INSULATION - FOR COMFORT AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Insulation is the most cost effective way of making Australian homes more comfortable and energy efficient. Insulation acts as a barrier to heat flow through the walls and ceilings of a home, keeping them cooler in summer and warmer in winter. By reducing the amount of heat entering or leaving the home, insulation helps homes achieve a comfortable internal temperature with less need for artificial heating and cooling. This makes homes more energy efficient and helps reduce energy bills which is good for the environment and great for the hip pocket.
NQ Skylights and Insulation (Formally Effective Energy Solutions) is proud to supply and install Australian made CSR Bradford Black and Knauf Insulations EarthWool products.

KNAUF EARTH WOOL
Knauf Insulation, are committed to providing Australia with a new range of high performance insulation products which set new benchmarks in quality, handling, ease of installation and sustainability.
EarthWool™ is a new, advanced generation of ‘super soft‘ and highly sustainable glasswool. It is thermally efficient and cost effective in saving energy and providing increased comfort in buildings. EarthWool™ is non-combustible and also reduces unwanted noise from outside the home and limits sound transmission from room to room. Made using recycled glass bottles, sand and
using ECOSE™ Technology, EarthWool™ sets a new benchmark for insulation sustainability and ease of handling. Knauf Insulation’s EarthWool™ Wall and Ceiling Batts are made from highly resilient, inorganic glass fibres bonded by ECOSE® Technology, a revolutionary new binder based on rapidly renewable bio-based materials rather than non-renewable petroleum-based chemicals. ECOSE® Technology reduces Knauf Insulation binder embodied energy and contains no phenol, formaldehyde, acrylics or artificial colours found in traditional glasswool insulation.
