Here is my best explanation:

'some insulation' is the definition.

'cross lecturer had dug out' is the wordplay.
'cross' becomes 'x'.
'out' indicates anagramming the letters (out can mean wrong or inaccurate).
'x'+'lecturer'+'had'+'dug'='xlecturerhaddug'
'xlecturerhaddug' is an anagram of 'DRAUGHT EXCLUDER'.
