What Is Roof Insulation?

Roof insulation is creating a barrier to heat flow between the inside of your house and the outside world. As a result, insulation keeps the temperatures in your house to desirable levels – warm in winter and cool in summer.

There are different kinds of roof insulation, including:

Bulk insulation, which traps air in between its layers and therefore prevents heat loss or gain. It often uses different kinds of wool or fibre. This type of insulation is recommended for both winter and summer.
Reflective insulation, which reflects the radiant heat flow and prevents it from entering the house. This type of roof insulation uses reflective materials to be placed on top of the roof, and therefore are recommended mainly for summer.

Why Should I Insulate My Roof?

As the winter temperatures in Melbourne to their lowest, it is important to have your house insulated properly. This is especially important as Australian houses save on average $2000-$4500on their energy bills per year if they are properly Insulated. Your house will help you save on heating in winter, as well as air conditioning in summer.

Your house should be insulated from its roof to the foundations to get the best energy efficiency. However, during winter it is good to start with your roof as the top of your house is where the warm air concentrates. The roof loses around 25-35% of your house’s temperature, therefore it is important to have it insulated properly in order to save on energy bills.

What’s more, roof insulation can save you not only money, but also your health. World Health Organisation recommends a minimum temperature of 18 degrees for residential homes. With winter temperatures falling below that ,insulating your roof will help prevent your house from losing the warmth it gains during the day and will keep you and your family healthier.

You can insulate your roof when you’re building a new house or retrofitting an existing one. All new built houses are highly recommended to insulate for high energy efficiency standards. Therefore, you should definitely consider insulating your roof when building a new house.

Moreover, if you’re thinking of insulating in an existing home, roof is the way to go. This is because often walls and floors are difficult to be insulated in existing houses. Roofs, on the other hand, are relatively easily insulated and retrofitted. If your roof insulation is older than 10-15 years, you should consider renewing it to get the best insulation possible. This applies to winter and summer.
