What Can It Be Used For?

Our Celotex GA3000 can be used for a wide variety of projects and applications. This includes pitched roofs, flat roofs, solid masonry walls, timber-framed & Steel-framed systems and floors.
We usually see our customers using the GA3000 in cavity wall constructions, but it can be used elsewhere when smaller sheets are required.

When Should Insulation Be Replaced?

If your insulation needs to be replaced, it can affect your whole home. When this happens, there are a few signs you may notice:

  • Changing Indoor Temperature

If the indoor temperatures of your home are constantly changing, that’s a sure sign that your insulation may need changing. Often this can be because of the insulation in your attic or crawl space moving and shifting and allowing cold air into your home. Sometimes you can reset the insulation but in many cases, replacement is the answer.

  • High Energy Bills

High energy bills can be a symptom of poor insulation. Inadequate of a complete lack of insulation can cause the outdoor weather temperatures to sneak into your home. So, in winter the heating will have to work twice as hard to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Therefore, energy costs rise dramatically.

  • Animal Infestation

If you’ve found rats, mice, bats or other pests have made your attic or crawlspace your latest residence, it’ll be time to replace your insulation. The last thing you want is to evict the critters only to find that they’ve left faeces and dirt all over your insulation. Even if you don’t see any evidence of animals in your attic or crawl space, it is important to inspect your insulation for any traces.

  • Wet Insulation

If your insulation has become moist, damp or even completely wet, there is no salvaging the material. It must be replaced immediately. A blocked vent, leaky roof or a basement flood can cause crawl space or attic insulation to get wet. Not only can wet insulation grow mould that releases dangerous mycotoxins into the air, but the moisture causes the insulation to become ineffective. The tiny air pockets in the insulation that are vital in trapping the air and maintaining the temperature are plugged with water, rendering the insulation useless.

  • Indoor Drafts

There are some occasions where, especially with attic insulation, a poor insulation job can allow drafts to enter the home. Where there isn’t enough blockage between the outside air and the inside, cold drafts can easily make their way into your home. If you notice odd drafts, even after you’ve closed all the doors and windows, it’s a good time to check out your crawl space or attic insulation.
