How do our Insulation products work?

All our insulation is composed of millions of air cells which are poor conductors of heat. These tiny cells slow down the heat transferring through the insulation, thereby retaining heat and providing a comfortable environment throughout your home.

By installing CosyWall insulation, Jetstream Max or Warmafloor insulation a barrier is created to this heat flow, trapping the heat where you need it most in your home, keeping your family cosy. This means in Summer, the hot air stays out and in Winter, the warm air stays in.

The thicker or denser the insulation, the more it resists heat flow. This resistance is measured by the R-Value and the higher the R-Value of the insulation the better the insulation.

To help you get started and to give you a guide to the products and specifications your home requires please read over our informative specification sheets for each of our wonderful products.

The products we use are the only formaldehyde free, non-combustible, water repellent, durable dry-blown home insulation with a trouble free history since 2002 insulating New Zealand homes.
