Most South Africans enjoy the warmer weather as long as we can put on the fan or aircon when it gets too much. The thing is, load shedding doesn’t allow for that to happen anymore. These days, the power seems to go out right when you need to control the temperature inside your home the most, leaving you all sweaty and irritated with the heat.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to go out and buy the biggest generator you can find to power up all your appliances just so you can cool off somewhat. If you invest in proper roof insulation, the cool air will stay inside and the hot air where it belongs — OUTSIDE.
Is Roof Insulation Really That Effective?
According to research, more than 25% of cool air or heat is lost through a roof that’s not insulated. Roof insulation creates a barrier and is thus an effective solution in reducing this loss significantly, and lowering your heating and cooling bills. Additionally, it may also reduce condensation and lower the likelihood of damp and mold growth in your home.
