Make sure your home is well in­su­lated

Central Queensland News - - REAL ESTATE | INDUSTRY NEWS -

In­su­lat­ing the ceil­ing will help re­duce the amount of heat en­ter­ing your home when it’s hot, and trap the warmth in­side when it’s cold.

There are many in­su­la­tion op­tions to choose from de­pend­ing on your cir­cum­stances or pref­er­ences.

Some of the most pop­u­lar choices are wool, loose fill, re­flec­tive foil and batts.

Glass fi­bre batts are an en­vi­ron­men­tally-friendly op­tion as they’re made from 80% re­cy­cled ma­te­rial. You can fur­ther re­duce heat build-up in the ceil­ing cav­ity by in­stalling a whirly bird on the roof.
