Insulation FAQ's

The amount of insulation you need will depend on the type of property you have and if you have any pre-existing insulation in place. Please refer to our blog for complete information on the amount of insulation you need for lofts, roof, walls and other areas. 

To calculate the quants you need to know the area you must cover in square meters. Measure the length and width of the area and multiply them to get the square meters.

A standard PIR board will be 2.88sq.m. If you requirement is say 50 sq.m, you will need 18 sheets of PIR insulation (50/2.88 = 17.36 ~ 18 sheets)
 

The insulation material you choose should always be based on application. If you are unsure of what insulation material to use where, please contact us over the phone or email and we will be more than happy to help you out.
 

When you insulate your home, you basically stop the loss of heat through roofs, walls, floors etc. This converts to a more energy-efficient home and reduced energy bills. Please refer to our blog to know all the benefits of insulation.

Conduction, convection and radiation are the 3 modes through which heat transfer happens. Insulation acts as a barrier and prevents heat transfer from all three mechanisms. Please refer to our blog to know more.

PIR insulation is made of polyisocyanurate or rigid polyiso foam, EPS and XPS insulation is made of a plastic called polystyrene. So, in general, insulation can be made of many materials, but the ones used more commonly are made of fibreglass or mineral wool

Insulation saves money and energy. By trapping the heated air insidie a facility, insulation reduces energy bills whilst maintaining comfortable indoors. Please refer to our blog for more information on the benefits of insulation.

Insulation can be used anywhere. Insulation materials are used to insulate walls, roofs, lofts, floors, pipes and even valves.
