Insulating your home properly is a key element in achieving energy efficient homes. The benefits to the individual are generally more comfort, lower energy costs and environmental emissions. For society, benefits include lower peak demand on electricity networks and lower network costs.
This talk will cover the ins and outs of insulating your home properly for the Queensland climate. As there are about 4 different zones in Queensland and most of us live in the SE corner, the focus will be on the sub-tropical climate. The talk will examine the use of bulk and reflective foil insulations and composite insulations, and their application. It will also cover the issue of condensation and vapour barriers.
