Best bang for your buck

Case Studies

When Simon moved from the warmth of East Malaysia to Hillcrest, Auckland, he soon discovered that New Zealand winters were a different kind of cold. Despite installing roof insulation and a ventilation system, his 1960s four-bedroom weatherboard home still felt chilly.

Quick, easy, and safe

Noticing how cold the walls were in the mornings, Simon started researching wall insulation options and soon came across Insulmax®.

Simon liked the fact that, unlike solid insulation segments that involve removing interior wall linings, Insulmax® offered a quick, non-invasive, and non-toxic solution.

“The ease of installation was a big factor for us,” he says. “We also only wanted a product we knew would be safe and non-toxic, and Insulmax® ticked that box.”

Cost was another significant consideration. “We’d looked into options like double glazing, but the cost was huge. Insulmax® was much more affordable and offered more bang for our buck,” he says.

Another major plus was that Insulmax® handled all the necessary consents and compliance requirements, ensuring a hassle-free experience. “They took care of everything, which made the decision even easier.”

Done in a day

When the Insulmax® team arrived to install the insulation, Simon was impressed by their professionalism and efficiency.

"They explained the entire process, answered all my questions, and made sure we were comfortable with everything," he says.

Simon had concerns about potential disruptions and the appearance of drilled holes in the weatherboard. However, the team reassured him that the process would be minimally invasive and that the finished work would be tidy.

“The installation was straightforward and quick. The team worked methodically, and by the end of the day, you could hardly tell they had been there,” says Simon.

Big benefits

Simon says the benefits of Insulmax® were immediately noticeable. “The difference in warmth was remarkable. The house felt cosier right away.”

Not only did the insulation make the home warmer, but it also significantly reduced noise. “We live opposite a school, and the mornings used to be quite noisy. Now, it’s much quieter inside the house.”

Simon also noticed a reduction in their energy bills. “Our heat pump doesn’t have to work as hard anymore. The house retains heat much better, and we’ve definitely seen a drop in our power costs,” he says.

Overall, Simon couldn't be happier with the results. “It’s surprising how much difference it makes for the cost and effort involved. Insulmax® was a fantastic investment for us. I’d recommend it to anyone looking to improve their home insulation.”
