Ceiling Insulation: A Cost-Effective Green Option

Homeowners who are looking to increase their energy efficiency and improve their indoor air quality should consider environmental friendly ceiling insulation. Insulating a ceiling takes relatively little time, and can easily pay for itself in only a few short years.

In the past, many people had to choose between exposure to formaldehyde and having their home be well insulated. That’s because fibreglass insulation used to almost always contain this substance. These days, ceiling insulation is made without formaldehyde, so homeowners do not have to choose between indoor air quality and energy efficiency. Insulation from Johns Manville contains no formaldehyde, and also complies with Australian standards for AS/NZS.


When it comes to insulation in the ceiling, there are a number of reasons to consider it:

  • Prevents air loss through attic space, thereby reducing heating and cooling costs
  • Provides insulation against outside noise
  • Makes it easier to finish attic spaces later

Formaldehyde-free insulation has a number of advantages over other types including:

  • Residents do not notice any harmful odors from the placement of their insulation
  • No harmful emissions are produced during the manufacturing process
  • Safer for the installation crew to handle
