Keeping it Cosy
Insulation is Key
With winter bringing in lots of snow and frost this year and with the temperature dropping each day, we reach for our cosy jumpers, woolly hats and fluffy socks. Turning the heating on for what feels like the hundredth time since Summer, is something everyone (especially in Yorkshire) dreads each year!
It’s therefore obvious that insulation is key to protecting your home from high energy bills, since air leakage is the premier reason for heat loss in most houses. A fail-safe way of keeping insulated with a self-build oak frame is the use of SIPs panels.
Prepared for all Seasons
Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are an advanced method of construction offering excellent thermal performance, light-weight structural strength and time and cost-saving benefits over traditional construction methods or systems.
At Paragon Oak, we have created beautiful structures with the use of SIPs, for our customers. The SIPs help form the building envelope around our oak frames and control the flow of heat, air and sound. This encapsulation makes for a home that has minimal ‘cold bridging’ providing outstanding protection from the cold in winter and maintaining a cool house in the summer.
Saving you money
People may be under the misconception that SIPs can only be used in very simple, prefabricated designs – when in reality they are flexible and can be tailored to every customer’s needs. We ensure that your home is fully insulated with our custom SIPs, meaning you save money on energy bills in the long run.
SIPs also help speed up construction, meaning your home can be made water-tight and finished more quickly, therefore having added cost-effective benefits lasting the lifespan of your building. You know that as long as you have a timber frame, you have insulation you can trust. Hopefully, that thermostat won’t be turned up quite so high next winter…
