How to check up on your already existing home insulation

Insulation is crucial to ensuring that one’s home remains energy efficient when it is cool outside. Winters can be very cold and it is very important to get the insulation right. With the right amount of insulation, one can be assured of warmth being retained in the home despite severe cold outside. And with this, the home can be energy efficient, which is not only good for the individual in terms of capital expenditure, but also good for the environment. Without proper insulation done in the house, the energy present in the house might escape through the ceiling or the attic etc resulting in an extra amount of energy being required to keep the house cool.

What to look for when buying an old house.

Monday, May 16, 2016 4:32:34 PM Europe/London

 

Always examine the state of the external window frames which are great indicators of the state of the house. Check for rotten window frames and any condensation between double-glazed windows which indicate faults and poor insulation. The roof of the house should also be examined as many old homes have roofs which have leaks or cracks and are not properly sealed. Always examine for damp staining, discolorations or any indications of leaks. Next, always check the plumbing g of the house. Check the water pressure in the taps and see if the pipes are insulators. Many old homes also have old radiators, boilers and water tanks which may need to be replaced very soon.

How warm houses change lives

Insulated House


How warm houses change lives

Home insulation is one of the best measures one can take in order to increase energy efficiency and on the other hand, it aids in reducing your monthly utility bills. It is also to bound to make your house warmer, much more comfortable and at the same time reduce its impact on the environment as the process of home insulation is carried out.

Home insulation though mostly associated with providing protection in cold weather works as a barrier for both the seasons-the very hot times and the cold stretches. In the summer time, knauf insulation acts as a barrier and thus does not allow for hot air to enter and the cold air to escape; similarly, in the winter time it traps the hot air in the environment of the house, allowing for the house to say cozy.

Moreover, cheap insulation is low cost to the extent that typically it will pay for its cost in less than a period of five years due to the savings made in the area of energy. Knauf insulation can also be beneficial as far as renting the house or the decision to sell is concerned; the rating that your home receives on an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) will be improved automatically driving up the rent amount or the price of the house.

How to insulate an old cottage

Monday, April 11, 2016 11:18:09 AM Europe/London

Old Cottage for InsulationMany people still prefer to live in their ancestral homes rather than modern and new buildings or houses; though the architecture may be desirable, old cottages can pose the problem of regulating temperature so insulation is typically the answer to combat the issue. Talking of insulation for a cottage, it would require a through and through approach covering wall insulation, floor insulation, attic insulation as well as cavity wall insulation if there is a need.

To make an old dwelling place comfortable enough to live in during the time of extreme temperatures, a suitable choice needs to be made in terms of the insulation materials used. Certain factors need to be considered before working on wall insulation or floor insulation of an old building. The environment and general weather of the region plays a big role as this will point one in the right direction in terms of moisture content and other concerns. The performance of the insulation material plays a big role here since it is inclusive of the R-value, vapor penetrability, and air permeability. Another factor to be taken into account would be the material characteristics such as recyclability, production, extraction, hazardous components and so on. Many individuals and companies now prefer bio-based insulation which is completely natural and made from plants, animals, and other renewable resources.
