If you are planning to invest money for having solar panels, solar water heating, heat pumps or any other green source of energy for your home, the first step you should take is improve your home’s insulation. This will ensure you maximize the use of natural resources and you don't waste energy indirectly. Else, you will end up spending a lot of money buying a very powerful system to cover the energy needs of a badly insulated house.
Insulation is one of the most efficient ways to save energy at home since it keeps it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. In fact, by having insulation building, automatically save you more on electricity bill!
1. Reduce Heat Loss
Building roof and wall plays important roles for the building temperature. The heat absorb almost 80% through building wall, floor and ceiling. A building/home that made from insulation material, definitely tends to help in reducing heat loss. However, the percentage of heat loss reduction are also approximates and depends on geometry of the house (e.g single or double story) and the climate (the colder the climate, the proportional heat loss through the roof reduces, and the proportional heat loss through the floor increases).
2. Stay Comfort
The reduction in heat movement results in a home that is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Insulation also provides a drier environment by preventing condensation. Condensation occurs on the inside surface of a roof or ceiling at any time when the temperature of the surface is at or below the dew-point of the air in contact with it. Insulation raises the temperature on the insulated surface above the dew-point temperature, thus inhibiting condensation. Besides, insulation can also help reduce mould growing on the inside of your walls and ceilings.
3. Reduced Noise Levels
Insulation is an excellent sound absorber. It works by forcing sound waves that travel through it to bounce off the millions of fibres the insulation is made up of. Every disruption to the sound wave causes it to lose energy and the sound becomes quieter. Good insulation will reduce the noise entering your house (traffic, machinery, wind) and the noise created within your house (TV, stereo, children, baby) making your home a quieter place.
4. Save Energy Cost
A typical household of five people spends around $111.24 a year on energy, not including transport. Up to 40% of this energy is used to heat up or cool down your house. Insulating can cut the cost of this heating and cooling by up to 40% depending on such factors as climate, type and size of home. Even if you insulate just your ceiling you can save 20-30% on heating and cooling bills. This is because heating and air conditioning units don’t have to run as hard or as long to achieve the desired temperature in the building. Based on the figures above, achieving a 40% reduction in heating/ cooling costs equates to $66.74 in energy savings per annum.
5. Green Environment
Less energy spent heating and cooling home means less energy required from the power stations that burn fossil fuels to produce electricity. Coal fired generators are one of the biggest contributors to greenhouse gases and are responsible for generating one fifth of a contries total greenhouse gas emissions.
You can choose to insulate your roof, floors, walls, windows and doors. BRD product various type of core material insulation sandwich panel from PU, Rockwool, Glasswool, TPS, EPS and XPS.
