There are many ways to save on your electricity bill, but few are as effective as installing ceiling insulation to improve energy efficiency in your home – it reduces heat penetration in summer and stops heat loss in winter.
Heat flow is a critical element in your energy usage. Heat naturally moves from warmer places to colder places. In winter, the heat produced by a fire or heater will move from the warm home interior into the unheated spaces of your roof, garage or directly to the outdoors. To moderate this energy loss, you will need to keep your heating system on to attempt to make this energy effective in keeping your home’s temperature at a liveable constant. In summer, when the outside temperature is warmer than the interior of the home, heat will flow into your home making your air conditioner work harder to keep the house cool.
With the greatest amount of heat loss occurring through your ceiling, cellulose insulation is an effective solution for preventing thermal transfer. Cellulose insulation is very effective because it fills the roof cavity, sealing off the ceiling envelope; making your house cosier and more cost-efficient as well as more comfortable and healthy for you and your family.
Eskom and municipalities set on continued price hiking of electricity, saving power to save money are becoming more important every day.
Heat is expensive, so saving money by keeping the cold air out and the warm air in should be a priority for all South Africans.
