You are a believer in energy saving, right? You are dedicated to reducing your carbon footprint by using only energy efficient appliances, windows and doors in your own home. For you, living green is important and saving money is too. If this is you, then your energy saving philosophy reflects that of Brits Nonwoven Company and their ISOTHERM insulation products.
It is easier to build energy savings into a new construction because you are using environmentally-friendly techniques from the ground up. However, if you’re not starting from scratch, don’t be disheartened; much can be done to improve the efficiency in existing homes using ISOTHERM products.
Energy Saving Secrets
Consider these often overlooked ways to energy savings, using ISOTHERM insulation products:
- Geyser energy saving with ISOTHERM geyser blankets:
You can save up to 20% on your electricity bill by wrapping your geyser in ISOTHERM insulation. The constant energy use by your geyser to maintain the ideal temperature level may be responsible for up to 35% of your total electricity bill. When insulated, the need to reheat will be less frequent. Include the pipes in the insulation process because heat is lost there too. Consequently additional savings are achieved. ISOTHERM is flexible and easy to use, making this an easy task that will reflect noticeably on your energy costs. More info in ISOTHERM Geyser Insulation
- Keep your cool with roof insulation:
Just because you have attic insulation does not mean you are getting maximum protection from heat loss. Check the integrity of the attic insulation you already have. Is the quality up to scratch? If it is flattened out or bare spots are showing, then it is not giving you the protection you need. Install ISOTHERM snugly between the beams and trusses. Make sure all corners and peaks are completely covered. Your energy savings will be greater. More info in ISOTHERM Roof Insulation
We all bear a responsibility to protect our environment and conserve natural resources. We do not have to take on the world, just our corner of it. Begin at home with ISOTHERM insulation products.
ISOTHERM products are made of recycled plastic packaging, like cool drink bottles made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The result is an eco-friendly polyester fibre that is environmentally safe for people who want energy savings as well. These products are superior in energy savings, environmental responsibility and ease of installation.
Here are 5 good reasons why ISOTHERM insulation should be part of your building’s conservation strategy:
