Without insulation, the ceiling of your property is the largest contributor to where heat escapes. This can be up to 35% of your total heat loss. The easiest way to prevent this is installing ceiling insulation. Most Victorian homes already have some form of ceiling insulation but, if it has been in your roof for a while, it may not be performing as well as it could. If this is the case, consider upgrading with new insulation and talk to the experts at No Gap Insulation today.
In summer, extreme amounts of heat can enter the home through the roof and in winter it is quite easy for the heat to escape and the cold to trickle through. Including thermal insulation in the ceiling will act as a barrier to the heat flow in and out of your home. Ceiling insulation is specifically designed for this and comes in a range of thicknesses suitable for different climate zones within Australia.
Ceiling insulation is normally installed from below the ceiling during construction the period. If you are renovating or wanting to install insulation in an existing home, access to the roof space will be required to do so.
The R-value of the insulation needs to be considered when choosing the correct type for the ceiling. R-value refers to the thermal resistance and is the factor that determines the efficiency of thermal insulation. Depending on what kind of climate you live in, there are certain requirements on what R-value is needed for your project. If you’d like to learn more on R-value, then check out our blog!

A well-insulated home is an investment that will pay itself back in a mere couple of years, as you will be saving up to 50% off your energy bills.
