What Home Insulation Options Are Available to Me?

POSTED: 06 August 2018 in Category:

Insulated homes stay cooler in the summer and warmer in winter, lower your energy bills and function as a healthier home by reducing mould and damp. Without a protective layer of insulation around your home you’re losing money and that is where Green Sheep can help. We have the four main insulation products available, to insulate the important areas around your home or rental property. 

Garage Door Insulation

If you have an un-insulated garage door, you are transferring heat and cold to all the rooms that connect with the garage. Insulating the garage moderates the temperature, thereby reducing the energy needed to heat the main home. A warmer garage gives you a place to enjoy hobbies, a children’s playroom or even a man cave. At Green sheep we offer garage door insulation panels that fit snugly to the door, made of New Zealand Sheep’s Wool and binder fibre, and can be installed in just a couple of hours!

Ceiling Insulation

Ceiling insulation is one of the best means to improving your home’s energy efficiency and lowering your power bill. You could be paying as much as 40% more on heating and cooling your home if you’ve overlooked ceiling insulation. At Green Sheep our ceiling insulation is made from 100% genuine New Zealand sheep wool. Our wool is not exposed to synthetic contamination of any sort and is not blended with any other synthetic fibre, ensuring a totally natural product.

Under Floor and Wall Insulation

Effective wall and underfloor insulation can make a big difference to the warmth and health of your home. More than 10% of your home’s heat can be lost through the floor and 24% through the walls. At Green Sheep we offer GreenWool Roll-Form in either white virgin wool or grey recycled wool.  This wool blend contains New Zealand Sheep’s Wool (offering breathability and capability to absorb and release moisture from the surrounding air) and up to 20% polyester which allows the product to be bonded using heat (avoiding the use of glues and resins which are found in traditional insulation). 

At Green Sheep we offer insulation products that are sustainable, natural, non-irritating and non-toxic. Our friendly service is focussed on your needs and we guarantee that you will be completely satisfied with your choice of eco-friendly Green Sheep home insulation.
