The ROCKWOOL Guide to a Cosy Home

01 July 2019

Your home is a sanctuary. A place where you should be able to work, rest and play in comfort. However, making that dream home a reality can be costly, so it pays to understand where your budget will make the biggest impact.

Whilst upgrading your home you have the ideal opportunity to look at reducing energy consumption, which naturally leads to cost savings. It’s also key to creating that perfect home environment. 

According to BBC Science, being too warm is one of the top five reasons why people don’t get a good night’s sleep. However, we don’t want to be too cold either – especially in the winter. In fact, the WHO recommends indoor temperatures of at least 17 °C and raises that to 21 °C degrees for homes with infants, elderly members or frail individuals.

So how do we strike the right balance all year round? Cosying up in the winter months without worrying about huge heating bills, and relaxing in the summer and not worrying about sleepless nights. The easy answer - choose the right insulation. 


Creating a cosy home with stone wool 

Renovations are investments in our homes and lives. By planning your choice of insulation carefully, you’ll create a comfortable home that you can enjoy for many years to come. If you think that insulation is just for keeping the heat in think again. It’s about regulating home temperature, and that’s where stone wool insulation gives you the best of both worlds. 

Spun into wool from a sustainable abundance of volcanic rock, stone wool insulation is a natural material that boasts some excellent benefits.

  1. Maintain temperature – stone wool keeps heat in when you need it, and out when you don’t. Helping to reduce heating, cooling and ventilation costs, and giving you a cosy home all year round. 
  2. Perform over time – stone wool products maintain their shape and density so perform at their peak for the lifetime of installation.  
  3. Highly flexible – stone wool will work in virtually any space and act as a buffer against temperature.
