Over the life of a building, efficient insulation will more than pay for itself

 The upfront costs of insulation can be unappealing, but over the life of a building, insulation will pay for itself and end up saving you in the long run!


An efficiently insulated home insulated with products such as Foamex’s Styroboard Expanded Polystyrene Sheets enjoy a higher R-value than uninsulated homes. This means that the home’s thermal resistance is superior: heat that is outside stays outside, and the cool air that’s inside stays inside, and vice-versa. This will save you on your heating and cooling bills at a rate of 40% according to the Australian Department of Industry and Science!

These savings mean that your investment in insulation effectively starts paying for itself as soon as your receive your next energy bill. Estimates vary, but sources such as the Insulation Council of Australia and New Zealand (ICANZ) and Western Australia’s Department of Commerce forecast that correctly installed insulation will pay for itself in 3 to 6 years. After that, it’s all savings!

Foamex’s Styroboard EPS insulation solution is the ideal insulation solution to take advantage of the long-term savings potential of an insulated home. Lightweight, strong, clean, and easy to handle, Styroboard EPS offers a high level of thermal resistance for your home as well as sound-proofing qualities for a more comfortable home or building.
