Underfloor insulation is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to insulate your home.
Correctly installed underfloor insulation can also reduce rising damp, as the underfloor insulation helps prevent moisture from penetrating into the house from a damp floor – creating a warmer, drier, healthier and more energy efficient home.
Underfloor insulation also has the added benefit of reducing sound on wooden floors and helps eliminate draughts with exposed floorboards.

As a service provider to the Warmer Kiwi Homes program, we installed more insulation than any other provider in the country in 2019.
Our insulation installers are knowledgeable, experienced and extremely good at what they do.
Also, all our work is installed to the Energy Efficiency Conservation Authority (EECA) standard, which is over and above the current New Zealand standards, as required for new builds and retrofit applications.
There are two main options for underfloor insulation, and GreenSide Energy Solutions will help you choose the right option for your home:
Typically made from polyester, natural wool, rock wool, or expandable polystyrene material, this insulation traps heat inside the house during the winter and blocks heat from entering during the summer.
Reflective foil insulation
Using either single or doubled-sided fall laminates, bubble wrap, or foam foil-faced wrap, the reflective foil insulation can lower radiant heat gain.
