Why Ceiling Insulation?
Installing ceiling insulation in your new home is an investment that can reduce your energy usage by up to 35% and save you money on energy costs. Energy efficiency and environmental sustainability is a new focus in Australia and the aim is for each household to reduce their overall energy consumption. Insulation is known to reduce heat loss during winter and heat gain during summer, maintaining a stable temperature in your home throughout the year.
Ceiling Insulation BCA requirements
The type and amount of insulation needed for your home will depend on the climate, building construction type and heating/cooling systems used. Before you insulate your new home, you need to ensure it is air sealed and weatherproof for moisture control. The Building Code of Australia (BCA) has regulations about the R-value requirements of different parts of your homes. In most climate zones a minimum R-value of 4.1 is required, however this differs for cooler climates and alpine conditions where a higher R-value is required.

The most important decision to make when buying insulation is what R-Value to install. Pricewise Insulation recommends installing a minimum of R4.0 ceiling insulation. If you live in Melbourne, Sydney or Adelaide we recommend upgrading to R5.0 or R6.0. High quality batts provide a great level of thermal and sound reducing qualities, which can help to eliminate external noise and control fluctuating temperatures within your home. Insulation is a once-off investment and is one of the first things to pay itself back when you build a new home.
