When building a new home or completing alterations and additions to an existing home, it’s likely that you’ve come across the expression ‘6 or 7 Star Energy Rating’. This is because it is the most common path taken to meeting the energy efficiency requirements of the NCC (National Construction Code).
A star rating correlates to the amount of energy required to heat and cool your home to an acceptable level of comfort, with a major contributing factor being insulation. Insulation acts as a barrier to heat flow, which in turn will allow for a smaller air-conditioner, running for less time, or even eliminating the need for heating or cooling in the first instance. A well-insulated home can greatly reduce your cooling and heating bills and provide a comfortable place to live.
There are many types of insulation to consider when you are constructing or renovating your home. Rigid board insulation is one which is gaining popularity in the residential industry, as it can be installed continuously. Having a continuous insulation offers the greatest level of long-term value, thermal performance and comfort to your home by reducing thermal bridging.
Kingspan Insulation offer an extensive range of high performance rigid thermoset phenolic insulation to match any roof, wall or floor across many construction types, many of which are designed to be installed to the internal of the building. This allows for an uninterrupted and speedier install, resulting in less spend on labour costs.
Whether you are constructing a new home or renovating an existing one, the insulation you choose will have a direct impact on providing year-round comfort and reducing your energy bills.
