Here in Australia, particularly in Perth, ensuring that your home is properly insulated is crucial. Not only will insulation reduce your overall energy cost, it also prevents the growth of both mould and mildew – keeping your home cool and clean throughout the year. For optimal energy efficiency and comfort, a home should be properly insulated from the roof down to its floors. At Mr Insulation, we understand that investing in insulation in all areas of the home can be a somewhat overwhelming and costly (in the short-term) process hence some people only select certain areas. Here is a list of the best places to insulate your home!
Ceiling & Roof Insulation
We all know that warm air naturally rises. This means that your ceiling generally holds the majority of your home’s heat. During the winter, a home without ceiling insulation will see all generated heat escape, leading to an increase in your energy bills! In the summer, it works to block heat from seeping into the home. For either season and the two in-between, ceiling insulation is a win-win, making it one of the best places to insulate your home. Mr Insulation installs insulation from leading brands such as Bradford, Knauf and Kingspan, due to their renowned reputations across Australia and range of environmentally-friendly products.
Similar to the ceiling and roof spaces, an insulated attic is a worthwhile investment for most families. On an average summer day, an attic can reach scorching degrees so insulation is especially ideal and even necessary, for those who use the space regularly for leisure and/or storage.
Although warm air rises, it is still important to ensure the flooring foundations of your home are well insulated. Underfloor insulation is becoming increasingly popular in new builds due to the thermal efficiency it offers. Without flooring insulation, heat has the opportunity to leak in and out of your home throughout the seasons (up to almost 20% in winter), thus making your floors one of the best places to insulate.
Exterior Wall Insulation
If you’ve installed both ceiling & floor insulation and are still experiencing unwanted seasonal warmth or drafts, we recommend looking into wall insulation. Similar to ceilings, insulating your walls can add that extra layer of protection into your home. Better yet, adding wall insulation assists in the reduction of noise throughout the home.
