Benefits of Insulation

Uses of installation in a house

Insulate for smarter homes

Insulation is widely regarded as one of the easiest things that can be done to make homes more energy efficient.

Whether it’s a new home or an extension to an existing one, insulation to the walls, ceiling and suspended floors will reduce the transfer of heat which in turn reduces the home’s reliance on heating and cooling. The same applies in multi-residential developments where framed lightweight construction is used, and Bradford has products specifically designed for these environments.

By reducing the need for air conditioning or heating we save money on our energy bills. This is important as energy costs increase year after year at a significantly higher rate than inflation.

Minimising energy use also helps the environment given that most of the electricity in Australia is still generated from non-renewable natural resources.

Insulation can be used to control sound as well as heat. Good acoustic insulation will improve the performance of framed walls and this is becoming increasingly important with the development of specialised rooms such as

  • home theatres
  • parents’ retreats
  • home offices.

In each case, acoustic insulation can help to partition the activities which make noise in one room from what is going on in the rest of the house.
