The roof insulation basics in Adelaide
Installing roof insulation in your Adelaide home or office is crucial in ensuring the occupant’s comfort all year round. In all homes, warm air rises and cool air drops, making your house hot in summer and cold in winter. This basic physics principle makes insulation essential.
The importance of roof and ceiling insulation in Adelaide
With the highest amount of heat being lost through the roof and ceiling, it is essential to invest in roof and ceiling insulation in Adelaide. Without insulating your roof or ceiling, you can lose as much as 45 per cent of your heating and cooling energy. This is essentially wasted money on powering your air conditioner or heater for it not to be maintained.
Another high point of your home that requires insulation is the verandah. Many people overlook insulation in the verandah, without understanding the effect it can have on your home. In Adelaide’s hot climate, verandahs can easily heat up and without insulation can change the temperature in your entire house. To ensure comfort all year around, insulation should be installed in the verandah.
Roof insulation and energy regulations in South Australia
In Adelaide, roof insulation is not a choice but a necessity. Energy regulations in South Australia and across the Nation require all homes to meet certain energy level standards and at least a four-star energy rating. In order for your home to meet this standard, insulation is an extremely effective way to save and efficiently use energy in your home. Not only can you be environmentally conscious, but you can also save money on your energy bills.
