Keep the heat in
Insulation creates a barrier that stops heat escaping from your living areas. We call this a 'thermal barrier'. Your home stays warmer longer and takes a lot less energy and time to heat or cool.
Wool has the performance edge.
Because wool breathes it can perform better as an insulator—by actively absorbing and releasing moisture in the form of vapour. Terra Lana insulation performs not only as a thermal barrier but also like a thermal mass, moderating the change of temperature within a home to create a more comfortable environment.
Wool is the only fibre with this quality used for insulation in New Zealand. Coupled with good design, this helps mitigate risk associated with moisture, particularly in skillion ceilings.
Warmer, drier home through winter, cooler during summer.
Even when it's damp
Most fibres won't insulate when wet or damp, but wool will still keep things warm—even with up to 30% of its weight in moisture content! That means it gives you consistent performance even with high humidity or where insulation becomes compromised by moisture.
