Don’t be disillusioned, underfloor insulation is as important in Summer as it is in Winter. Many Melbournians think that the main benefit of underfloor insulation is keeping heat inside a home, but during the warmer months of the year, effective underfloor insulation can create a much more comfortable environment by keeping heat at bay and avoiding penetration through the floors, providing a cooler internal space.
Indeed, having sufficient insulation in your walls and ceilings will help to keep the Melbourne heat from turning your property into a hot box, but underfloor insulation is also essential to achieving the best all round climate control in Summer.
During the months of January and February, annual heat waves of 40 degrees plus often strike and can last up to 3 days in Melbourne, so it is best to ensure that your underfloor insulation is installed well, without cracks or gaps, before the new year starts. Unlike other areas, installing underfloor insulation can be retrofitted to most existing buildings if using a slimline, quality product and an experienced installer and is the best choice for new buildings too.
Underfloor insulation technology has come a long way in recent years, and it’s energy saving and cost saving capabilities can be dramatic. It is worthwhile upgrading or installing underfloor in your Melbourne property for adequate comfort and power savings during the extreme temperatures.
