It literally felt like having a blanket wrapped around the house

We also have instantly noticed the difference in our house and how much warmer it is over the last two nights.

So we went ahead and got Insulmax® put in the walls and that first night was an eye-opener what a difference it made, for the first time in the twenty years of living in this house my wife said the room got too hot and had to turn off the electric fire. We have also redecorated. So having Insulmax® in our walls has given us smaller power bills and a house that is now a lovely warm and cosy home.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you. What a difference it has made ! It's cut out a huge amount of road noise, we had zero condensation this morning and we actually had to turn our heat pump off it got so warm! Definitely money well spent!

It has made such a difference having this insulation in my home. I use less heating and the condensation has reduced. I'm trying to talk my friends into getting this first instead of a heat pump as it means using less power. I'm really keen to look at getting more done in my home now I have noticed a significant difference.

Last night was probably the first night the temp really dipped down at night and in the early morning since you guys put in the insulation and we definitely felt a difference! Bedroom wasn't anywhere near as cold as it usually is when the frosts come so hurray! The house is lovely and snug.

After installation, we often get up in the morning after a cold night and have no idea of the cool temperature outside because the house was so warm. The surprising benefit is Insulmax® insulation blocks a lot of noise from nearby roads. After nine months we still can’t believe it’s made that much of a difference.

We are thrilled with the result of the insulation in our house carried out by Conan and the Dunedin Insulmax® team. It was great over summer

“I had Insulmax® insulation put in the walls of my home just over a year ago and I love it. People often walk into my house and comment on how warm it is.

After more than 20 years in a cold house I’m pleased that I can come home to a warm insulated house. I’d would recommend this insulation option to anyone with a older home.

We were considering heating and insulation options, and it soon became clear that there was no point spending money on heating if that heat was just going to escape through the walls. It seemed like trying to hold water in a sieve! Our home is quieter and generally warmer, particularly in the front bedrooms and although it’s got colder outside, our home seems to hold its heat a lot better. On sunny days the heat of the day lasts longer into the evening.

We are impressed so far and the effects have been instant. With the same amount of heating, the downstairs is about 5-6 degrees warmer with heat pump on less often; the upstairs with no heating is 4 degrees warmer than usual. I cannot feel that creeping cold draft around the stair area anymore. I am sure there has been a noise reduction in the rooms that have been done too. We also felt the cost was excellent making this type of ‘essential insulation’ also very affordable. Very happy indeed.”

Our home is now a lot easier to heat and stays warm. Bedrooms are now often 10°C warmer than outside with no overnight heating!

The change in the temperature inside our 100 year old double brick home in Dunedin has been remarkable since our walls were were insulated. Cold air pockets have disappeared and the overall temperature has risen by several degrees.

What holes ?

Otago and South Canterbury

Just thought that I’d let you know that the DCC building inspector has signed off on whatever it was he needed to approve after the insulation was put in. He struggled to find where the holes had been on the exterior of the house and commented, unbidden, on what a good job had been done

Government scheme to put insulation in the ceiling and under the floor did nothing for the warmth of his home

I had some initial concerns about the insulation getting damp within the wooden walls of my home but my fears were soon allayed by the Insulmax® team who left a piece of the insulation floating in a glass of water for three weeks – with no water absorbed at all ! We’ve been enjoying the noticeable benefits of our house being  a lot warmer and quieter.

Our main motivation for doing the job was for acoustic insulation  – we live in a brick-clad ex state house on a very busy artery and the noise was unbearable in the front rooms. Now, with doors and windows closed, you can barely hear traffic noise at all.I can tell immediately when you close the front door behind you that the place is massively quieter and, having gone in last week at about 7pm after a semi warm winter day, the amount of heat still in the place was phenomenal.

I love our wall insulation. Our home was very cold and very hard to heat. Now we are finding our heat pump is on less and on a lower setting. Our children are sleeping better and longer!

The technology is proven, the product amazing and the install process hassle-free. Consent came through quickly, and soon Barrie was on site doing the install (which only took a day). We are absolutely delighted with the result and cannot recommend Insulmax® highly enough for your retro-fit insulation solution.

it has totally transformed our brick veneer ex state house. It was so much so that it doesn’t feel that different to a new house build in warmth. I consider it to be one of the best things we have done to our house. It is council approved and not to be confused with foam insulation.

I was initially skeptical about retrofit insulation but I decided to take the gamble, and I am pleased to say that Insulmax® has been worth every cent. The difference has been nothing short of amazing. The temperature in my house used to plummet within half an hour of letting my fire burn out – even though I have double glazing and good ceiling insulation.

We had a 20 C day yesterday and the outside temperature had dropped to 10 C when I left for work this morning. I’ve just walked back into the house at 2:30 pm and the whole house is at 20 C !  NO heating required.  Very happy

I have been amazed by the difference it has made. My home is retaining the heat this winter. My power bill has significantly reduced and in fact since having the insulation installed I am saving nearly $100 a month on electricity costs! So pleased I invested in this.

I can’t believe the difference it has made. On cold days, I no longer enter a cold house, its a lovely feeling. Most evenings the heat pump is not required and definitely no longer needed in the afternoons, making the power bill drastically reduced from previous years. The installation itself was simple and quick with no evidence of where it was done. If you are thinking about insulation around your house or have the opportunity to have this done, do it. You will have no regrets.

The insulation has made a huge difference to the warmth of my house.  It was a difficult house to keep warm in winter and now it is so cosy and easy to keep the heat in even in the bedrooms.  Money well spent – thank you.

Debbie's Quiet Dry Home

Almost two weeks on and I no longer have any traces of condensation on my windows. I can honestly say that my house feels warmer and drier inside and the road noise is reduced. The finishing to my weatherboards have been left in a ready to paint stage which is better than what they were prior to installation and your installers cleaned up after themselves.

This is the very BEST money I’ve spent on my 100+ year old villa. The difference was instant. My home doesn’t get to 5-6 degrees anymore. My home doesn’t take long to heat, also the heat is retained and there have have been days during winter when I didn’t light the fire.

I’d highly recommend anyone to choose Insulmax® over pink batts as saved gibbing, plastering, sanding & painting. It’s fast, no mess, the guys had our 4 brm, 2 living room house done within 6 hrs and affordable price too!!! This was the best decision ever – wished we’d known about this 10 yrs ago when we bought the house. Such a noticeable difference in warmth and already saving us $$$

Our house has never felt so warm in the 7 years we've lived in it. The heat pump isn't going full steam like it used to, our children are saying that they're all sleeping better, we're not waking up to damp bedrooms, we're coming home to a house that feels cosy and we've found that the house is more sound proof.

The house is now 1000 times warmer and it was very reasonably priced! 10/10 would definitely recommend for anyone, especially if you have an older home like ours

Our house was a very old cold house and in the last two days we have noticed a big difference with the warmth and, living on the main road, we have noticed how quiet the house is, the noise was something that we had gotten used to over the years here but now this quiet is a new thing to get used to.

We love the finished product and can already feel the difference it makes to heat our home  without unnecessary heat loss. We heartily recommend the Insulmax® product and the workers who installed it in our home.

We already had insulation in the roof and floor but thought we could add the extra warmth by insulating the walls. It absolutely added warmth to the house and made a huge difference.

Prior to getting Insulmax® installed, we used both a Kent log burner and a gas fire to heat the house. After insulation we find that one or the other is all we need. In fact there have been some days where the heat from cooking was enough.

Our rooms are now dry and warm, so much so that we don’t even use heaters in the winter anymore. Harley is highly reliable and insulating our bedrooms was our best decision yet to reduce our heating costs.

Our house is warm, dry, and quiet, and importantly for us, that’s true whether you’re standing right under the heat pump, or at the other end of our house. Perfect for our young family. Not only that, but it’s now hard to tell just sitting inside that we live near a major intersection in Auckland.

We now no longer dread the winter months. The benefits are incredible! My son has not required hospitals visits for croup since installation. We no longer use the dehumidifier at all. Our winter power bill has gone from $300 to around $150 a month. The damp smell has gone after rainfall. The house is super quiet. We use much less fire wood… Which is another huge saving. The heat pump only goes on super super cold nights and turned on at 5.30am just to take any chill off. No mould on walls! No wet walls in our bedroom! This was the best thing we have done to our house. We have a healthy home for our young family!
