In most Australian climates, an R1.5 insulation installed in the external wall would be considered a minimum. At 75mm thick, the R1.5 batts fits nicely in most wall cavities, providing a medium level of thermal protection. Ideally, insulate all the outside walls during the building phase, as it is much more costly to do it later.
Why do I need acoustic insulation?
Acoustic insulation can make a significant difference to the home environment, helping to reduce noise transfer between rooms, and hindering unwelcome noise from outside from entering the home, contributing to a more pleasant living environment.
