What is Aerolite?
It is a superb ceiling insulation material that is pink in color and has acoustic properties. Usually bonded with an inert Thermosetting resin, the final product (Aerolite) is made available in compression packed rolls.

As a result, Aerolite has helped to promote energy efficiency among homeowners by eliminating the need for running heaters and AC machines all day and night to keep the interior of the house warm (winter) and cooler (summer).
The Higher R-value of Aerolite Means Better Thermal Resistance
R-value refers to a measure of how well an insulating material can resist the conductive flow of heat. Popularly known as the Thermal Resistance of an insulating material, it takes into account the following factors:
The thickness of the insulating material as well as density. Take note compressing the Aerolite will reduce the R-value to the compressed value.
When it comes to thermal insulation – the wonder acoustic Ceiling Insulation material – this value measures the ability of the insulation material to resist the flow of heat.
For better performance, it’s highly advisable to select Think Pink Aerolite insulation with a higher R-value. As a result, you and your family will enjoy the following benefits: Improves your indoor experience by absorbing noise from inside and outside your home.

The presence of the whiskered intruders in your ceiling poses a health hazard to your family. Not only will your family be prone to infections but the infections will escalate to disease.
Unlike traditional insulating materials, Glass-wool stops the whiskered intruders in their tracks. It can achieve this by providing a poor breeding environment for the critters. Besides, the use of glass wool together with the Thermosetting resin is not a good source of food for them.

Secondly there are many health benefits to having quality insulation installed in the roof space. So how will there be a health benefit in the home with insulation?
As we know Aerolite acts as a barrier between the freezing cold in winter and the extremely hot summer days. Installing Aerolite improves indoor temperature 4 – 8 degrees in summer and winter. As a result of the more even temperature the average cold or flue is kept at bay.
When it is freezing cold out. We most certainly don’t go out in the cold under dressed as we end up in the doctors rooms sooner rather than later. The same applies to your home. Keeping a more moderate even temperature reduces the potential for allergies and flues and colds.
Install Roof Insulation Correctly Or Throw Money Away
As mentioned earlier on this page Roof Insulation Installed incorrectly is wasted money. Installing the insulation directly on the ceiling space between the main beams is essential. In fact, all Roof Insulation must be fitted directly on the ceiling between main beams. The entire roof space must be covered.
Do not install the Insulation following the roof pitch. In fact, installing insulation following the roof pitch will give a nice cool roof space but almost no benefit in the home.
However, this does not apply to what is referred to as a flat roof.
Install Roll Form Roof Insulation
Installing roll form insulation in your ceiling space makes sense as the insulation covers the entire roof. The main reason why we recommend roll form insulation is that this will not get affected by the wind. Roll form insulation is packed tightly between the beams to seal off correctly.
Blown-in loose fiber or cellulose will be affected by winds. In many homes where we remove these insulation types, we find the insulation has moved significantly. In fact, this leaves your home compromised with regards the insulation value. Loose paper or cellulose insulation is difficult to install the correct thickness in the roof space. The reason for this is we have to rely on the eye of the installer blowing the insulation. This, as we know, can’t be an exact science.
Roll form Insulation is a specific thickness and density, so you know what you get for your money. The Thermal insulation products designed for optimum Thermal Insulation benefit. Installing Thermal Insulation without great thermal Insulation properties is a waste of money. All Thermal Insulation products are rated on R-value. In fact the higher the R-value, the better the insulation properties.
