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.
