In many existing construction as well as in under construction buildings, the most efficient and economical option to increase the thermal resistance and stopping unwanted temperature transmission of heat gain or loss is through the under deck insulation that has been done underside of the rood or ceiling surface. Following such temperature resistance procedures has many advantages.
Benefits of Under Deck Insulation:
The fundamental advantage of the under deck insulation is the low consumption of energy that is spent on cooling inner atmosphere. It increases the inner comfort level and decrease the effect of environment. It also stops the radiant heat entering inside the houses that increase the temperature extremely.
The main advantages of Under Deck Insulation are described below:
• Protect heat from entering inside the house
• Increase the cooling efficiency of house
• Decrease the cooling time
• Decrease energy consumption for cooling devices
• Provides resistance against vapor and moisture
Different types of under deck insulation material offers different applications. Some of them are easier to apply under the deck while some of them are better retrofit due to their light weight. Various types of such insulation materials are made from cellulose filled insulation, structured insulation panels, polyethylene air bubble insulation, glass wool insulation, polystyrene insulation, rock wool insulation, natural wool insulation, foil thermal insulation and polyurethane foam insulation.
Apart from thermal insulation and temperature control, under deck insulation also offers better climate conditions and inner atmosphere at times of harsh summer. Low energy cost is another great advantage with better effect on carbon foot print and green house effect.
