Insulating interior walls has the potential to completely transform your home. With a whole range of benefits, it's not hard to see why so many people opt to have their interior walls insulated with insulated plasterboard; that’s if they don’t already! Read on to discover Insulation Kings’ top 5 reasons to insulate your interior walls.
1. Regulate Temperature
Perhaps one of the most obvious benefits, wall insulation helps to keep your home warmer in colder months and cooler during warmer months. Reducing both convective and conductive heat flow by trapping air within the insulation material, insulated interior walls help to regulate the temperature in your home to more comfortable levels.
2. Increased Energy Efficiency
As we continue to see the effects of global warming, more and more people are searching for ways to lower their carbon footprint and live a more sustainable lifestyle. By keeping the warm inside your home, insulation reduces the need for your home to generate any more heat, as much less heat is lost to the outside. This reduces the amount of CO2 emissions produced by your home, and therefore reduces your impact on the planet.
3. Reduced Noise Pollution
Insulation helps to reduce noise pollution by absorbing and dampening sound waves before they can reach our ears. By using insulation, we can reduce the amount of noise that enters our homes, offices, or other places of work. Insulation also works to prevent noise from leaving a building, ensuring that sound waves cannot travel far and wide into your surrounding areas. Check out our KNAUF Sound Panel for more information.
4. Lower Energy Bills
As the need for your home to generate more energy lessens, as will your energy bills. By trapping heat inside, insulation means you can leave your boiler off for longer without your home becoming overtaken by the cold. As a result, your home demands less from your pocket as less energy is needed. This is especially important in the current political climate, as many people turn to ways to keep warmer for less.
5. Prevents Condensation
Proper insulation for interior walls can help prevent condensation by keeping warm air inside the house and allowing cold air to escape through ventilation systems. Water-resistant Insulation, such as our KNAUF Moisture Panel, also acts as a barrier to keep dampness from entering the home from outside sources. With appropriate insulation, air can move freely around the house without causing condensation, as warm air will not be able to meet cold surfaces.
