For Home OwnersDo You Want the Warm Wall Feel of a New Home?
Warm, healthy homes start with blown insulation. If cold or damp are words you’d use to describe your home or if you’re tired of high heating bills, insulation is a major part of the solution. While heating solutions seem like the answer, reducing the amount of heat escaping from your home is the most cost effective way to get an energy efficient, warm, dry home. After all, you are paying for the heat that is being lost from inside your home. As one of our customers put it “Heating a home without complete insulation is like trying to catch water in a sieve.”
How much have your heating bills increased over the last five years? Do you think the cost of heating next year is will be less? The choice is simple. Invest in insulation once and add value to your home or pay higher heating bills forever and end up with a worn out heating appliance! Either way you’ll be paying the cost for insulation whether you install it or not.
The 5 Stages to a Warmer More Comfortable Home
1. Pre- assessment of your home to ensure your home gets the full benefit of Insulmax®
2. Premium European blown mineral fibre insulation is prepared for installation
3. All wall cavities located and accessed by very small 16mm (10 cent coin sized) holes before being completely filled with Insulmax® blown insulation
4. Exterior cladding finished and left durable and weathertight
5. A final check with infra - red thermal imaging ensures that the wall is completely insulated
Why Wall Insulation?
A typical 100 square metre home has about 80 square meters of exterior wall. So, it’s no surprise that walls loose about 20% – 30% of the heat lost from a home with no insulation. Once the ceiling and floor are insulated the percentage heat loss through the walls increases dramatically. All homes built since 1974 have been built with some level of wall insulation so we’ve been aware of the benefits for decades.
When your older home is completely insulated, including outside walls, your home will be more energy efficient and so a lot warmer and mold growth won’t be supported, because it’s drier. Heating bills will be less and your home will be quieter. You will have the warm wall feel of a newer home with the charm and character of an older home!

Insulmax® blown blanket mineral fibre ceiling insulation is blown into all voids and crevices of your roof space as well as completely covering roof timbers.
Conventional ceiling insulation can be difficult to install without gaps and joins. Roof timbers should be covered to reduce heat loss through them. Insulmax® ceiling insulation can be installed in any suitable ceiling and is the ideal solution for low pitch roof structures and skillion (flat roof) designs. Insulmax® ceiling insulation is a water resistant, high quality, soft white mineral wool manufactured to insulate roof spaces.
The blown blanket insulation system of Insulmax® insulates the entire ceiling and fills all corners and crevices with no voids or gaps, making it more effective than conventional segment or blanket products. Installed at almost any thickness, we can suit your individual requirements of insulation R rating and budget.
Some downlights, transformers and other heat sources cannot be covered by insulation. Our process identifies these and achieves recommended practices of clearances. Insulmax® ceiling insulation is compatible with all heat transfer and heat recovery systems.
