What are the benefits of insulating my property?

There are many benefits of insulating your property:
1.Insulation regulates the temperature inside your home/office. It keeps the place hotter in winters and cooler in summers (to some degrees).
2.Insulation helps you save money on energy bills. Because now you need lesser energy to maintain the temperature inside as the heat/cold is trapped inside your property instead of escaping outside.
3.Also, it reduces noise levels inside the property. It reduces unwanted sound from both inside and outside the property.
4.Lastly, proper insulation can also save your ceilings from condensation and mould formation.

Shepparton Insulation can tend to all your insulation needs in the best possible manner. You can call our customer care anytime and request for free consultation and quote.

Should I install insulation even if I have a solar PV system installed?

Yes, you must. A solar PV system is a good investment and saves you from high energy bills while making the city greener. And good insulation will help decrease the payback period of your solar PV system. It is an ideal way to go green.

How does insulation work?

Insulation works on the principle that air is a lousy conductor of heat. For example, if you are using glasswool batt insulation. It is made of glasswool fibres, and it has tiny holes within the fibre, and these holes, filled with air, restrict the flow of heat through them. Thus, your house is warmer in winters and colder in summers.

Another way these batts prevent the heat flow is that the heat escapes through the cracks/holes in the walls/ceilings of your property. The insulation covers these. Thus the warmth/cool of the house does not escape outside.

Thus, insulating your house saves you from insane energy bills. So, call Shepparton Insulation to get a free consultation and quote.

Can insulation help me save money?

Definitely, yes. But how much money is dependent on many factors. Namely:
1.The size of your house
2.R-value of your insulation
3.The temperature of the city, etc.

Although, on average, the total cost of insulation is recovered within three years on installation. Indeed, the Shepparton insulation industry is helping the city become greener.

We have completed many class-in-itself projects with expertise and will be glad to do that for you again.

How long will the insulation installation take?

How long the installation will take depends on the quantity of work. For example, a wall insulation installation work takes lesser time than a more complex project.

But, once we start the project, we complete it in one go. And we try to complete it as soon as possible without compromising on quality. We strictly adhere to Shepparton’s insulation industry standards while working on the project.

Is the work completed as one continuous process or in chunks?

We know that insulation installation affects your daily routine. Also, installation done in chunks leads to further waste of time and money.
Also, we want to make the insulation work as convenient as it is possible for you. Thus, we complete the project as one continuous process. Also, we complete it as soon as possible as long as the quality is not affected.

No project suffers due to another one. We at Shepparton Insulation schedule our projects in such a manner that no projects come in between another.

Once the quote is accepted, how long does it take to start the work?

Once the quote is accepted, we start the preparations for the project. Also, smaller projects take shorter time slots and can be fit into the schedule quickly. While the more complex projects need bigger time slots and thus can take some time to start.

But as is our policy, once the project starts, it is completed as a continuous process. Shepparton Insulation believes in timely execution and quality work. So, your installation will start as soon as possible and will be completed in the best possible manner.

What do you mean by R-value?

The R-value tells you the insulation power of a material. It tells you the amount of resistance it will give to the heat flow through the material. Thus higher the R-value, the better will be the insulation. Lower the R-value, lower the insulation.
The R-value depends on mainly three factors:
1.The type of material
2.The installed weight per square foot
3.And lastly, the thickness
You should study the R-value of all the insulating materials you are considering and then finally weight them against the cost and choose your ideal insulation material.
Good insulation benefits you for many years to come.

We are a transparent entity of the Shepparton insulation industry and believe in discussing all the points open-endedly before a quote. Consult with our consultants and choose how to make your ideal investment.

What is the total R-value?

So, firstly we need to know that the ideal R-value for the walls, ceilings, and floors are different. So, the R-values of the insulating material of all these three combined give you the total R-value.

The ideal R-value for each of these three depends on many factors, and you can always look up the ideal range on the government’s site. Or you can always request Shepparton Insulation to inspect your property.

Our experts can help you understand the insulation of your property in a better way and how you can proceed further.

How much insulation is necessary for me?

The amount of insulation that you should get installed depends on a variety of factors:
1.The climate of your city: It is one of the most critical factors. If your city has extreme climatic conditions, you need higher R-value insulation. While if you have more moderate temperatures, then a lower R-value can also work.
2.The age of your property: Older buildings tend to need more insulation than the newer ones.
3.The part of the building you want to insulate: Usually, you do not put as much insulation in the attic as you put in your bedroom or drawing-room.
The experts at Shepparton Insulation will guide you on the necessary steps you need to take to insulate your property.

Should I insulate my attic too?

And the straight answer is, yes. There are many reasons why you should insulate your attic too. First of all, it will increase your home’s value. Secondly, it will add on to your energy bill savings. And lastly, it will make your home a more comfortable place to live in. Therefore, it is a good idea to insulate your attic. Many companies, including Shepparton Insulation, provide attic insulation services in Shepparton.

Is insulation fire-safe? If yes, which materials are fire-safe and how much?

Nowadays, insulation is fire safe, but not all materials are fire-safe. Let’s see which materials are safe and how much:
Mineral wool and Fiberglass insulation: These are entirely fire-safe because they are non-combustible and cannot catch fire.
Spray foam insulation: It catches fire at and above 370 DegreeCelcius.
Cellulose insulation: Definitely, it is combustible. But once 20% of its weight of retardants are mixed in it, then its chances of catching fire are reduced.
So, consult with our consultants at Shepparton Insulation for the ideal insulation material for your needs.

Does insulation help in reducing the chances of mould growth and condensation on the ceilings?

Yes, proper insulation can reduce the chances of mould formation and condensation on your ceilings.
A couple of things that will further reduce such things are proper ventilation and reducing humidity levels of the room.
Insulation installed while adhering to the Shepparton insulation industry can help the situation, but individual results may vary.

Can insulation reduce sound levels also?

Yes, insulation can reduce sound levels inside.
The insulation can help reduce sound coming from outside the house. Also, it can reduce sound from one floor to another and one room to another. The sound reduction depends on which areas of your house you have installed insulation on.

NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) and STC (Sound Transmission Coefficient) tell how much sound any material will block or allow respectively.
Proper insulation installation in line with the Shepparton insulation industry can help reduce sound levels, but many other factors play a role in this. Like, the amount of noise inside and outside the house, the material used, and the amount of insulation installed, etc.

How is wall insulation installation done?

Wall insulation installation can be done in three ways: First from inside, second from outside, and last between two walls.
Insulation installed between two walls is called blow-in insulation and can be done only in double brick cavity walls. In blow-in insulation glasswool treated with silicone is injected between two walls. It provides excellent insulation, but the only drawback is that it can be used only in double brick cavity architecture.
For more information on wall insulation installation, consult any Shepparton Insulation consultant.

How is theunderfloor insulation installation done?

In underfloor insulation installation, we staple or strap the insulation against the floorboards. Thus, the heat or cold does not escape, and the temperature of your property stays maintained.

Proper care is taken while strapping/stapling the insulation so that it does not come out before completing its life. With Shepparton Insulation the best quality workmanship is guaranteed and to know more please get in contact with our customer care, and one of our consultants will answer all your questions.
Our consultation and quotes are completely free.

Should I keep the previously installed insulation or take it out?

And the straight answer is, keep it. With insulation, it is the more, the better. So, the next query that comes up is, my joists are level with the current insulation. Then also, no need to worry. You can install the new layer on the right angles to the previous insulation.
And for more queries, get in touch with one of our consultants.

So, no need to pull out your existing insulation just add the new one on top of it. Also, every area has its own R-value, recommended by the government. Ask your Shepparton Insulation consultant for the R-value of your area and get the right amount of insulation done in your property.
