Stay cool this summer (and warm in the winter) while keeping your costs to a minimum, thanks to energy-efficient Earthwool® glasswool insulation.
Earthwool® glasswool insulation should be an essential part of your plans, whether you’re building a home or renovating one. If you’re building a new home or planning an extension, you’ll need to meet updated requirements from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) for energy efficiency. The new range of Earthwool® glasswool insulation batts makes it incredibly simple for both tradies and D.I.Y. enthusiasts to comply with the changes to the H1 Building Code. The updates become mandatory in May 2023, so get ahead of the game and start saving energy now.
Earthwool® glasswool is manufactured using up to 80 percent recycled glass and is backed by a 50-year warranty.
Install a single-layer solution in your ceiling that meets the new H1 Building Code requirement for thermal efficiency (listed as an R-value) of R6.6 for ceilings in all climate zones. The new R7.0 Earthwool® glasswool ceiling batt is quicker – and less hassle – to install than two layers of insulation. If you’ve reclaimed the loft as a living space, you’ll need to insulate between the rafters. The new Earthwool® glasswool skillion batt has an exceptionally efficient R7.4 rating and is designed specifically for this purpose.
With Earthwool® glasswool wall batts nestling between the studs of a timber-framed home, you’ll be enveloped in acoustic insulation as well as R4.4 thermal efficiency.
Enjoy fuss-free compliance with updated requirements when you install R2.6 Earthwool® glasswool Floorshield batts. They are made with a wind-wash barrier to prevent air movement under the house from reducing their thermal performance; they also have DriTherm® Technology for extra moisture resistance.
