Immediate Energy Savings- Install Ceiling Insulation
If you want a more energy efficient home, consider installing thermal insulation in your ceiling. CSR Bradford is one of Australia’s oldest companies. The insulation they manufacture is made out of glasswool. Glasswool contains millions of air pockets, which drastically slows the flow of air or radiation through the insulation. Unlike other forms of heating and cooling control, ceiling insulation doesn’t require any maintenance or replacement.

At Pricewise Insulation we are often asked by our Melbourne and Sydney customers what R-Rating is recommended for either of these two cities. R3.5 insulation in the ceiling is considered quite standard and is sufficient to provide good thermal protection in a varied climate – hot summers and cold winters. If installing it in a retrofit (existing home) application you should place the insulation bags into the roof space before splitting them open, as this will make the job a lot easier when it comes to installing the insulation. CSR Bradford is the only official partner of the National Asthma Council Australia’s Sensitive Choice program. It is ideally suited for use in the homes of allergy and asthma sufferers.
