Did you know that professionally installed insulation does much more than keep your family cosy in winter and cool in summer? According to Sustainability Australia, a fully insulated home compared to a non-insulated home can reduce heating and cooling bills by a whooping 40 to 50%!
The best insulation for walls, ceilings and flooring reduces the amount of heat transferred through building materials like brick, plasterboard, glass and metal by providing resistance to heat flow going in or out of a structure.
Insulation is rated by its R-value, which measures how resistant types of insulation are to heat flow. A higher R-value means better temperature control and higher energy efficiency for your home.
The most common insulation materials are fiberglass, cellulose and foam. Building insulation include any of these materials in the form of loose-fill, batt insulation, rolls, foam insulation and radiant barriers.
In Australia, all insulation materials used must meet Australian Standard AS/NZS 4859, even if they are imported.
