Where do I need insulation?

Insulation is all about limiting heat loss and the diagram on the right shows where most of a home's heat is lost when it is uninsulated.

For exisiting homes

The easiest place to start is the ceiling and underfloor since wall insulation requires removing wallboard or drilling holes in your cladding into each wall cavity section.

For new home insulation

Ceiling, wall and underfloor insulation are all required as part of the "H1"thermal calculations for your new home. As building standards are likely to increase - we recommend exceeding the minimum levels in the current building code.

Our Insulation Installers

We have insulation heroes that are prepared to go where most fear to tread. Confined roof spaces and sub-floors are not the most pleasant places to be. They're dirty, cramped areas where is can be difficult to move around let alone install large rolls of insulation.

Out teams are up for it though! They know that they can go home proudly each night knowing they have made one or two families healthier and warmer. We're kiwis, helping kiwis and we love it.

Our installers are professionally trained with the Insulation Association of New Zealand and know what they're doing so that you get a great job every time and they'll clean up after themselves too - leaving only a warmer more energy efficient house for you and your family.

Our customers have said...

Your company has done the insulation for the ceiling and underfloor of my house. The job was very well done. We appreciate what you guys have done for us and our house is much warmer now. I have to say thank you to the salesperson and the workers who put the blanket on. They are awesome. They are all very professional, friendly and helpful.

Friendly couple of installers, didn’t stop once – even when offered a cup of tea, I already feel the difference with warmth in my home so great job well done!

Strowan, Christchurch

Compare Insulation Types in New Zealand

Polyester Insulation Review

Two different names but fibreglass and glass wool as the same thing and there's definitely not a fibre of actual wool in sight.

AttributesPolyester Insulation
Fibres
from:
Recycled and/or virgin PET fibres (from plastic bottles)
Fibres bonded
by:
Permanent heat bonded. Won't shrink or sag over time.
Handling
Safety:
Safe to handle. Like the inner of a pillow or duvet.
Moisture
resistance:
Note: Insulation is not meant to get wet.
Polyester insulation will dry out once the source of moisture is addressed. In the event of a roof leak polyester insulation can usually be dried and reused with no adverse performance.


Summary: Polyester insulation is a soft friendly fibre like clothing, duvets and pillows. Moisture resistant and heat bonded it won't sag over time as the bond will not breakdown. It's also a good option for DIY as it's easier to handle and is long lasting. We range Mammoth polyester insulation.

Fibreglass Glass Wool Review

Two different names but fibreglass and glass wool as the same thing and there's definitely not a fibre of actual wool in sight.

AttributesFibreglass Insulation
Fibres from:
Recycled and/or virgin glass
Fibres
bonded by:
Cured urea extended phenolic resin.
Handling
Safety:
The cut glass fibres can be an irritant for some people. Need to wear safety gloves, overalls and goggles when handling.
Moisture
resistance:
Note: Insulation is not meant to get wet. In the event of a roof leak or similar the product will be severely affected and need to be replaced.


Summary: Fibreglass is the traditional form of ceiling insulation in New Zealand and most people are familiar with Pink Batts. Fibreglass is traditionally used due to its lower cost, familiarity and higher R-value per inch. We range Pink Batts glasswool insulation.

Wool Insulation Review

Is wool the option for insulating New Zealand?

AttributesPolyester Insulation
Fibres from: Wool waste from carpet manufacturers treated for insect resistance.
Fibres
bonded by:
The wool is blended with recycled & virgin PET (polyester) fibres as a bonding agent for the wool fibres to each other.
Handling
Safety:
Safe to handle like polyester insulation.
Moisture
resistance:
Note: Insulation is not meant to get wet. It depends what the wool has been blended with but wool still has some insulating properties when it's wet - just ask a sheep.


Summary: Wool insulation is literally a New Zealand grown solution but is not fully natural. It needs polyester or other resins added to bond the fibres plus pesticides and fire retardants need to be added. Like polyester the R-value range of wool insulation is not as broad as fibreglass and costs quite a bit more.

Polystyrene Insulation Review

We're familiar with polystyrene packaging and rigid sheets of polystyrene are used for insulation underfloor and in concrete slabs for new homes.

AttributesPolyester Insulation
Made of: Expanded polystyrene.
Fibres
bonded by:
na
Handling
Safety:
Safe to handle.
Moisture
resistance:
Note: Insulation is not meant to get wet. Polystyrene sheets are not affected by moisture.
Care
required:
Polystyrene can affect the plastic on electrical cabling over time and so requires a special tape to be used to wrap the wires.


Summary: Polystyrene has been used often in underfloors. They are rigid sheets however and may be a little brittle to work with and get a good fit. They also need brackets to hold the sheets in place as do fibreglass.
