Don’t get cold feet this winter. Get EXPOL underfloor insulation.

April 04, 2017 at 4:50 PM

While winter may seem like a distant memory, the reality is that the colder months are just around the corner. Now’s the time to get your home insulation sorted, so you don’t get cold feet this winter.

Why insulate?

Underfloor insulation will keep your home cosy in winter, and cooler in summer. A warmer, dryer home also means a healthier home for you and your family – and, for penguins too.

Yes, we did mean to say penguins! That’s because Polly the EXPOL Penguin is back on TV in our new advert. She’s fondly remembered by many Kiwis, and now she’s reminding people just how effective EXPOL underfloor insulation is at keeping those winter chills away.

We’ve also given Polly a new look. Have a watch and see what you think.



Not all underfloor insulation is created equal

There are many different options available when it comes to choosing underfloor insulation. Picking the right product is crucial.

Let’s take a look at the traditional options:

  •  ‘Wool’ or ‘batts’ insulation is prone to sagging. You’ll need to check it annually and then repair (or replace) any sagging so it continues to work effectively.
  • Batts insulation can also absorb water. And wet insulation just doesn’t do the trick.
  • Then, there’s the tricky installation. Most of us are familiar with the prickling feeling that batts insulation can give you. Ouch! Make sure you’ve got gloves at the ready.
