Heat sealed

Insulation works wonders at shielding our homes from winter’s frigid bite, but did you know it’s just as effective against the scorching heat of summer? When it comes to battling the elements, insulation is a major tool in your arsenal, keeping your home comfortable when the outdoors is anything but.

Cool customer

Good quality insulation, like Earthwool®, helps your home retain an even temperature, working as a barrier against the heat of summer as well as sealing it against winter chills. Think of it as being like a force field around your home, keeping you comfortable within, even when the mercury rises.

Earthwool® insulation can also save you money, significantly cutting the amount of energy you pour into running both heating and cooling appliances.  


Spoilt for choice

Choosing the right insulation might seem bewildering, but it’s really very simple; every package of bulk insulation is clearly labelled with an R value, which indicates the thermal resistance of the insulation – essentially, the higher the R value the better! Those in warmer climates might find a lower R value is perfectly adequate to keep their home warm in winter, but there’s no harm in sizing up, so to speak. 

Earthwool® makes life even easier by colour-coding their packs of insulation; green is for ceilings, black for underfloor, and blue is for walls – great for temperature regulation but also for acoustics, an absolute boon if you’ve got bedrooms bordering living spaces. Plus, Earthwool® is backed by a 50 year warranty, so you can be extra confident in your selection.

Do it yourself

If your home insulation is looking shabby or, as with many older homes, is actually non-existent, retrofitting insulation is often a straightforward D.I.Y. job. If you have access to the roof space or the subfloor, or the walls if it’s a new build or extension, putting in Earthwool® insulation is as easy as cutting to fit and pressing into place; just follow the directions. Plus, Earthwool® is made using recycled glass and ECOSE® Technology, a sustainable plant-based binder that contains no added formaldehyde, so you can handle it with confidence.
