What is insulation and why does my home need it?
While many things make a happy home, when it comes to the health of your home, there is one very important and often overlooked aspect - insulation. But what exactly is insulation and why does your home need it? We look at what makes an insulated home healthy and why insulation is one of the most important and cost-effective investments you can make.

A warm, quiet sanctuary
When you have a family member who is sound-sensitive, a quiet retreat is vital. For the Taylors of Lower Hutt, having Insulmax® installed in their 1940s home provided exactly that. Not only does their young daughter have a much-needed calm space, but their home is warmer and cosier too. Read more about their transformative story here.
Transforming My 1950s Weatherboard Home with Insulmax®
When my husband and I first considered insulating our 1950s weatherboard home, we were seeking a solution that was effective yet non-invasive. We previously renovated a few rooms with pink batts, but we were eager to try something less intrusive. Our friends had raved about the difference Insulmax® made on their power bills over the winter, so we thought, why not?
Bring on Winter!
Brian Copeland’s 1950s Rotorua home was typical of many from that error. In a word… cold! Clad in weatherboard and brick, the 160m2 house had served as a rental for 20 years and was now Brian and his partner’s first home.
No more wiping down wet walls
Fleur Daniels and her husband thought they’d done everything possible to warm up and dry out their Tauranga home. Built in the ‘50s with brick cladding, their 109m2 home was a classic example of a cold, damp Kiwi home. And, despite replacing their roof, installing insulation in the floor and ceiling, installing a heat pump, a fireplace, and a heat-transfer ventilation system, the couple were still having major moisture issues.
