Why All New Homes Should Be Insulated?…. Is This A Con?
As a result of Global Warming and Energy shortages Roof Insulation is now compulsory. All new homes must be insulated with Roof Insulation as per the new building legislation in South Africa. As a result, insulated homes will save as much as 45% in heat loss and gain. In fact, the new bill looks at the brickwork as well as windows in a primary drive to reduce electricity consumption.
Therefore all new homes will be insulated with Roof Insulation products achieving the required R-value for the residential province. Additionally, all window sizes including the thickness of glass have changed. In fact, the brickwork, as well as some critical changes, have been made to reduce the impact of energy wastage.
Why is Energy Wastage a Problem if I can afford the waste of money? Importantly this is not only about the money it’s more about our environment. In fact, Roof Insulation is the major contributing factor in reducing our need for heating and cooling.
How ROOF INSULATION reduces the need for heating and cooling is simple. Correctly Insulated Roofs have an improved temperature of 4 – 8 degrees in summer and winter. As a direct result of the Roof Insulation. Therefore the need for additional energy is reduced substantially.

Why Do Homes Get Cold In Winter?
We all know cold air sinks and hot air rises. So if your home is cold in winter chances are you have no Roofing Insulation. The fact is our Roof Space is the coldest part of the house. Therefore to prevent this, we need to stop the flow of air up or down in the home. Fitting Roof Insulation on the ceiling will reduce heat loss via the ceiling by as much as 90%. Tests have established that insulated homes are more comfortable in summer and winter.
Hot air is energy as a result hot air is moving air. All homes create a certain amount of heat naturally. Thereby, losing the warm air in the house to the cold roof space. The importance of Roof Insulation has only been realised in South Africa in the last few years. The fact is Roofing Insulation will reduce the energy loss via the loft space by as much as 90%. Therefore Roof Insulation is the major contributing factor in energy loss. Improve your temperature in the home by 4 – 8 degrees find out how.
Why Do Homes Get Hot In Summer?
Simply put your home is hot because you have no Roof Insulation. In summer the roof space can reach temperatures in the high 50s and low 60s. The result is the heat build up in the roof space heats up the ceiling and this, in turn, radiates into the home. In fact, one can only compare this to underfloor heating directly above your head. Installing Roof Insulation reduces the heat flow by 90% thereby having a direct impact on home comfort. As a result, correctly insulated have an improved temperature 4 – 8 degrees.
What is The Right Roof Insulation Product For Your Home?
We all have different budgets when it comes to our homes. Therefore we must choose wisely. So let us have a look at what the critical factors are that we must be aware of before Insulating Our Roofs.
- The higher the R-value, the more efficient the insulation properties. To find out more about R-value read this.
- Select Roofing Insulation that has a long lifespan.
- Install only certified Insulation in your roof space. Unfortunately today every Tom Dick and Harry are manufacturing insulation in little mini-factories. Importantly, make sure you choose well know brands that have got many years of R&D and experience in the manufacture of insulation. In most cases, these companies will be stock market listed these companies, therefore, have a lot to lose.
- In fact, the wind in the Cape has a direct result on the effectiveness of your Roof Insulation. Importantly do not insulate your roof space with insulation that will be affected by wind. Loose fill blow in types tends to shift with the wind.
- IMPORTANTLY ask if the insulation absorbs water. Some Roofing Insulation products will absorb water. As a result, when you least expect this, the ceiling will collapse. However, most roll form insulation types do not absorb water like the blow in type paper type.
- ASK ABOUT CHEMICALS IN THE INSULATION. In fact, many homeowners with allergies don’t think about the effect of chemicals in Roof Insulation.
- FIRE RATING: Our homes are our most significant investment. So don’t let your home go up in flames with inferior insulation. Therefore it is vital to install Roofing Insulation that has the best Fire Rating Available. Therefore be aware of the fact that some Roofing Insulation Products have a fire rating based on chemicals.
