Still breaking a sweat over your summer powerbills?

We hear about the importance of home insulation in winter but not so much the benefits during the hotter months.

Insulation creates a barrier to heat gain and loss in ceilings, roofs, floors, and walls. It’s a cost-effective and practical way to keep your house warmer in winter and cooler in summer.

Did you know that the temperature in your roof space can escalate to well over 40 degrees in the summer? Upgraded ceiling insulation alone helps to create a thermal barrier to prevent that heat transferring through the ceiling into your home.

Opening windows to cross ventilate, closing curtains during the day, cooking outdoors, using energy efficient air conditioning units and planting deciduous trees also help to keep your home cooler during heatwaves.
