Polyester Underfloor Insulation - Wagga Wagga (Polymax R2.5)

$171.00

Without doubt, the very best underfloor insulation for the Wagga Wagga is R2.5 polyester underfloor insulation rolls.   With no insulation under your wooden floor, your floor boards are the same temperature as outside - and that's COLD, some mornings that is FREEZING!! In a home with underfloor insulation your floorboards will be much closer to the temperature inside.

If your feet are cold, the rest of you cannot possibly be warm.  Cold feet encourages you to turn up the heater but that still does not make your feet warm.  :-( 

To solve that problem for this winter, and every winter to come, you need polyester insulation in long rolls.  Much better coverage and less joins.  Bradford CSR polyester insulation is manufactured in Sydney to exceptional standards, making it the most effective product for underfloor insulation for wooden floors.

With the robust nature of polyester, it doesn’t lose its shape over time, ensuring long-term comfort. The polyester's strong, heat-bonded fibres can be secured with staples for long term energy savings and hassle free ownership.  Specially manufactured in rolls, insulation requires fewer joins and is easier to install than ordinary insulation materials.

Is it worth insulating under floorboards? Ask your feet & toes that are too cold.

 

An insulation effectiveness is measured in R value; the higher the insulation R value, the better the insulation.

You may think that having insulation under a laminate floor wouldn’t do much, but most laminates only have an R Value of up to R1.

 

ecoMaster's polyester subfloor insulation is rated at R2.5,  which achieves an overall rating of R 3.2 (without carpet) or R 3.5 (with carpet).

Insulating your floors will give you greater thermal comfort and save energy. Make your home cosy from the ground up with the most effective thermal efficiency solution. Regardless of which subfloor type you have, we recommend this high-quality insulation to insulate under floors.

Frequently Asked Questions:


Q: What does Polymax Underfloor Insulation do?
A: Our underfloor insulation acts as a thermal barrier for your floors, to keep the outer temperature outside, and maintain the temperature of your home inside.

 

Q: Can Polymax Underfloor Insulation be used in my climate zone?
A: You can use Polymax Underfloor Insulation in climate zones 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, & 8.


Q: Do you have a warranty for the insulation rolls?
A: Polymax Underfloor Insulation has a manufacturer warranty of up to 70 years (Terms & Conditions apply). You will need to retain the information displayed on the label on the outside of each pack, you will need the batch number to exercise any possible claim.

 

Q: What about the installation, is there a warranty for that?
A: As it is a DIY product, we cannot provide an installation warranty, the installation process is outside of our control. We only had two situations where the insulation did not hold up (when properly installed) - one was from a tradesperson taking it down, the other was a wombat.

 

Q: Is Polymax Underfloor Insulation easy to install?
A: The difficulty of installing underfloor insulation largely depends on your individual home. Factors like height under the floor, joist spacing, access, among other things all play a part. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions about the installation by clicking this 
LINK, or calling 1300 326 627.

 

Q: How do you install Autex Polyester Underfloor Insulation?
A: We have supplied vidoes to show you how to correctly install underfloor insulation.  It is easy to do, you just need a bit of attention to detail to ensure a terrific result.

 

Take part in our MasterClass

 

Q: What fixings, and how many do I need?
A: For the best result we suggest using 10mm galvanised staples, this prevents the staples from rusting and eventually corroding away. Allow about 800 staples per a pack of insulation. Only use an electric stapler, this is for safety reasons.

 

Q: What stapler should I use?
A: Using an electric stapler is something that we cannot stress enough for your safety due to the fact it will be double insulated, this means on the chance that you happen to hit an electrical wire it will not be a fatal accident. Also, if you have to staple more than 800 times for one pack, I can almost guarantee that your hands are going to hurt!

 

Q: Do you have a recommended installer for the underfloor insulation?
A: A recommended installer is highly location dependent. To find out if we have a recommended installer in your area please go to this 
LINK, or call 1300 326 627.

 

Q: What is the underfloor insulation made of?
A: Our underfloor insulation is made from 100% polyester, it’s the best thing to do with PET bottles

 

Q: Is it fire rated?
A: This excerpt is taken from the datasheet:

The following results were obtained when Polymax was subjected to early fire hazard testing in accordance withAustralian Standards AS 1530.3.

  • * Ignitability Index: 0
  • * Heat Evolved Index: 0
  • * Spread of Flame Index: 0
  • * Smoke Developed Index: 0

 

Q: Is there a noise reduction benefit on using the bulk insulation products?
A: All insulation will have an acoustic benefit due to its density, unfortunately it is difficult to say how much because the underfloor insulation is designed for thermal performance.

 

Q: How much improvement would underfloor insulation make?
A: Without underfloor insulation, your floorboards are the same temperature as outside, this is due to the floorboards rating is R0.7.

With carpet and a great underlay, the rating is R1.0 and for many people an additional R0.3 is noticeable.  

When you add our underfloor insulation to your home, your floor will have a minimum rating of R3.2 with a timber floor, or R3.5 with carpeted floor.

With underfloor insulation installed, your floorboards are the same temperature as inside.

 

Q: Does wind affect the effectiveness of underfloor Insulation?
A: Our underfloor insulation has a dense face which we ensure is facing downwards. Apart from being better for stapling through it also reduces wind penetration of the insulation.  Unless your underfloor is extremely windy, the wind will not penetrate into the insulation. 

 

Q: Can I cut the Polymax Underfloor Insulation?
A: Manipulating our underfloor installation can be quite easy due to the manufacturer designing it to have a strong integrity when it is rolled out. If it is laying across you it is a LOT easier to tear. If using the turn and tear method is not something that you were interested in you are able to cut our installation with a fine metal cutting blade attached to a circular saw.

PLEASE NOTE This method may not be desirable due to the waste that will inevitably be produced and also reducing the coverage that the underfloor insulation pack will provide.

 

Q: Can I get a sample?
A: Yes. Please click 
HERE. The cost of the sample kit is refunded when you purchase your underfloor insulation from ecoMaster.

 

Q: What are the dimensions?
A: The pack dimensions are 1.3m in height by 0.7m in diameter. Each roll has a width of 450mm, a loft of 140mm, and the length of 1000mm.

 

Q: Can I exchange if the insulation is the wrong size or colour?
A: Polymax is only available in one size and one colour - white.   As it is a custom manufactured product, it cannot be returned or exchanged.
