With today’s emphasis on saving energy (which includes saving of money) and for some, our environment, insulation has become foremost in our minds. Even if we are just interested in saving money or increasing our comfort we do contribute to reducing carbon emissions into our atmosphere.
In this article we are going to discuss underfloor insulation which may not been thought of by many people who mainly think of roof insulation or wall insulation. Underfloor insulation may not be effective for all types of buildings but if you have floors that are raised whether wooden or concrete. (concrete in a modern multi-storey building where acoustic problems may occur without it especially in apartments).
With the ever rising prices of heating, underfloor insulation can become a boon for comfort and energy saving, especially if you have wooden floors. Some people say, “I have thick carpets to prevent this”. But hey! we live in Australia where we have to think of heat as well. There is nothing better than the feel of a cool floor under your feet during heat waves notwithstanding that with underfloor insulation, cooling heat loss and air-conditioning loss is prevented.
Effective underfloor insulation can reduce energy and heat consumption and also provide a more sustainable property. The most effective method of home insulation or commercial insulation today is using polyurethane spray foam insulation. Sprayfoam Solutions contractors are experts and will guarantee your house is in the peak condition as far as insulation is concerned. The products supplied by SprayFoam Solutions for underfloor insulation are perfect for insulating against draughts and water ingress as well as additional benefits such as noise reduction, air tightness and is of high quality and durable over a period of time.
Using traditional insulating products like batts or panels can be difficult to install without plenty of clearance under the floor. Batts have to be strapped to the underfloor and so do panels or they have to be nailed. You will find it surprising when requesting a quote that spray foam insulation can be installed with much less clearance. Apart from this, there is normally a lot of utility infrastructure under a house that makes it difficult to effectively seal off quite a bit of the underfloor area. Using spray foam insulation it is easy to fill those awkward gaps.
