Ceiling insulation reduces energy costs by up to 45%.
Many Australian homes are not insulated which places a great reliance on heating and cooling throughout the seasons. If your ceiling or roof is not insulated or poorly installed, you could be losing heat in the winter and cool air in the summer.
According to The Department of Industry, Science, Energy, and Resources, ceiling insulation can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 45%. Depending on the size of the home and the quality of the insulation, the Australian government estimates that homeowners can save hundreds per year on energy bills by installing proper ceiling insulation. Therefore, it is an excellent long-term investment for homeowners.
Check whether your home is effectively insulated to ensure you are minimising your energy bills.
