    Description

    Optimo helps to reduce heat loss in the same way as closing a window in winter. When heat is retained within the home it allows you to run heaters and air conditioners on lower settings. When these appliances work more efficiently they save you on reduced energy costs. 

    External noise can enter your home anywhere that air can, even through suspended floors. Optimo acts as acoustic as well as thermal insulation. And by helping to reduce reverberation in suspended timber floors, Optimo provides a more solid feel underfoot.

     Use the Optimo Saddles & Straps to hold the insulation in place between the floor joists.

    FAQ

    Q: What types of insulation are best for Australian homes?

    Common types include fiberglass batts, rigid board, and reflective insulation. The best choice depends on your climate zone and specific needs.

    Q: How much insulation do I need for my home?

    The amount of insulation required depends on your home's location, size, and construction. Australian standards recommend different R-values (a measure of thermal resistance) for different climate zones.

    Q: What is the R-value, and why is it important?

    The R-value indicates the insulation's ability to resist heat flow. Higher R-values mean better insulation performance. It's crucial for energy efficiency and comfort.

    Q: Will insulation keep my house cool?

    Yes, insulation helps maintain a consistent indoor temperature by preventing heat from entering in the summer and retaining heat during the winter, thereby keeping your home cooler in hot weather.

    Q: How can I tell if my home is under-insulated?

    Signs include fluctuating indoor temperatures, high energy bills, and drafts. An energy audit can also help assess your insulation levels.

    Q: Can I install insulation myself?

    Most types of insulation can be DIY projects, assess your abilities as most DIY'ers can achieve an effective installation.

    Q: What are the benefits of insulating my home?

    Benefits include improved energy efficiency, reduced heating and cooling costs, enhanced comfort, and a smaller environmental footprint.

    Q: How long does insulation last?

    Properly installed insulation can last for decades. However, factors like moisture, pests, and settling can reduce its effectiveness over time.

    Q: Are there any government rebates or incentives for installing insulation?

    Some State and Federal programs offer rebates and incentives for energy-efficient home improvements, including insulation. Check with local authorities for any current offers.

    Q: Does insulation help with soundproofing?

    Yes, certain types of insulation, such as fiberglass batts, can reduce noise transmission, providing a quieter indoor environment.

    Q: What should I consider when choosing insulation materials?

    Consider factors such as R-value, material cost, installation method, environmental impact, fire resistance, and whether the material suits your specific climate zone.
