The Many Types of Construction Contractor

Yo! Welcome to this new blog. Last year, I decided to fix up my home. I had lived in this place for the past 20 years and since I moved in, I haven't really done a thing to it. I decided to do something about it when I arrived home one day and saw how terrible my house looked compared to my neighbour's places. I called in a range of different contractors to replace the roof, repair the walls and paint the interior. I was really pleased with the results and I picked up a lot useful tips which I would like to share with you.

How installing Earthwool insulation can benefit your property

There are a lot of great reasons to consider installing insulation in your home. Most commonly people arrange home insulation to improve the thermal properties of their home, but Earthwool insulation can offer a lot more than that. Earthwool insulation is the latest generation of glasswool and is widely used because of its acoustic and safety properties as well the thermal benefits it offers. Here are four reasons to consider adding Earthwool insulation in your home.

Better thermal insulation

A need for thermal insulation is the most common reason that people arrange for Earthwool insulation. Improving your home insulation will not only let you maintain the temperature of your home at the desired level more easily, but it will also reduce your heating and air conditioning bills by making your home more energy efficient. The greater the temperature difference between the outside and the inside of any building the more rapidly that building will change temperature. This means that a badly insulated building will quickly gain heat in the summer and lose it in the winter. Earthwool insulation helps to stabilise the building temperature by reducing the transfer of heat which occurs by conduction, convection and radiation. 

Improved fire safety

All modern buildings must be designed with fire safety precautions in mind. The materials used in the construction of the building must not only maximise the stability of the structure but also act as a barrier to the spread of fire. The non-combustible nature of Earthwool insulation makes it an ideal material minimise the effect of any blaze which occurs and to aid the escape of anyone who is in the building when the fire takes place.

Greater acoustic insulation

The acoustic properties of Earthwool insulation are one of its most underrated benefits. Insulation has the potential to greatly improve the quality of life for your family by dampening the spread of noise. Insulation can help to reduce the effects of both internal and external noise by cutting down the transmission of noise between rooms as well as stopping the sound of traffic and other external noise reaching those inside the property. A quieter, more peaceful environment can aid concentration and reduce the stress of the occupants.

A healthier environment

Installing Earthwool insulation helps to create healthier environments by stopping the spread of condensation, mould, mildew and air leaks around a property. Well-insulated buildings are healthier buildings, and provide the best environment for healthier, happier people.
