Bubble Wrap Insulation for Walls

Wall Cavity Bubble Insulation

Statistics say that approximately 25% of the heat in a structure escapes through the walls. In warmer countries, this might not make much of a difference, but in colder climate countries such as Canada, 25% makes a huge difference. That is where external wall insulation and internal wall cavity insulation come in and balance the temperatures in residential and commercial structures. Families need to invest in foil insulation for walls because when there is a lack of interior wall insulation, the air from outside can invade the home and create an imbalance of temperatures, causing the HVAC systems to overstress in the long run. Ideally, most bubble wrap insulation for walls is added by wall cavity insulation manufacturers during construction, but it is possible to add them later on as well.

Insulapack’s Wall Cavity Insulation comes pre-cut already and can be found in sizes of 48”, 24”, or 16” strips, so they fit between standard studs. You can choose the size based on your needs and have them custom cut per your specifications. We provide bubble and foil insulation for walls in Canada and the USA.

Here are some of the other features of Insulapack’s wall cavity bubble insulation:

  • Cut holes for wires or other hardware that must protrude through
  • Fit snugly into place
  • R10.6 per inch
  • Insulapack™ is a multi-layered, laminated plastic cellular material filled with insulating argon gas bubbles complete with a metalized reflective outer layer that provides a very high thermal resistance (R-value) to insulate walls and ceilings, mechanical ductwork, and piping.
  • The outer metallic foil layer of Insulapack™ ensures that the product will not provide radiant heat transfer, and its plastic cellular construction makes the product impervious to humidity.
  • The insulating argon gas within the green-colored plastic cells is inert, non-reactive, and not flammable.
  • The multi-laminated plastic cells will not leak, and the material has been aged tested to perform effectively or a minimum of 20 years.
  • This material ensures extremely low water vapor permeance acting as a vapor barrier and will not corrode.
  • Resists mold and will not provide a nesting environment for animals and insects
  • Insulapack’s™ Acoustic sheets provide for an STC rating of 65
    Tested and meets all ULC/UL requirements for wall cavities
  • Formaldehyde-free
  • Extremely lightweight
  • It does not adsorb/absorb moisture
  • UL & ULC Certified

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Bubble wrap is an effective form of wall cavity insulation. It is lightweight, low-cost, easy to install, and can provide a high R-value (resistance to heat flow). When installed correctly, bubble wrap will help to keep a home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Its reflective surface will also prevent heat loss through conduction.

The answer to this question depends on a number of factors, such as the climate where you live and how much insulation you currently have. Generally speaking, cavity walls should be insulated if the existing insulation is inadequate or if there is none at all. Insulating cavity walls can help to reduce energy costs by up to 25%, while also providing better protection against moisture and drafts.

Bubble wrap wall insulation is one of the best types of cavity wall insulation available today. Bubble wrap wall insulation is incredibly effective at trapping and holding heat, making it a great choice for any area that needs to maintain a consistent temperature.

The various benefits of Wall cavity insulation are :

  • It is a great way to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
  • It can help you save money by reducing the amount of energy you use
  • It keeps your home temperature comfortable year-round.
  • It improves indoor air quality by trapping pollutants inside the walls of your home.

Wall cavity insulation has an average lifespan of around 40 years, though this can vary depending on a range of factors.  The insulation is designed to keep heat in and cold out, but the effectiveness of this can decline over time. In order to maximize the lifespan of your wall cavity insulation it’s important to check its condition on a regular basis.

The best thickness for wall cavity insulation depends on a variety of factors, such as the climate and temperature you live in, the type of building materials used in your construction project, and your budget. Generally speaking, insulating walls with a minimum of R-13 is most common in colder climates such as Canada.
