What is comfort living?

Comfort living is about maintaining a comfortable indoor climate for the occupants by controlling the transfer of heat and sound between the interior and exterior of a building.

 

There’s a global shift in the built environment towards intelligent buildings, designed to control indoor comfort levels through the use of passive methods, like thermal insulation, double glazing and natural ventilation, thereby reducing energy consumption, saving money and reducing the impact of human settlement on our environment.

FAQ's

  • There are a few main categories of ceiling insulation to choose from. Below is a list of the top 6 most commonly used for residential ceiling insulations:
    • Earthwool
    • Fibreglass
    • Polyester
    • Cellulose
    • Reflective Foil
    • Spray Foam
  • Swartland supplies Knauf an extremely high-quality earthwool insulation product. Knauf is one of the leading suppliers of ceiling insulation products. Made to the Euroclass specifications. Manufactured in Germany and used in many countries globally. The binders and resins in the product use ECOSE technology, is chemical and dye-free.
  • Combine with Summit XPS Insulation boards to achieve better results
  • The U-value addresses the ability of a material to conduct heat. The higher the U-value, the greater the amount of heat that can pass through the material. Therefore a lower U-value would mean a better insulator.
  • The R-Value addresses the ability of a material to resist heat flow. A higher R-value indicates better insulating properties.
  • Double glazing is a passive energy saving system and helps to create a more comfortable living environment by reducing heat loss during winter or heat gain during summer. In addition, it also reduces noise and provides a more harmonious living environment.
  • Good source of information about how sound travels.

Double glazing can reduce your heat loss or gain through the fenestration by up to 50%, which is an intelligent way to reduce heating and cooling costs.

It will reduce the pressure on heating and cooling systems, in turn reducing your energy. consumption costs.

You can choose to have double glazing in specific windows which will bear the brunt of the sun due to its direction. How much you will save will depend on your everyday energy use and consumption.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THERMAL INSULATION?

Helps keep your home cool in summer warm in winter

While insulation keeps your home toasty in winter, it has the opposite effect in summer. Thermal insulation helps regulate temperature, helps to prevent your home from overheating in warm weather or freezing in winter. Acting as a barrier to heat, insulation keeps the home at a comfortable temperature all year long.

Lowers humidity and reduces mould allergies, better for your health

When moisture levels increase, your home might feel uncomfortable. However, warmer temperatures and humidity pose a more serious threat than discomfort. Mould affects your health, furnishings and can even cause structural damage to your property.


Temperature and moisture management is one of the most effective mould prevention methods. Correctly installed, insulation helps to inhibit mould growth.


Saves You Money
In South Africa

 

It is estimated that household heating and cooling systems can account for up to 70% of your energy consumption. In summer, running your air conditioner without proper insulation means that cold air is escaping, hiking up your electricity bill and the amount of energy you use. By adding thermal insulation, your home will be more energy-efficient, benefitting your pocket.

 

Better for the Environment

 

Another great benefit of insulating your house is the reduced environmental impact that comes with being more energy-efficient. With thermal insulation, you use less energy to cool your home in summer, saving non-renewable energy sources and reducing your carbon footprint.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DOUBLE GLAZING?

It is an insulator, which will help keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer, which means it will help you reduce your energy consumption from heating and cooling systems, saving you money in the long run.

 

 

Double Glazing can reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from your heating and cooling systems, and reduces your carbon footprint.

 

1: It will reduce outside noise levels.

2: It will enhance the resale value of your house.

3: It enhances the ambient temperature of your home
