Building today for tomorrow
If you are building your new home, it is the perfect opportunity to get your insulation levels right. Energy efficiency and sustainability is becoming more valued in Australian new build housing but we are still far behind the standards of other countries. There are specification and product upgrades that can be made to achieve a higher performing energy efficient home to ensure your home exceeds minimum standards and is future-proof.
To achieve best practice for new builds, aim for high performing measures such as double glazing, water tanks, solar panels and insulation with high R-Values. Insulation is well regarded as an effective building material that can contribute to the thermal and acoustic performance of a home but even more so, it can also help improve the energy efficiency and reduce energy consumption.
