Why Your Home Needs Aerolite Insulation

According to the new SANS building legislation, all new homes must have compliant thermal Insulation installed above the ceiling. As a result, all homes must include compliant thermal Insulation to reduce the house’s risk of heat loss and gain.

  • Firstly Insulation reduces indoor temperature by as much as 5 – 8 degrees in summer and winter.
  • Think Pink Aerolite is not combustible. Importantly Aerolite Insulation is the only South African-made insulation with a class A/A 1/1 Fire rating.
  • Insulated homes will recover the ceiling insulation cost in under three years on energy savings alone.
  • Glasswool Insulation Think Pink has excellent acoustic insulation properties with an NRC 1.1 (Noise Reduction Co-efficient).
  • The new Aerolite Insulation is bio-soluble and will outlast the lifespan of most new homes.

Aerolite Improves Indoor Temperature by 5-8 Degrees

Homes insulated with Aerolite insulation will block 90% of all heat gain or loss in the roof space. Installing Think Pink directly on the ceiling stops the hot air build-up in the roof space from entering the home.

SUMMER Benefits: For example, the 135mm Aerolite Insulation will improve indoor temperature by at least 5 degrees, blocking the heat in the roof space from entering the home. As the sun’s heat builds up during the day, the Think Pink stops as much as 90% of the heat from making contact with the ceiling. Importantly using an Air-conditioner will be far more cost-effective as the unit will work more effectively at a fraction of the cost. We are ensuring a reduction in energy costs.

WINTER Benefits: We all know that hot air rises. Therefore homes insulated with Think Pink will use far less energy for heating and cooling.

 One can expect an indoor temperature improvement of 5 – 8 degrees in homes without air leakage. Fitting 135mm Aerolite Insulation on the ceiling will reduce heat loss via the ceiling by as much as 90%.

Is Aerolite Safe For Your Home

Did you know the new Aerolite Ceiling Insulation is the most advanced Insulation? The answer is yes; Aerolite is the safest Insulation for your home.
