A few things you should know
- Insulation is the most neglected consideration in Australian homes. This is especially critical in Australia as our weather can be extremely unpredictable.
- 42% of your home’s warmth is lost through the ceiling and 24% is lost through the walls. It’s the reverse on blazing hot summer days with heat flowing in through the ceiling and walls.
- A well-insulated will provides year-round comfort, cutting cooling and heating bills by up to half. As a result will reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
- Any insulation you use in your home should have a guaranteed R rating. A guarantee shows that the insulation has been thoroughly tested and the manufacturer is certain that it will meet R rating standards.
Why is it so important?
Insulation will help you keep the desired temperature in your house all year round, protecting it against cold in winter and excess heat in summer. Insulation is also useful to reduce noise pollution. A well-insulated house is very energy efficient and will need very little additional heating and cooling.
The value insulating provides regarding energy efficiency is incredible, it is not only great for the environment but also your energy bills, the benefits aren't new but a lot of people are still not taking advantage of these savings.
Insulation products come in two main categories — bulk and reflective — which are sometimes combined into a composite material, you can see the range of products we have available at our Online Store.
