A polished timber floor may look nice and inviting, but looks can be deceiving, particularly in winter. If you’ve got a suspended timber floor which is not insulated, it can contribute to as much as 20% of heat loss during the colder months.
Whilst many homes in Australia now have insulation in their roofs and walls, if your home is built suspended off the ground this could be the unknown area where heat is leaking out of in winter and entering it in summer. Without insulation, your flooring material is the only thing between you and the elements. Heat can be lost and draughts can enter through the floorboards making your home (and your feet) cold and uncomfortable.
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. Being less reliant on your heating and cooling will not only save you money, but also help in reducing greenhouse gasses and your overall carbon footprint without needing to change your habits. Insulation is vital in creating your most comfortable and liveable home yet.
