A 6 or 7 Star Energy Rating is the most common path taken to meeting the energy efficiency requirements of the National Construction Code (NCC) when building or renovating a home. A star rating correlates to the amount of energy required to heat and cool a home to an acceptable level of comfort, with insulation being a major contributing factor.
Insulation acts as a barrier to heat flow, which in turn will allow for a smaller air-conditioner, running for less time, or even eliminating the need for heating or cooling. A well-insulated home can greatly reduce your cooling and heating bills and provide a comfortable place to live.
There are many types of insulation to consider when you are constructing or renovating your home. Rigid board insulation is increasingly gaining popularity in the residential building industry as it can be installed continuously. A continuous insulation reduces thermal bridging, offering the greatest level of long-term value, thermal performance and comfort to your home.
Kingspan Insulation offers an extensive range of high performance rigid thermoset phenolic insulation solutions to match any roof, wall or floor across many construction types, many of which are designed to be installed in the building internally. This allows for an uninterrupted and speedier install, thereby reducing labour costs.
Whether you are constructing a new home or renovating an existing one, the insulation you choose will have a direct impact on providing year-round comfort and reducing your energy bills.
