Roof Insulation is one of the key methods of keeping one’s house at optimum temperature. It helps to keep the external heat away during Summers and vice versa during the Winters. Thermal insulation is a method to reduce the transfer of heat from outside to inside. To make house heat proof, thermal insulation is a good choice. An insulated home is more comfortable as the temperature remains consistent over weather changes.
Rood insulation materials are basically of two different types; reflective insulation material and bulk insulation material in the form of blankets, blown in cellulose, spray foam insulation and rigid boards. Most of the home, commercial building and metal structure unite both of material in the form of foil and bulk insulation to create complete insulation system. However in both hotter and colder condition insulation roof with reflective insulation material is quite enough to get better control from unwanted temperature gain or loss and moisture penetration.
Proper installation is the key for any effective insulation system. Reflective insulation can be applied either over the surface or under the roof leaving of airspace between the rood deck the insulation layer. In most of the cases the space available for the insulation is smaller, a combination of rigid and reflective insulation fits much better than using blankets. Both these material have higher insulation property than other material like foam and paper. In retrofit application, reflective insulation material is applied under the attic surface.
Choice of insulating material depends on considerations such as - Cost of insulating material, Area to be covered for insulation, Standard of insulation to be required, Cost of energy consumed for heating and cooling, Reasonable fire proof, Non-absorbent of moisture, Not liable to undergo deformation, Resistant to attack of small insects.
