Insulation R-Value Comparable Across Brands
Every thermal insulation batt has an R-value, also known as R-rating. The R-value represents the amount of heat resistance that the insulation material has. A high R-value is generally more bulky and insulateps better than a low R-value, regardless of which brand of insulation batt is installed. For example a Pink Batts Ceiling Insulation in an R4.0 can be expected to deliver exactly the same thermal “protection” to the house as another glasswool insulation product with the same R-Value. Also good to mention is the fact that the R-rating of thermal and acoustic insulation is not increased or decreased by its additional soundproofing properties. Our analysis on Pink Batts VS Earthwool provides a quick comparison on two of our most popular brands.
The recommended R-values depends to a large extent on the climate zone where the insulation is to be installed. It’s important to note that there may be many different zones within a single State – for example in NSW insulation roof batts recommended R-value will range from an R2.5 in some coastal areas to an R6.0 in the coldest mountain regions.

How Do Insulation Batts Actually Work?
An insulation batt is essentially a piece of material which heat and cold is slow to move through. The exact science of temperature transfer is slightly more complex than simply the movement of cold or hot air from one area to the next – but for all practical purposes its convenient to describe it in this way. Different materials have varying levels of thermal conductivity – i.e. they are more or less efficient at transferring temperature. The more conducive to temperature transfer, the less effective a material is as an insulator. Roofs, walls and floors are typically constructed of materials with a high level of thermal conductivity – timber, stone, plasterboard, cement etc, all of which are very poor insulators.
Insulation batts – whether these are made from glasswool, polyester or other materials – are manufactured specifically to reduce temperature transfer. A single insulation batt contains thousands if not millions of miniscule air-cavities. It is these air-pockets, together with the thickness of the insulation batt, which determines how effective the insulation batts are, or in other words, how high is its R-Value. A thicker piece of insulation will naturally provide a longer ‘route’ for temperature to travel, and this is applicable in all seasons of the year. If it is thick enough, then the temperature variation will barely be noticeable on the other side of the insulation batts, and a small amount of internal heating or cooling will be sufficient to offset any unwanted heat or cold which may still be noticeable as the day wears on.
Pick up or Delivery – Consider your Options
Delivery of batts insulation usually costs around $85, and more if you live away from the major cities. If this seems expensive, you may prefer to come to our Sydney or Melbourne insulation warehouse or arrange an appointment with one of our partner suppliers and pick up the insulation supplies yourself – you can still buy the insulation online. This is a great alternative if for example you are planning to buy Pink Batts through our website or by placing a phone order. There is generally no charge to collect your insulation order, so if you live within a reasonable driving distance of the nearest pickup point this may be a good option.

To determine if it’s worthwhile picking up the insulation bats yourself, first work out if you will have space in your car to transport your order. Being a bulky product, most family cars would only fit about 5 bags of housing insulation. Consider the total cost of picking it up yourself, including things like fuel and tolls and of course your time. Most of our customers who are searching online for the best insulation batts price and who go ahead and buy insulation online find that it works out cheaper to get a freight quote to have the insulation batts delivered to their door by one of our regular couriers.
