Roofs and ceilings work in conjunction with each other in relation to reducing the transfer of hot and cold energy. When evaluating your ceilings, we can also review the roof of your home and provide insulation options for installation directly under your roof tiles to reflect radiant heat.
Bulkheads should be insulated as they are subject to the same temperature extremes as ceilings. Garage and adjoining enclosed spaces should also be insulated when under the same roof line to reduce the transfer of heat/cold through to the main structure. Veranda roofs should be insulated in hot climates where outdoor living spaces are used extensively, to reduce radiant heat gain. Heat build-up under verandas not only affects the space below but can affect conditions inside the house.
To reduce the risk of electrical short circuiting, electrically conductive insulation must not be laid across ceiling surfaces or ceiling joists, or under subfloors. Electrically conductive insulation must also be secured with non-conductive staples. Safety is a key reason to use the service of an insulation specialist such as Enviroflex to ensure the safety of the installer and the compliance of the installed insulation.
