Smart Comfort and Joy: Home Insulation for Holidays


When discussing the many benefits, insulation installers in wellington provides, I often refer back to tagline, stylish & comfort, when referring to financial and ecological benefits. These two elements are comforting, but I prefer to refer to them as the smart in our tagline. Today I will be talking about comfort.

The word home has never been more meaningful than it is right now. You don’t have to believe me – I’ll Be Home for Christmas, Home For the Holidays, and I Want to Return Home for Christmas. You don’t have to believe me. Grab your favourite beverage, get some chestnuts, and an open fire. We’ll be discussing comfort Insta-Insulation style: smart comfortable.

Home insulation isn’t something that will be discussed over a few eggnogs. However, that doesn’t mean it won’t be discussed. This is the beauty of comfort. It’s not something you notice unless you have it. It’s not something you notice if you don’t. For a second, let’s forget about the lower heating bills or greenhouse gas emissions. What are the benefits of a well-insulated hoo-ho-home?

What about temperature fluctuations throughout the house? This is a good place for you to start. Aunt Gertrude enjoys sitting in front of the fireplace so much she doesn’t think it would be polite to tell others how it feels when she uses the bathroom. Insulating your home will not only keep the heat from going outside, but it will also limit heat transfer and maintain a consistent temperature throughout the house.

Grandpa loves his warm bed. He knows that it would be rude to tell you, but he does know that he enjoys his toasty bed.

Proper insulation in the home, and particularly the building envelope seal made possible by spray foam insulation, eliminates the cold wall effect: The sensation of discomfort caused when there is a greater than 3 degree Celcius difference between the internal air temperature and the wall temperature.

Insulation can make your home more spacious by allowing you to place a desk or sofa against an external wall. You can also open up spaces that were previously wasted by home insulation. You know what they say about space during holidays! It’s just like people you like: The more, the better! It’s the holidays, and you never know when a dancefloor will be needed. It’s one of those things.

What’s the deal with that musty scent? They are wonderful. Baking shortbread is also delicious. Uncle Roy can’t seem to get past the smell of baking shortbread. Although he won’t mention it (he doesn’t want to be a party-pooper), he is worried about what it could mean for Roy Junior’s viral asthma.

Insulation, particularly spray foam insulation, is important in mould and moisture reduction. It is also important for internal air quality.

Insulation and the comfort that it brings is about looking at all the things people don’t notice. The truth is that even though we share and laugh and eat and have fun, we still enjoy all the other things – even if we don’t notice them – but without the draughts and the coughing and the hot flashes and sleepless nights.

It goes back thousands of years, and even before the reasons we celebrate this holiday, that it was a part of our history as Northern Hemisphere inhabitants to gather in the dark, cold months to enjoy the warmth of home, but also to share the warmth of each other’s company.

comfort lies at the heart this time of the year.

Insta-Insulation wishes everyone a happy, safe, and comfortable holiday season. It is our hope that some of the money you saved on utility bills will find its way to the families of the less fortunate.

To all Insta-Insulation customers that we have served over the years: It provides me great comfort (both in terms of economics and ecology) I know that you will have a green Christmas.
