Expert Roof Insulation Installers
Did you know that 25-35% of your home's heat loss in winter is through the roof? Or that your home gains just as much heat through the roof in the summer months?
Good insulation can reduce this dramatically. Jim's Roofing has expert roof insulation installers who can set this up for you.
It can also help you save up to 50% on your heating and cooling bills! This means you'll be paying less for the running costs of your air conditioners and heaters, as well as helping out the environment!
Jim's roof insulation installers can help you find the best insulation to suit your home. We can even have our roofers at your home within 1 hour* of your call and install it that same day.
Benefits of Insulation
Insulation helps to keep your home comfortable year-round. It prevents heat loss in winter and keeps your home cool in the summer.
There are more benefits of insulation beyond just helping to regulate your home's temperature though:
- Improves energy efficiency of heating and cooling systems
- Reduce your greenhouse gas emissions
- Cut down your energy bills
- Some types provide acoustic insulation
- Moisture and condensation control in your roof space
To enjoy these benefits, it's crucial you have an experienced installer do the job right. Poorly installed roof insulation might have the opposite effect that you're looking for.
Types of Insulation
We can categorise the different types of insulation into two groups - reflective and bulk.
Reflective insulation does precisely as the name would suggest - reflects heat back away from your home and has a low capacity for re-radiating heat that it does absorb. These are collectively called reflective foil laminates (RFLs).
RFLs have a shiny, reflective foil side made from aluminium. This is laminated onto plastic or paper and comes in sheets, called sarks.
This type of insulation performs poorly if there is a build-up of dust on the shiny side. The insulator is installed in your roof space with an air gap between the layers.
Bulk insulation has pockets of air in the material which prevent heat transfer. This insulation type can be made from a variety of materials:
- Glass wool
- Cellulose fibre
Installing insulation will vary depending on what type you are using and the material it is made from. A professional roof specialist will make sure yours is installed correctly and that it will work effectively.
Jim's Roofing specialises in the installation of reflective foil laminates and can improve your home's thermal performance today!
Insulation R Values Explained
When looking into different insulators, you might come across something called the R value. This is a value used to measure an insulator's resistance to heat flow.
The higher the R value, the better its thermal resistance. The installation of your insulation products can also have an impact on R values.
What R value do you need? Well, that depends on a few factors such as your climate. A professional roofing specialist like those found at Jim's Roofing can ensure the installation of your insulation is correct and meets the listed R values, effectively preventing unwanted heat flow in your home.
