When it comes to choosing insulation for your property, there are many different options to choose from these days. Whether you're looking for silver insulation, foil insulation, or reflective insulation - there's more than enough to make anyone's head spin. Especially when everything you read is filled with industry jargon. For this reason, many people choose the traditional type. People just accept all the confusion and embarrassment that comes with these types of insulation.

However, gone are the days of having to settle for traditional types of insulation. With all of these options at your fingertips, it's time to start making informed decisions and take matters into your own hands.

Newer insulation materials are often overlooked due to familiarity with more traditional forms of insulation such as PIR panels and mineral wool. (Newer types of insulation include methods such as foil-wrapped insulation or thermal foil insulation). Avoiding these new types of insulation is a huge mistake, as in most cases, these lesser-known types will get you so much more for your money!

So, what exactly is reflective foil insulation and what do you need to know?

Insulating Foil - What is It?

First off, foil insulation is more than just a layer of aluminum foil and some padding in case you need it. Multi-layer insulation is a high-tech solution made of layers of reflective aluminum foil, thermal foam, and polypropylene (your fill and mine). Although multi-layer foil insulation is made from multiple layers, the build-up of multi-layer foil remains slim while still providing excellent insulation.

You can install multi-layer insulation almost anywhere! From roofs, floors, walls, garden buildings, campers and boats, and more!

Is Foil Insulation the Solution for Me?

At the end that's what matters. Is Insulation Foil Right For You? We want to say yes. There are many benefits of multi-foil insulation over more traditional types of insulation, and you will never regret taking advantage of them.

If you're looking for some quick reading, here's a rundown of what foil insulation has to offer!

Easy to install - The thought of insulating your home can be daunting, however, insulation foil is quick and easy to install. The insulation is also very lightweight, so it's easy to handle, store and move when needed.

No loss of thermal performance - You don't have to worry about replacing foil insulation anytime soon. Many traditional insulation materials tend to lose their thermal properties over time due to compaction, damage, and moisture-related issues. However, with foil insulation, this is not a problem. Its design will keep it looking its best for years to come.

Reduce energy bills - By controlling heat levels year-round, not just in winter, you'll see reduced energy bills in the long run. So, over time, the insulation will eventually pay for itself.
