Insulation typically doesn’t conduct heat or electricity and comes in all sorts of materials so that it can be used for a variety of purposes. There are certain materials that are known as ‘good’ insulators and others that are known as ‘bad’ insulators. A bad insulator isn’t very good at trapping heat, sound, or electricity; however, a good insulator can do this job easily, and includes plastic, rubber, and wood.

Why Use Insulation?

Insulation will help you keep the desired temperature in your house all year round, protecting it against cold in winter and excess heat in summer. Insulation is also useful to reduce noise pollution. A well-insulated house is very energy efficient and will need very little additional heating and cooling.

Why do houses need insulation?

      Insulation board is a requirement in UK homes to trap the heat that’s created by our boilers, heat pumps and other heating technologies. Without it, we’d be heating our homes and most of this heat would be escaping through the walls, floors, and roof, leaving our homes almost as cold as they were before the heating went on, this is known as heat loss. This would be a huge waste of energy; insulation is needed to prevent this from happening. Usually, it’s located in the loft and in the walls to stop heat from escaping. Installing loft insulation could save you up to 15% on your heating bills, or around £140 per year.

Mineral Wool Insulation

Mineral wool insulation is an insulator that is frequently used in the construction industry and piping industry. Mineral wool insulation is a poor thermal conductor, and it has excellent flame-resistant properties. Mineral wool insulation is also used as an acoustic dampener

Benefits of Mineral Wool Insulation

Mineral wool insulation is used in buildings and structures for several reasons. First and foremost, mineral wool insulation does not conduct heat well. This is important when trying to keep a building warmer or cooler than the outside environment. Since fires are always a concern for buildings, the fact that mineral wool lacks flammability makes it an excellent option as an insulator. Also, mineral wool is an excellent acoustic dampener if noise is a concern when building a structure.
