Ceiling Batt Insulation
Ceiling batt insulation is installed to optimize the walls that protect your rooms and host your ceiling fixtures, such as fans and lights. Ceiling batt insulation can go above regulating indoor temperatures and even airflow, they can also prevent moisture from becoming trapped in the folds or building materials of the interior walls and later turning into mould. Ceiling batt insulation includes vapour filters that help trap moisture in the air indoors and prevent it from accumulating within the walls, causing build-up and later, mould.
Ceiling batt insulations are intended to give your home more efficiently than ever before. This is because insulation can easily help retain indoor energy being used, as well as recirculate the air and energy so that you get more use out of it long-term. Promoting home efficiency is one of our main tasks when it comes to insulating homes and their ceilings. While it’s nice to have insulated walls, that’s sometimes not enough if you want long-term comfort and efficiency, so we recommend insulating the ceiling too!
Preventing Energy Loss
Preventing energy loss is another great benefit to having an insulated ceiling. You might know that when the heat is present in the home, it tends to rise, so while your walls are insulated and trap in the heat, it could rise through the parts of your walls that are not insulated to keep it in place – your ceilings! With ceiling insulation, you won’t have to worry about how temperatures are kept constant indoors, as you’ll have all parts of your interiors insulated so you can keep energy, and the air produced from it, that you need and use indoors and without wasting it unnecessarily because of cracks or gaps in the ceilings.
Ceiling insulation is done using batt pieces that are installed separately and placed next to each other, versus on one large roll like other forms of ceiling insulation. Having worked in the industry for years, we prefer using batt insulation methods and materials because they work better in the long-run and when it comes to making repairs as well. When a damaged batt needs to be removed, we can simply remove and replace it with a new one, instead of replacing the whole roll of insulation, saving you both time and money in the process.
Furthermore, ceiling insulation is also intended to help protect the drywall on your ceiling. Since drywall is not known to be compatible with moisture and water, you absolutely should consider installing insulation on your ceiling if made from drywall to prevent moisture build-up and mould and mildew. While other types of ceiling structures are usually stronger against moisture, the residue that moisture leaves behind on drywall are very visible and unsightly. It can leave behind yellow water patches, smaller discolouration spots, and more. To avoid this, ceiling batt insulation is intended to combat excessive moisture build-up on your ceiling and prevent any stains and discolouration on your drywall that could eventually become hazardous.
