SOUTH AFRICAN CLIMATIC REGIONS
A certain thickness of home insulation needs to be installed depending on where you are situated. These guidelines have been set to ensure maximum energy saving in all homes throughout South Africa.
In areas where it is cold, like Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town, the 135mm aerolite insulation should be used. Durban and surrounds can use the 100mm.
If you are unsure as to what thickness you should be using, any aerolite installer should be able to tell you. All approved installers will know the building regulations regarding insulating materials.
If you follow the climatic region guidelines, then you should be able to achieve a 4 – 6 degree difference in your residential, commercial or industrial property. This is before you add heating and cooling systems to the equation.
WHAT IS THE R-VALUE OF AEROLITE INSULATION?
R-VALUE is the measurement of the insulation products ability to restrict heat flow. All insulation products have an R-VALUE. The higher the R-VALUE the more effective the product will be once installed.
