If you have ever lived in an uncomfortable home, you will know how important it is to build in measures to create the best living environment possible.
Living in a house that is difficult to cool in summer or to keep warm in winter is frustrating and can cost a lot of money. Similarly a house that is noisy can disrupt the harmony within your own home and can lead to lack of sleep or increased stress.
A well insulated home can stop up to 70% of heat flow through the ceiling, walls and floors.
Creating a comfortable home that is energy efficient begins at the design phase with the style of home, size of living spaces, orientation, size of windows, shading and so many other factors. However, there are other ways of incorporating energy efficient measures into your home to create a comfortable living environment that won’t cost the earth.
Whether you’re building a new home, renovating or wanting to improve your existing home Bradford has a range of products that will assist in creating a more comfortable energy efficient home. Bradford has a range of ceiling, wall and underfloor insulation to suit different climate zones and stud sizes to keep the cool air inside in summer and warm air inside in winter.
Acoustics is another area that can affect the liveability of your home.
If you've ever lived in a home where you can hear the noise from the kids bedroom or the rumblings of the washing machine then you know how important it is to reduce noise entering rooms from other spaces. Similarly you don’t want to hear outdoor noises like lawn mowers.
For a relatively small cost, Bradford's acoustic insulation product, SoundScreen, can help reduce sound power by up to 75%. SoundScreen is ideal to use in internal walls, external walls or in the mid floor of double storey homes. Factoring in quiet zones in your home will have a long term benefit of improving the comfort and tranquillity.
