Ceiling Insulation

Ceiling insulation is one of the most cost-effective ways of regulating temperatures inside your home or office. Whether you are looking for ways to cool your home in summer or heat your home in winter, ceiling insulation provides a great all-year-round solution.

Costing between R6,000 and R10,000 for the average 200-square-meter home, the cost savings are obvious when considering the rising costs of energy used for heating and cooling the traditional way through airconditioners or heaters.

There are two basic types of ceiling insulations readily available on the market: blown-in or loose-fill, and blanket or mat-type, which usually comes in continuous rolls. While the blanket type is easier to work with for DIY purposes, the loose-fill normally gives better coverage because of its ability to fill hard-to-reach spots and cracks.

You will often find contractors and installers referring to the R-factor or R-value of insulation. This refers to the measure of thermal resistance used in the building industry. Under uniform conditions it is the ratio of the temperature difference across an insulator and the heat flow per unit area through it. The higher this value, the better the insulation.
