How do I Future-Proof my Insulation?

Read some of our advice and information below to help you Future-Proof your project.


When building or renovating, adding insulation should go without saying. A well insulated home will retain heat in the winter and be cooler in the summer saving you on heating and cooling costs.

An insulated house uses a third less energy than an uninsulated house. When looking to insulate your home consider the R-Value of the insulation. R-Value is a rating which measures how well insulation can resist heat flow. The higher the R-Value the better.

You can also insulate beyond the requirement of the New Zealand Building Code to provide extra insulation protection, a great future-proof measure when building or renovating.

Insulation helps keep your home warmer, drier and you can select brands that prevent mould and dampness and are fire resistant.
