Wall Insulation Q&A

Kiwi homes are notoriously cold and damp – so investing in the correct insulation for your home can be one of the best investments you’ll make. Not only will insulation keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, there are a number of other benefits – including a healthier home and of course savings on your monthly power bill. CosyWall Insulation has been around for over 15 years, but what exactly is it? Check out the Wall Insulation Q&A session below:

In a nutshell

The CosyWall Insulation system is a multi-purpose product designed to provide effective thermal wall insulation and soundproofing to your home. In most cases wall insulation will complete the homes thermal envelope. The results are amazing. Faster to warm the home, stays warmer for much longer, less noise from the road and neighbours.

How you get the insulation inside the walls without destroying my walls? And how long it’ll take to get the job done!

Most installs can be completed within a day or two. And, of course we make sure everything is clean and tidy before we leave.

What about the mess?

Most houses in New Zealand have a gap – know as a cavity – between the interior walls and the exterior cladding and it’s this cavity that allows the heat to escape. We fill this cavity with an insulating material that will help retain the heat. The insulation is literally blown into the cavity by our team of professionals who drill small holes into the walls of your house – exterior usually, but if you are thinking about refreshing your interior décor we can also do it internally too. Either way we will then fill the holes and and for the exterior installations repaint them to match your existing walls. It’s a simple, fast, clean and effective method without the mess created by removing the wall linings.

What exactly are you injecting into the walls?

CosyWall is NOT spray insulation foam, expanding foam, or spray foam insulation. It’s a DRY spray-in type insulation. This means you’re not filling the cavity of your home with moisture.  CosyWall is perfectly safe for everyone including children and pets. It has no added Formaldehyde, it’s also water repellent, durable and won’t catch fire. CosyWall is durable and will not shrink or settle in the cavity.
