how does aerolite work

How Aerolite Works

Very simply put Ceiling Insulation acts as a barrier between the hot air in the roof space and the cooler air in the home. Consequently in winter Aerolite reverses this roll to reduce heat loss out of the home. We are well aware of the heat build up in the roof space. As a result of the heat build up in the roof space our ceilings warm up. As a consequence the ceiling temperature increases. The best way to explain this problem is the radiant heat from the ceiling increases internal temperature in the home. As a result Ceiling Insulation will reduce the heat gain by 90% by acting as a barrier.
In winter the home is loosing any heat in the home directly into the roof space. In this case the warm air rises as all hot air does. As a result of the Aerolite acting as a barrier the warm air is trapped in the home. In this manner Ceiling Insulation saves on the need for heating and cooling.
what is aerolite

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.

Making it very easy for installers to cut and install the Acoustic Ceiling Insulation in your home. As this insulation is non-combustible Ceiling Insulation material, it has the highest fire rating classified as A1. Meaning the insulation material will not combust, melt or smoke. Will Not Burn.

Popularly known as Think Pink Aerolite (as a result of its pink color), the insulation material has been used for the last 75 years to insulate homes from the harsh weather elements and prevent heat from escaping the interior of the house.

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.

Traditional insulation materials have been known to be less efficient when it comes to reducing heat or retaining heat in the home.

Also, they act as a source of food for rodents and provide the perfect material for the whiskered intruders to use when making their nests.

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, Aerolite 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.

Aerolite insulation also does not promote or allow the breeding of bacteria, fungi or mold.

Can You Get By Without Installing Roof Insulation In Your Home?

Surely you can get by without installing Insulation in your Roof. However, this will be at a high cost.

Having the correct thickness Insulation installed will mean many years of energy saving for homeowners. In fact, all the Ceiling Insulation products that we stock will have a lifespan of at least 30 years. Therefore, a lifetime of energy saving and home comfort with Aerolite insulation can be expected.

How Does Roof Insulation Work?

In fact, Roofing Insulation is about three main criteria. Let’s have a look at what this means and how this will affect your home. Sticking to these fundamental principles will give homeowners years of energy saving and home comfort.

Roof Insulation R-value

In fact, R-value today is essential. Having a low R-value means having low energy saving.

The higher the R-value, the more effective the insulation properties. R-value is the ability of given insulation to reduce the ability of heat loss or gain.

The higher the R-value, the better the insulation properties will be. In fact, R-value is the ability of given insulation to reduce heat flow in or out.

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. Aerolite Thermal Insulation Makes Sense. The Aerolite 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.

In fact the higher the R-value, the better the Think Pink Aerolite. Think Pink Thermal Insulation is available in thicknesses from 50mm to 135mm.
