Why Insulate?

Insulating your home is the most effective thing you can do to keep your home comfortable and healthy, and to save energy and money. A well-insulated home provides year-round comfort; it is cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. An insulated home is a drier, healthier home.

Around 35% of the energy used in the average New Zealand household goes on heating your home. If your home doesn’t have adequate insulation, a lot of your energy spend is wasted as the heat escapes.

Acoustic Insulation

Walls & Mid-Floors

The addition of sound insulation plays a very simple roll. It reduces the airborne sound, impact noise and transmission by controlling resonating noise inside the construction cavity.

The addition of insulation to reduce the transfer of sound between one area and another is simple and cost effective. Rememeber once the wall is stoped and painted the cost of treating a space for transfer can be expensive. Design and factoure it in to avoid cost and create the space you wanted.

Autex Sound Solution

As a standard practice we recommend meth testing is added into any and all due diligence clauses of any sale and purchase agreement to give vendors the required information prior sale. Without such a clause the vendor is extremely vulnerable and at some point this financial risk may be viewed by the insurance industry as uninsurable.
