ThinkPink Aerolite - Smart Homes Thirty-five percent – that’s the amount of energy lost and gained through the ceiling in a typically uninsulated home. Products like ThinkPink Aerolite play a major role in reducing this percentage, dramatically slowing down heat loss or gain and contributing to thermal comfort and reduced energy bills. Thirty-five percent – that’s the amount of energy lost and gained through the ceiling in a typically uninsulated home. Products like ThinkPink Aerolite play a major role in reducing this percentage, dramatically slowing down heat loss or gain and contributing to thermal comfort and reduced energy bills. It works by providing a high resistance to the flow of temperature and sound through the building envelope of your home and this limits the impact of the outside temperature and noise variations helping to maintain a stable and comfortable living environment. Plasterboard together with ThinkPink Aerolite installed in a ceiling will maintain a comfortable temperature inside your home by creating a heat flow barrier between the roof tiles and the ceiling. Enhancing thermal properties means that your home will be warm in winter and cool in summer, which is not only important for health, well-being and productivity at home, but it’s environmentally friendly as well (and we all know that environmental sustainability is a hot topic right now). As temperature differences are reduced, less energy is required and your home will become more energy efficient, which will lead to reduced electricity costs over the long run. But that’s only one benefit of ceiling insulation and most people don’t realise there are a host of other significant advantages: Quieter: exceptional acoustic insulation properties mean that noise from outside is reduced and inside noise is absorbed, making home interiors quieter and more acoustically comfortable. Safer: ThinkPink Aerolite, which has been on the market for 65 years, is the most tried and trusted insulation available. It has zero health risks: made from glasswool, it is certified as non-combustible, won’t burn or create smoke, has no toxic fumes, contains no asbestos and is bio-soluble. More economical: it takes two years for ThinkPink Aerolite to pay for itself in money saved on energy, and then continues to save money in years to come. In a world where monthly living expenses seem to spiral, anything that actively saves money and contributes to a more comfortable indoor environment is a winner. Friendlier: in a world where climate change is a reality and more attention is being paid to environmental issues, the product has many sustainability credentials – it uses less energy to cool and heat buildings, the factories in which it is manufactured are CFC and HCFC-free, and it is made from 80% recycled glass. Easier: the insulation blankets are easy to install. The product is supplied in compression-packed rolls, available in a range of thicknesses, and is simply laid on top of an existing ceiling. When looking at insulation for your home or office, the most important aspect to consider is its performance. Will it consistently provide the required resistance to the passage of heat throughout its lifetime? It’s also important to consider how easy the material is to install, as this affects the ultimate performance of your home insulation. Can it be installed, for example, without any gaps between strips of material, and can it be used over joists or rafters? Any gaps allow for the passage of air, which reduces the overall efficacy of the insulation. Lastly, it’s simple to install during construction or as a retrofit, even more reason to embrace the benefits of a ceiling that works hard to maintain optimal comfort levels.
