Earthwool Underfloor Insulation
Earthwool® Underfloor insulation with a wind-wash barrier provides a superior solution for improving the thermal performance of timber frame floors. The wind-wash barrier provides protection from air movement under the floor. Adding to the already easy to handle and install qualities of Earthwool®, the insulation can be stapled in place. Earthwool® Underfloor insulation will improve the thermal comfort and energy efficiency of the building in which it has been installed thus keeping it cool in summer and warm in winter. Super-soft to handle and install, Earthwool® is made using up to 80% recycled glass and with ECOSE® Technology, a sustainable, bio-based binder that contains no added formaldehyde.
Benefits of underfloor insulation
Underfloor insulation can provide numerous benefits to homes and buildings. It helps to keep the interior space comfortable by preventing heat from escaping during the winter months and keeping it cool during the summer. Additionally, underfloor insulation can significantly reduce energy costs by reducing the need for heating and cooling. It also helps to improve indoor air quality by reducing drafts and preventing moisture buildup, which can lead to mold and mildew growth.
The importance of a wind-wash barrier
A wind-wash barrier is an important component of underfloor insulation, as it helps to prevent air movement under the floor. This barrier acts as a shield against drafts, ensuring that the insulation remains effective. Without a wind-wash barrier, the insulation can become compressed, reducing its thermal performance.
The benefits of using recycled materials
Using recycled materials for underfloor insulation, such as the Earthwool® product, can have a significant environmental impact. By reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills and decreasing the need for new raw materials, recycled insulation can help to conserve natural resources. Additionally, Earthwool® uses up to 80% recycled glass, which makes it an eco-friendly choice for homeowners and builders.
The ease of installation
Installing underfloor insulation can be a straightforward process, especially when using products such as Earthwool® that are designed for easy handling and installation. The insulation can be stapled in place, making it a convenient choice for homeowners and builders alike. Additionally, Earthwool® is super-soft to handle, making it easy to work with and install.
The impact on property value
Installing underfloor insulation can also have a positive impact on the value of a property. By improving the energy efficiency of a home or building, the installation of underfloor insulation can make it more attractive to potential buyers. Additionally, the reduced energy costs associated with underfloor insulation can make a property more desirable, leading to an increase in its value.
