Roof insulation is creating a barrier to heat flow between the inside of your house and the outside world. As a result, insulation keeps the temperatures in your house to desirable levels – warm in winter and cool in summer.
There are different kinds of roof insulation, including:
As the winter temperatures in Brisbane fall to 10 degrees at their lowest, it is important to have your house insulated properly. This is especially important as Australian houses save on average $450 on their energy bills per year if they’re properly insulated. Insulating your house will help you save on heating in winter, as well as air conditioning in summer.
Your house should be insulated from its roof to the foundations to get the best energy efficiency. However, during winter it is good to start with your roof as the top of your house is where the warm air concentrates. The roof loses around 25-35% of your house’s temperature, therefore it is important to have it insulated properly in order to save on energy bills.
What’s more, roof insulation can save you not only money, but also your health. The World Health Organisation recommends a minimum temperature of 18 degrees for residential homes. With winter temperatures falling below that during the night, insulating your roof will help prevent your house from losing the warmth it gains during the day and will keep you and your family healthier.
You can insulate your roof when you’re building a new house or retrofitting an existing one. All new built houses are highly recommended to insulate for high energy efficiency standards. Therefore, you should definitely consider insulating your roof when building a new house.
Moreover, if you’re thinking of insulating in an existing home, roof is the way to go. This is because often walls and floors are difficult to be insulated in existing houses. Roofs, on the other hand, are relatively easily insulated and retrofitted. If your roof insulation is older than 10-15 years, you should consider renewing it to get the best insulation possible. This applies to winter and summer.
To get the best results possible, hiring a professional roof insulation service is highly recommended. This is especially important as there are many health and safety risks related to DIY roof insulation. You should never compromise your wellbeing, and therefore we recommend seeking professional advice. Ozroofworks is a professional roof insulation contractor, and provides free roof consultations.
