Poor insulation contributes to excess use of energy

It’s summer time, and the air conditioners and fans are running to keep the house cool. However, you may be using more energy than you need to during the summer months if your home is poorly insulated.

According to the Australian Department of Industry and Science, insulation can save you up to 40% in heating and cooling bills by keeping the heat out in the summer and warmth in for the winter. In an uninsulated or poorly insulated home, the energy that you use to heat or cool your home can leak out, meaning that you have to have your cooling or heating solutions running constantly to keep your house comfortable.

With proper insulation, you’ll be able to cool or heat your home to your desired temperature, and have your insulation keep that temperature consistent by preventing the energy from leaking out. This means that you’ll save on your energy bills as you’ll be less reliant on your energy or cooling solutions as the insulation will keep the hot or cool air in for longer!
