What Type of Insulation Solution Are You Looking For?
Knowing the best combination of insulation + ventilation for your home is dependent on a number of factors including location, aspect, windows and much more. The Energy Efficiency Centre can assess your particular situation and advise you of what’s best for you.
In terms of the type of insulation required, you can use the ‘deemed to comply’ insulation levels in the Building Code of Australia to establish the minimum level of insulation which would be required for a new home to comply. Then, add the right amount of wind powered vents for your size and shape home. Adding higher levels of insulation will provide even greater levels of comfort and energy efficiency all year long.
Ceiling insulation is generally considered to offer the simplest and greatest improvement to energy efficiency in houses. In fact, correct insulation can save up to 20% on your heating and cooling costs (Sustainability Victoria).
The Energy Efficiency Centre (also known as Southern Insulation), has been installing insulation into Adelaide homes for over 50 years and are specialists in helping owners of existing homes improve their ceiling insulation to achieve far greater living space comfort, improved performance of air conditioning and significantly reduced energy bills.
We offer removal services including vacuum removal of dust, debris and blow in / granular insulation, assessment of insulation requirements and supply and installation services.
EEC specialises in Bradford Gold Insulation which is designed to fit in almost any roof space found in Australian homes. Bradford Gold is made from glass spun like fairy floss to create millions of air pockets which impede the transfer of heat through the ceiling.
South Australia has one of the harshest climates in the world. By insulating your home, you can reduce the heat and minimise the use for air-conditioning. In return, you save money on energy bills and help the environment.
Similarly in winter a well-insulated home reduces the need for heating as the warm air stays contained within the house. Ceiling insulation batts come in a range of ‘R’ ratings or thicknesses.
Generally, the thicker the insulation the greater the effectiveness. Whether you’re building a new home or replacing insulation in an older home, EEC can help.
Or, if you choose to do it yourself, we offer competitive pricing on supply only sales as well.
Roofing Blanket Insulation
Insulation is proven to be one of the most effective ways of controlling temperature and reducing unwanted noise. Bradford Anticon combines 2 very effective forms of insulation into a single product to provide these benefits. Consisting of a reflective foil and glass wool insulation blanket, the reflective foil acts to reflect heat energy back into the home during colder periods, while the insulation blanket absorbs outside noise and dramatically slows the transfer of heat in and out of your home.
Roofing blanket can also be an excellent way to insulate a shed. Roof blanket can be used both under roof sheets and also to line walls. The result is a very cosy shed in winter and a cool space in summer.
EEC can provide expert advice on all aspects of wall insulation and provide a full quote, supply and fit service for the insulation in your walls.
The exterior walls of your home are the barrier between your comfortable living space and the weather elements outside. By including thermal insulation in the exterior wall it will provide a barrier to heat transfers in your home.
As with ceiling insulation, wall insulation is rated according to ‘R’ values, the higher the ‘R’ value, the more the effective the insulation.
We can also offer wall insulation batts to suit steel framed homes.
Rock Wool Insulation
Rock Wool is a highly durable, non-combustible insulation product designed for use at high temperatures (up to 650°C) in commercial / industrial settings. Our expert team can advise which product is right for you, but a typical domestic use would be lining a pizza oven with rock wool insulation. The product is also non combustible, making it well suited to meeting the BCA fire requirements.
Acoustic Insulation & Sound Proofing
Don’t forget the acoustics of your home.
Noises can annoy! Ever tried to get to sleep when you can hear the TV in the next room or unpleasant noises coming from the bathroom?
Acoustic insulation is denser and reduces sound transfer between rooms and noise from outside by up to 75%. It is typically installed in walls or between the first and second story of a home during construction.
You could also investigate soundproofing insulation batts as another alternative.
Bradford Sound Screen is Australia’s most trusted acoustic insulation because of its proven performance. It has long been regarded by architects and builders as the industry standard for acoustic insulation.
Polyester insulation (made from up to 80% recycled fibre) is versatile, easy to install and typically causes less skin irritation than regular glass wool products.
Bradford Polymax thermal insulation is designed to maximise comfort and save energy by making your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
Polymax can also help to control noise transfer between rooms.
Underfloor Insulation (Floor Insulation)
Whilst many homes in Australia have wall and ceiling insulation, floor insulation can be used to reduce heat transfer through suspended floors, reduce drafts and reduce floor reverberation giving a more solid feel. Floor insulation can also help to reduce noise transfer through subfloors.
EEC specialises in the Bradford Optimo range of floor insulation which makes installation or DIY easy by using a specialised support system.
During the construction phase of your home, wall wrap can make the building process more efficient by allowing some internal trades to commence work before completion of the external cladding or if bad weather interrupts the build.
This is called a ‘reverse build’ process and allows the internal rough-in of electrical and plumbing, wall batt installation, Gyprock linings and some internal trims to continue while the external bricks or cladding is being applied
As wall wrap is a pliable building membrane certified in accordance with AS/NZS4200.1, it is typically a water barrier which offers excellent weather protection and allows trades to continue inside even if work cannot continue outside.
When the weather presents a problem, employing this solution can save 2 to 4 weeks from a typical build cycle. Not only is the construction time generally quicker, the finished home also benefits from the additional protection and thermal performance of wall wrap.
Similar to roof blanket, building wraps can be an excellent way to insulate your shed, or ‘man cave’. The wraps can be used ether in new builds or for retrofitting existing sheds.
Building wraps also improve the overall ‘R’ rating of a building. This is important when it comes to energy star ratings and overall energy efficiency.
SARKING, SISALATION & FOILS
Roof sarking is positioned under your roof tiles or sheets during installation by the builder.
Bradford Thermoseal improves thermal performance by shielding the home from up to 97% of radiant heat and limiting storm driven rain from entering the roof cavity. The Building Code of Australia (BCA) mandates roof sarking on most new homes and those homes judged as being at risk in bushfire zones to satisfy Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) requirements.

Why should you insulate?
Without insulation, even the best designed and constructed home will allow heat to pass through external surfaces – as much as 42% of a home’s heat can transfer through the ceiling alone. The result is that in summer, your home will get hotter faster and in winter it will be harder to keep warm. Indeed, according to the Insulation Council of Australia and New Zealand, insulation reduces home heating and cooling costs by 30%.
Installing insulation is the most effective way to keep your heating and cooling energy costs down. It works by slowing the transfer of heat to keep your home more comfortable and reduce your heating and cooling energy use.
