What Is Van Insulation and What Does It Do?  

Van insulation is the process of improving thermal insulation in van-converted vehicles to make them comfortable and energy efficient. It is done by covering the interior walls, ceiling, and/or floor with a layer of insulation material. The insulation keeps the air inside the van at a comfortable temperature while preventing heat transfer from the outside environment. This results in a more comfortable living space and reduced energy costs.  

Additionally, van insulation can help reduce engine noise, making it easier to relax or sleep during long trips. Van insulation can also play an important role in providing better soundproofing when listening to music or watching movies in a campervan or recreational vehicle.  

The many benefits of van insulation include:  

  • Regulate temperature  
  • Protect your van and belongings from excess moisture  
  • Increase comfort for you and your passengers  
  • Reduce noise from the road
