Installing ceiling insulation is a good idea to keep the inside of the home warmer in winter and stop a fair amount of the heat in the roofspace entering the home through the ceiling in summer.
HOWEVER WITH INSTALLING CEILING INSULATION THERE IS THE ABSOLUTE NEED TO INSTALL AN EFFECTIVE ROOF VENTILATION SYSTEM
For example during the home insulation program fiasco of the Rudd Labor Government, many people complained that after insulation was installed their home was hotter than it was before.
Without effective roof ventilation the true value of ceiling insulation will be compromised see BLOG on this site “Warning! Read Before You Design Your Next Housing Project”.
In summer insulation can only stop so much heat entering the home from the roofspace, this trapped heat can be in excess of 70° C. Excessive heat buildup from the roofspace is radiated through the ceilings to the habital areas below.
The excessive heat buildup in the roofspace can be relieved by an effective roof ventilation system, the advantages of an effective roof ventilation system are less costs associated with cooling and a much more comfortable environment to live in.
In winter insulation can further exacerbate the problems of condensation again we direct you to the BLOG on this site “Warning! Read Before You Design Your Next Housing Project”.
So you see insulation without effective ventilation could be likened to putting the cart before the horse (it is easier to pull than to push).
Universal Tile Ventilators are systems that will cost effectively ventilate your roofspace, never need repair or replacement.
For a one off cost keep your home cool in summer and your roospace dry 24/7 all year round, you can’t beat that.
