Wall Insulation - Melbourne
Did you know that about 20% of a home’s heat is lost through the walls? Whether you’re building or renovating, getting your wall insulation right can save you up to 40% on your energy costs.
At Affordable Insulation, we supply and install wall insulation for homes and commercial buildings across Melbourne.
When it comes to insulating your walls, you need to select the right type of insulation to suit your walls. In Melbourne, the most common types of wall are brick veneer, double-brick and weatherboard or lightweight cladding. Brick veneer and double brick walls have a higher R-rating than weatherboard or light cladding walls. That means that they lose less heat in winter. However, it also means they store more heat during summer, making it harder to cool the home.
Weatherboard or light cladding walls have a low R-rating, meaning heat and cold will readily transfer from inside to outside.
All wall types will benefit from insulation. However, the type of wall you have will help to determine the best type of insulation and installation method.
As specialist insulation installers, we can inspect your property and recommend the best insulation for your situation. Whether it’s a new build, a renovation, retrofitting insulation to an existing building or removing and replacing old insulation, our team can help.
