Insulation restricts the flow of heat and sound through the walls, ceiling and underfloor. Without home insulation installed, you will lose valuable heat during winter, and gain unwanted heat during summer. This results in higher heating and cooling costs. As insulation lowers your energy bills, it will actually end up paying for itself in no time!
We are your local insulation experts, supplying and installing ceiling, underfloor and wall insulation to homes in Tauranga, Rotorua & Whakatane.
In an uninsulated home, up to 42% of heat is actually lost through the ceiling! This is because warm air is lighter than cold air, so it tends to rise and escape through the roof. Ceiling insulation retains the heat inside the house during winter, and stops heat from entering in through the roof during summer. Due to Bay Energy Solutions’ competitive pricing on ceiling insulation, it is also an extremely cost effective way to reduce your heating bill in the long term.
An uninsulated underfloor loses up to 15% of your home’s heat. When underfloor insulation is properly installed, it will help stop drafts of cold or warm air from entering your home through the floor. This means you can guarantee a more comfortable home and a smaller energy bill. If your home has an accessible underfloor space, insulation can be installed at a relatively low cost. If you are unsure about accessibility or the current state of your underfloor insulation, get in touch to book a free assessment. If you decide to have any underfloor insulation installed, we are currently offering the best prices in town! This means the insulation will pay for itself even faster through the ongoing savings in energy bills.
Walls are the second largest source where heat is lost or gained. Installing wall insulation will ensure your home is kept warmer during the winter, and cooler during the summer. Many people find that wall insulation will actually pay for itself through the energy savings it provides! Our wall insulation pricing is also very competitive, meaning you get all the benefits for a lower initial investment.
We specialise particularly in bulk insulation rather than injected or blow-in insulation. You’ll need to remove the GIB yourself prior to installation, or contact a qualified builder.
Ground Vapour Barrier
A house with a high moisture content is naturally colder and often more expensive to heat. On average, 250ml of water can evaporate from 1 square metre of ground in just 24 hours. A ground vapour barrier (or moisture barrier) provides protection against rising damp, moulds & moisture into the subfloor spaces. This ultimately makes the house warmer and drier. If you are unsure as to whether a ground vapour barrier is right for oyur property, contact us and we can arrange a free assessment and quotation if required.
