A large part of Australian’s energy bills are comprised of heating and cooling costs. Even with ceiling and wall insulation heat transference can still occur through floor. The raised wooden floors in older houses are often forgotten when it comes to insulation. With up to 15% of your heating be lost through the floor, underfloor insulation Perth is an important aspect to consider.
WHAT SOME OF OUR HAPPY CLIENTS HAVE HAD TO SAY...
Why you need to underfloor insulation
Wooden floors are also a poor insulator and they often absorb the heat of the room and transfer it to the cold air under the floor. Whilst carpeting and underlay do help limit the heat loss, it is often negligible. In real terms, this means a cold floor in winter that will feel cold to the touch. The answer is to install a reputable and effective thermal barrier between the floor and the external environment. This means warmer feet in winter, lower heating costs and a smaller carbon footprint.
