Ceiling insulation is generally the easiest, cheapest and most effective insulation to install in your home. It’s a great place to start making your home warm, comfortable and healthy to live in. Hot air rises, so for most homes making them easier and cheaper to heat properly starts with good ceiling insulation. Fortunately, ceiling insulation is relatively easy to install in houses with accessible roof spaces.
Underfloor insulation is one of the first things to consider in most existing houses to make them warmer, healthier and more comfortable – and in homes with accessible underfloor spaces it is relatively cheap and easy to do.
Wall insulation is not easy to check or install, bit it makes a big difference to the comfort and warmth of your home. Once you have insulated your ceiling and underfloor, installing wall insulation is the next most effective step for reducing heat loss in your home. It is difficult to check and install wall insulation in existing houses without taking the lining or cladding off, so take the opportunity to do it if you are renovating.
There is funding and assistance to insulate your home through some local council throughout New Zealand.
Auckland City Council offers funding and Christchurch City Council offers assistance and advice through the Build Back Smarter program for which Air Con NZ is one of only 3 providers.
