What is insulation?

Insulation refers to materials which provide substantial resistance to heat flow. When insulating materials are installed in a building, the heat flow into and out of the building is reduced and the need for heating and cooling is minimised. Insulation should be installed in the ceiling, walls and floors of your home to create a sealed envelope which acts like a thermos in winter and an esky in summer.

Benefits of insulation

Insulate your home, save up to 45% per year

Insulation is the most cost-effective way to improve the energy efficiency and comfort of your home. A fully insulated home means you will spend less on heating in winter and less on cooling in summer. Adding bulk insulation, either to new or existing homes, is one of the smartest ways to save money on energy bills.
