Why Retrofit Insulation To Your Home

Retrofit insulation to your home and start saving. Heating and cooling account for 50 to 70% of the energy used in the average home. Inadequate insulation and air leakage are leading causes of energy waste in most homes. Retrofit insulation to your home correctly with designed & fitted insulation:

– Insualtion saves money and our nation’s limited energy resources
– Insulation makes your house more comfortable by helping to maintain a uniform temperature throughout the house, and
– Retrofit Insulation makes walls, ceilings, and floors warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Poorly insulated homes are usually cold & damp in bed and service rooms, with occupants crowded over a heater in one area to keep warm. Homes insulated with a full retrofit insulation system use similar amounts of energy to keep your whole home at a healthy, comfortable temperature. And there’s no more waking up to a freezing room. The world health organisation recommends living in temperatures between 18 – 22 degrees Celsius. We spend more than 90% of our time indoors, and for that reason, the indoor environment and its effect on our health are more important than is often assumed.

Many New Zealand homes share a number of features that can lead to health issues. One of the biggest problems is that our houses are simply too cold. This can lead to dampness, mould and respiratory illness. This is a particular issue with older homes, but not all new ones are exempt.

Make sure your home is well insulated. Once the energy savings have paid for the installation cost, energy conserved is money saved – and saving energy will be even more important as continue to increase. A well installed retrofit insulation system is the best investment people nearing retirement can make in their home.

Warm healthy homes start with insulation. Heating a home without complete insulation is like trying to catch water in a sieve. It does not matter how much money you spend on high heating bills, insulation is a major part of the solution to getting a warmer, more energy efficient home.
