Many types of insulation are there in the market today, but most of them come with serious side effects. Insulation saves your money and provides comfort in a home, and you can’t argue on that. Anyway, on the Internet; you will find thousands of articles on various topics such as (why you shouldn’t do it yourself? Side effects of batt insulation?) just a few examples. Today, I am going to talk about a new insulation material which will make you happy about installing it in your home. We call it the Foilboard Insulation. OK, let’s talk about it later.
Side effects of the batt and other insulation types: Every type of insulation helps us to maintain a comfortable temperature in our homes. But most insulation materials can harm you in many ways. For example, fiberglass insulation can cause lung diseases and allergy/irritations. Blow-in insulation can go everywhere and make it a big mess. Old-days insulation even can kill you as they contain traces of asbestos. Anyway, Foilboard Insulation is a modern creation which is 100% free from asbestos and other risky materials.
Well, I am not underestimating the effectiveness of other insulation types. It is a well-known fact that every insulation can reduce energy bills by 30%. Well, 30% is a big number when it comes to energy-saving. If you insulate your home properly with Foilboard Insulation, then you can save the world from facing an energy crisis in the future. What are the side effects of other insulation types? OK, let’s talk about cavity wall insulation. I can explain it easily with this picture (http://www.staticwhich.co.uk/media/images/trusted-trader/desktop-main/cavity-wall-insualtion-diagram-450333.jpg.) As shown in the picture; when you fill wall cavities with spray-foam insulation; it acts as a barrier to the heat flow. It offers greater resistance to heat transfer, but after a few years; spray-foam insulation can get settled due to gravity which is a complication. Not only spray-foam types, even batt insulation can get settled within the wall cavities after a few years. The Foilboard Insulation, on the other; is an insulating board that doesn’t get settled even after a century.
Advantages of Foilboard Insulation over other insulation types. I would like to highlight top advantages here:
* Easy-to-install (installing a rigid panel is much easier and straightforward than other messy insulation types. You can seal the gaps easily to achieve the highest possible R-value.)
* When compared to bulky insulation types, Foilboard Insulation is a lightweight material.
* No negative effects on health. Fiberglass, Rockwool, and blow-in insulation types can cause health-related issues such as breathing difficulties, lung diseases, skin irritations, itchy nose, irritated eyes, and much more.
* Offers the highest possible R-value at a low thickness compared to other insulation types. The recommended insulation thickness has been increased over the past few decades. Anyway, when considering Foilboard Insulation; you don’t have to worry about thickness. Manufactures produce it with the right thickness to offer greater R-value.
Some final words: Every insulation type can save your money and provide a comfortable environment to live peacefully. Anyway, we can’t ignore the side effects of the batt and blow-in insulation types. Foilboard Insulation is a great alternative to traditional insulation materials.
