Why Insulation In Your Walls Is A Must In Australia

Home & Garden Blog

When Australians think of insulation, they most likely think about the insulation in their roofs. After all, most houses have insulation in the roof, as that has been standard building practice for many decades. However, insulation in walls has not been as common for the same length of time and therefore many people consider it an optional extra that they don't need. The simple fact is that a wall insulation service can save you hundreds of dollars every year in addition to providing a much better quality of life for you. 

A Wall Insulation Service Can Save You Money

It is well known that hot air rises, which is why insulation in your roof is so important. But this is not the only rule that hot and cold air follow. Your home is constantly trying to maintain the same temperature as the outside, and that means you lose a lot of hot and cold air through everything that connects to the outside world. A wall insulation service dramatically reduces this gradual seepage of temperature, which in turn makes your air conditioning and heaters work much less. This can save you hundreds in electricity and gas bills over time, virtually paying for the cost of the insulation and more over time.

More Comfortable

As you know, not everything is about saving money; sometimes you don't mind spending more for a better-quality experience. Wall insulation provides a far better experience for you than remaining without any form of wall insulation. Your home will get colder/hotter quicker on the inside and remain at a more even temperature because of the protection you now have against the outside world. In Australia, where temperatures can vary so wildly from one day to another, this feature is invaluable.

Tangential Benefit

Another great benefit of wall insulation is the reduced noise pollution. What this means in simple terms is that you can be louder in your own home without having to worry about your neighbours hearing it. This is because insulation traps more than just heat—it traps sound as well. For those that like to enjoy parties on regular occasions, a wall insulation service can keep you at a more comfortable temperature and let you party late into the night with no risk of a noise complaint. There really is no reason to not have wall insulation, especially with how incredible the technology behind it all is.

Turning Your Home into Your Workplace

When I decided to become a freelance designer, I decided I would work from home. I was sick and tired of being in an office all day and to be honest, some of my workmates were pretty annoying. However, I did not consider that I might have to make some changes to my home in order to make it suitable. On the first day of my new life working from home, I realised I would need much more natural light, so I had new windows installed. I then realised that I would need a larger work table to work on my cut out designs. In the end, I made hundreds of changes and I learnt an awful lot about home improvement.
