13 REASONS WHY WE LOVE GREEN SHEEP
Insulate your home naturally with wool insulation
Green Sheep Insulation & Home Comfort are specialists in eco-friendly insulation products, all designed to help you live in comfort. Sustainable, natural, non-irritating, non-toxic and 100% New Zealand made, their wool insulation is ‘home grown’.
Have you ever considered wool insulation for your home? Here are 13 great reasons why Green Sheep's wool insulation is a wonderful choice.
Wool is nature’s miracle fibre! Individual wool fibres feature hollow spaces (medulla) which decrease thermal conductivity and give outstanding insulation performance. The wool fibre has a natural crimp or ‘springiness’ which gives it natural loft and the ability to entrap air - making it the perfect natural insulator.
There is nothing man-made about wool, and New Zealand grows the best wool in the world.
Green Sheep supply and install wool which is grown and manufactured right here in New Zealand. You can be proud to buy locally made products and support Kiwi businesses.
Wool is a protein fibre, similar in structure to human hair. Biodegradable and non-toxic, wool insulation is an ideal option for allergy sufferers, because unlike fibreglass insulation, wool won’t release small fragments of fibre into the air and doesn’t produce toxic fumes. It can even be installed without any special safety equipment!
Most of Green Sheep’s wool insulation products can be recycled (some of them have already been recycled!) so it is the perfect green solution for home insulation needs.
Wool insulation uses only a fraction of the energy required to product comparable manmade material.
Wool is one of the earth's most sustainable resources; annually shorn and replenished, the amount of wool available to supply the global appetite is only limited by the number of sheep farmed across the planet.
Being a completely natural product, wool will biodegrade in soil without harm to the planet and the environment, fulfilling optimum life-cycle benefits.
Wool can last for hundreds of years without losing its resilience or structure. A good comparison is wool carpet, which can resist footfall in high traffic areas without losing either its appearance or its robust ability to function.
Wool has a unique ability to moderate the humidity inside your home - when the external temperature drops and the amount of moisture in the air increases, wool absorbs this increase, keeping the indoor environment stable and comfortable. In summer, wool helps to create a cooler, pleasant living environment.
Wool acts as a natural filter, with the ability to absorb formaldehyde and other indoor air pollutants such as sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide (which come from gas appliances), providing a clean and healthy indoor air environment for your home.
Green Sheep’s natural wool products possess excellent sound absorbing qualities, effectively reducing noise transmission from within and outside of your building.
Wool has a higher fire resistance than most other insulation products. Wool will not burn but melt away from the ignition source and extinguish itself, preventing the spread of flame.
