Home insulation has become a standard part of running a household, especially in South Africa where seasonal temperatures and weather conditions fluctuate quite wildly. We all need a solution that can keep the heat in (or out) while ensuring that our homes are adequately waterproofed, and that our appliances don’t have to work too hard to keep our living areas temperate. That is why insulation products have been able to stand the test of time through constant development, until arriving at the perfected solution that almost all homes have come to rely on. Because of its importance, and the costs associated with installing insulation, many homeowners try for the DIY route when having it installed. However, here are some pretty good reasons why you should rather leave it to the professionals.
Maintaining your Own Safety
When insulating ceilings, you may find yourself in some precarious positions. There are many dangers and risks associated with climbing into the roof or loft and doing your own insulation, and let’s be honest, you aren’t adequately trained or experienced to do it properly. Keep yourself far from harm by having a professional handle it for you instead.
Damaging the Insulation Material
Insulation material can be fairly expensive, so you’ll want to go with an approach that results in the least possible wastage. Doing it yourself might result in mistakes that render the insulation useless, or indeed damages it to the point where it needs to be replaced even before it has been installed; costing you more money even before you get started.
Rendering Insulation Ineffective
When laying down insulation there are specialised techniques that need to be followed to ensure that you get it right. If you have very little experience in doing it, then chances are you don’t quite have the eye for it. This means that you may lay it down with gaps that go unnoticed, which will essentially make your insulation ineffective.
Sourcing the Right Solution
There are many different types of insulation to choose from, and the solution that you go for will depend on your unique situation and environment. You can’t be expected to know the difference between these solutions, whereas a professional can. So enlist in the services of one to ensure that you get the right type.
