So, it’s your first time venturing into the world of insulation. Welcome! The technology of insulation has been around for decades and has evolved incredibly since its first inception all those years ago. Maybe you’re considering installing insulation because summers coming up and you’re looking for ways keep you and your family cool in the hot Melbourne climate. The good news is that insulation is definitely one of the best ways to do this. As a matter of fact, a recent study by the EPA has revealed that insulation saves over 600 times more energy for a user than all the energy star appliances, energy star windows and compact fluorescent lights combined. While there are many great products that will complement insulation, we believe insulation should be the primary foundation for establishing thermal efficiency in your home. Everything else is a great accessory to really solidify your setup. Before you go ahead and install insulation at home, here are five insulation installation tips to help you out:

1. Foil insulation is the way to go When it comes to choosing insulation for your home , there are many options to choose from. We believe that out of everything available, foil insulation is a clear winner every time. Not only is it a great reflective material, but it is extremely economical and offers fantastic bang for buck   2. Get clear on R-value ratings One thing you’ll notice is that each and every insulation comes in a particular R-value rating. An R-value rating basically tells you how much thermal efficiency a particular insulation provides. It’s important to know your home well enough, so you know what R-value rating will be the most effective and efficient for you.

3. Are you building a new home or retrofitting? This is an important distinction to make, as there is a big difference. While you can install insulation in an existing home, there is a different procedure for doing so–not to mention you’ll have to move a few things around! 4. Do your research If you aren’t familiar with what’s available, it’s a good idea to do your research. Today, the internet is a great resource with an abundance of information on any subject—insulation included. If you haven’t had a browse for knowledge, it’s probably a great idea.
