Warmer Winters In Winton

Case Studies

In the brisk and biting winters of Winton, near the bottom of the South Island, keeping homes warm is more necessity than luxury. Facing this cold reality, Adam decided it was time to enhance the warmth of his 1950s brick and roughcast home. The poor insulation of the house was further strained by its spacious layout, including four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, making it difficult to maintain warmth.

The idea of wall insulation first crossed Adam's mind after a chat with his sister-in-law, who had recently had Insulmax® installed and was thrilled with the result. Having heard good reports from a few others also, he decided it was time to get it done.

Professional and friendly

Adam says that right from the initial contact, Insulmax® stood out with their friendly service and good communication.

“The process of getting an assessment and quote was very easy,” he says. “There were no delays, no chasing things up. I was really impressed with the level of professionalism.

“The technician who did the assessment provided a thorough explanation of the product and the process,” he says. "He walked me through how Insulmax®'s material would be injected into the walls.”

Done in a day

One of the great benefits of Insulmax® for Adam was that it was quick and involved minimal intrusion. The insulation is installed via small, strategically placed holes in the exterior lining which are covered over after installation. Once the product is installed, the technician uses high-res thermal imaging to see exactly where the insulation is sitting, ensuring no gap has been left unfilled.

As promised, Adam’s installation was done within a single day. “It was actually faster and easier than I expected,” says Adam. And the impact of the insulation was immediate. “It’s pretty impressive that you can have a chilly, cold home in the morning, then by the end of the same day it’s warm and cosy.”

Immediate warmth, lasting comfort

Adam's home has become significantly warmer and requires less heating to keep it warm. It’s been a welcome change that means winters are now a whole lot easier to manage.

Adam says he couldn't be more satisfied with the result. "Insulmax® is definitely the way to go if you're looking at insulation. It's been a game-changer for our home."
