Get The Best Out Of Your Isotherm
The Isotherm Ceiling Insulation is the best investment for any homeowner. Let’s look at some ways to help you get the absolute best out of your insulation. Not all homes have double glazed windows, this would be first prize. Let us look at homes that have air leaks, now this is a problem in winter. It is one thing having your Insulation installed but you don’t want cold air coming into the home.
Try and seal all windows and doors from air leakage. Wooden windows must be revamped or us rubber seal to stop the cold air entering the home. Also, long door sealers can be fitted to the base of the doors to prevent cold air blowing into the home. On very cold days if you have very heavy curtains that are great as they will act as an insulation against cold windows. Keep all window curtains drawn so that the warm air is not lost to the cold window.
Of course in summer if you are out close curtains in rooms where the sun will shine through to get the best results. When you get home open windows and allow a draft through the home. All unwanted heat will follow the path of least resistance and flow out of the home.
Isotherm Fire Rating
In fact, this insulation will not burn as this roof insulation has a BB/1/2 fire rating. The means that the insulation will not sustain a flame.
In fact, even if you put a blow torch to Isotherm it will still not be able to sustain a flame. In fact in most cases even if an electrical wire is burning in the roof space.
Insulation will help reduce the risk of fire making the home safer.
Reduce Condensation With Thermal Insulation
In fact, condensation is a big problem in many of the older homes in the Cape Town area. It is a known fact that the Cape area with its strong winds and driving rain is very cold in winter. This is, unfortunately, where condensation starts to play a big role.
How can we reduce the impact of condensation in our homes? Firstly start with a thick layer of this Thermal Insulation laid flat on the ceiling. This will help reduce the cold air entering the home. Secondly, seal all windows from allowing cold air into the home. Thirdly install heavy curtains and make sure they are closed properly at night. As a result condensation and mould on the ceiling will be reduced substantially.
Making the home warmer in winter and giving the family a much healthier home to live in. For homes with serios condensation and mould problems we recomend installing whirlybird roof ventilators to remove cold air damp from the roof space in winter.
What if Isotherm Gets Wet?
No big deal if Isotherm gets wet. The insulation is manufactured from PET plastic bottles. If the insulation gets wet it will not get moldy and need to be replaced in most cases.
Unlike paper insulation (Cellulose) this insulation does not absorb and hold water. The first warm day the ceiling insulation will dry naturally. If not remove and put in the sun for a few days and refit.
Will the insulation lose its insulation properties after being wet? Absolutely not. However, as soon as the insulation is dry all will be back to normal. If you find that the piece that was drenched. Remove the wet piece of insulation and lay it down to dry in a warm place.
Does Not Support Vermin
In all my years of installing Roof insulation, we have never seen the effects of rats nesting in this insulation. In fact, the high tensile strength and also a high density could be the reason. This insulation is almost impossible to tear along the length.
Most homes were we remove insulation because of rat infestation it is usually found in the finely shredded paper insulation products like cellulose fiber.
How Does Isotherm Thermal Insulation Work
- The Isotherm, when laid correctly, will reduce heat flow out of the home in winter by up to 90% through the ceiling into the roof.
- Remember warm air rises and with no insulation, the heat is lost to the roof space.
- So if you are using any form of heating you are burning money.
- On the other hand in summer your roof space is like a furnace.
- The ceiling temperatures in a home can reach up to 50 degrees this is like underfloor heating but above your head in summer.
- The Isotherm Insulation will keep your ceiling space cool so you will benefit by 4 to 8 degrees depending on the heat of the day.
- The Isotherm Insulation is fitted directly against the ceiling boards in the roof space.
- Please note the roof insulation must lay flat on the ceiling between the main beams.
- The Isotherm must never be laid over the beams as this will make your home hotter in summer and colder in winter.
- The reason for this is that the heat in the roof space is pressure and when the insulation is laid over the beams the hot air simply fills this gap and gets trapped.
- In fact, any insulation not installed properly is a waste of money.
- However, if Isotherm Thermal Insulation or any insulation is installed incorrectly you have just tossed good money out of your window.
