Reduces Heat Transfer = Increased Comfort
Bradford Gold Insulation for the ceiling is designed to reduce heat transfer through the roof of your home, improving your home’s comfort and energy efficiency. The insulation is manufactured from glasswool, and contains millions of air pockets, which resist the flow of air or radiation through the insulation. Unlike other forms of heating and cooling control, ceiling insulation requires no maintenance or replacement.
An R-Value of R3.0 is commonly used in moderate climates, and is fairly effective in reducing the heat and cold transfer throughout the year. The R3.0 is sufficiently thick to enable it to be installed before plaster, providing the timber ceiling joists are spaced at the standard 600mm or 450mm centres. If there will be a delay of more than a couple of days between installing the insulation and the plaster, consider running straps underneath the ceiling joists to hold the insulation securely in place.
