect the environment and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by lowering your energy consumption.

How should you be insulating your house?

A well-insulated home is insulated using a combination of insulation products. Find out which products are suited best for insulating your home.

Ceiling insulation

Insulating the ceiling with thermal insulation segments can save up to 45 percent of your heating and cooling energy consumption. Veranda roofs should also be insulated, as this affects the space below and the temperature inside. The ceiling insulation segments are placed between the ceiling batons and can generally be installed at any time both during and after construction. View the D.I.Y. page for good tips on how to effectively install different ceiling insulation types.

External Wall insulation

Insulating the walls with thermal insulation segments can reduce up to 15 percent of the heating energy consumption in the winter months. The best time for a cheap wall insulation installation is at the time of construction or during a renovation. Insulating a home after construction is a much more costly project as this requires the replacement of your plasterboard which should only be done by a professional.

Internal Wall insulation (Acoustic)

Consider soundproofing your home with acoustic insulation segments as noise can disturb the peace in your home. Acoustic insulation segments provide the perfect solution for soundproofing a room or your entire home. There are various sound proofing insulation segments that can effectively reduce noise transfer by up to 75% to create a quiet and peaceful home. Acoustic insulation can easily be installed in the internal walls in the home or mid-floor in a double story home to reduce or even eliminate unwanted noise. Click here to read our blog post about insulating theatre rooms.

Underfloor insulation

Insulating the floor with underfloor insulation segments can save up to 5 percent of your winter heat energy consumption. Depending on what kind of floor insulation you decide to use, you may also need to order strapping or stapling accessories to hold the underfloor insulation segments in place.
