The best way to keep your home cozy and warm is with the correct insulation. When thinking about insulation most people would envision rock wool or fibreglass when insulating their home. However, there are much more effective materials available such as EcoQuilt Expert MultiFoil Insulation.
Something that’s causing concern to many this year is keeping the cost of our domestic energy bills down. EcoQuilt Expert is an inexpensive MultiFoil insulation that can be used throughout your home, it will help decrease the amount you’re spending on your energy bills. It’s simple to install and very effective at reflecting heat into your home during the winter. Another major benefit is that it’ll reflect excess heat away from your home during the summer so your home will be at a much more comfortable temperature all year round.
What sets EcoQuilt Expert apart from other Insulation Alternatives?
There are three ways that heat can transfer these are convection, conduction, and radiation. EcoQuilt Expert will block all three of these ways heat can escape your home.
EcoQuilt Expert is the best suited for new builds retrofits, and DIY projects. Unlike other types of insulation, EcoQuilt Expert can be used anywhere within your home. This includes:
- Garden Buildings
What Other Benefits are There to EcoQuilt Expert?
Did you know that the majority of building materials including stone, wood, and brick absorb about 90% of infrared energy? However EcoQuilt Expert along with other types of multifoil insulation does not absorb this energy and reflects it into your home due to its reflective outer layer.
The reflective coating on EcoQuilt Expert can also be used as a vapour control barrier once it’s taped and sealed using ThermaSeal Foil Joining Tape. This protects your home from moisture and condensation building up. In comparison, insulation blankets and rolls do not have the benefits of a vapour barrier. This also means they can be damaged by condensation and dampness, which can lead them to deteriorate over time and affect their insulating qualities.

Alternative insulation like liquid foam, sometimes known as spray foam insulation, is sprayed into place where it hardens into an insulating layer. This can only be done by a professional installer, it’s also very challenging to remove once it’s in place.
How Safe is EcoQuilt Expert?
You do not need any specific PPE to install EcoQuilt Expert! It does not contain any harmful fibers unlike Rock Wool or fibreglass insulation. These both contain fibres that cause skin irritation and breathing issues. If you are removing either of these types of insulations before laying EcoQuilt Expert we’d always recommend to wear a mask and gloves.
