Is your home healthy and safe for you and your family? About one-in-two New Zealand homes are not well insulated, but InsulPro, a proudly New Zealand-owned company with a quality insulation product, is helping to change that.
Most kiwi homes were built in the era when people did not understand the health benefits
of insulating their home. About half of all kiwi dwellings still remain unnecessarily cold and damp in winter.
In 2007 research by the Wellington School of Medicine showed that improved heating
and insulation cut hospital admissions for respiratory conditions by 38% and energy use by 19%.
Recently InsulPro supported a local Waikato family. The Lockley family have encountered a number of challenging hurdles, with their four children suffering from a rare life threatening disease. A warm, healthier home is vital to the wellbeing of the family. InsulPro donated their home insulation and the Huntly Energy Efficiency Trust installed it in the ceiling and under the floor of the Lockley’s home, while Panasonic provided a heat pump.
“We need to keep a consistent, warm temperature in our home for our children’s health. In the past we have had really expensive power bills”, Mrs Lockley said, “Huntly Energy Efficiency Trust rang to tell us the great news about installing insulation and a heat pump in our home. We’re just blown away by people’s generosity and kindness”.
The Lockley family had Insulpro’s NOVAtherm Ceiling insulation and NOVAfloor underfloor insulation products installed. They are top-performing, longer-lasting and entirely recyclable polyester insulation solutions for new and existing homes.
“We are amazed at the warmth of the house. The insulation traps the warmth from the winter sun in our living area, so we have a lovely warm home in the afternoon, without the need for a heater. It is just great”, Mrs Lockley said.
One of the best things about InsulPro’s polyester insulation is that it is made from recycled plastic bottles. What better use for a waste material than turning it into insulation that helps warm your home, reduces energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions?
The InsulPro manufacturing process requires no glues and, as polyester is not a protein, it doesn’t need to be treated with insecticides so it is safe for your family.
You don’t even need protective gear to install it – it won’t irritate or scratch your skin. In fact, you could just wrap yourself up in NOVAtherm and safely go to sleep (it’s the same material that most duvets and pillows are made from).
