Frequently Asked Questions:


Q: What type of insulation is best for ceilings?
A: 
There are a number of different types of ceiling insulation - Ranging from blown in loose fill cellulose to high quality batts of differing materials.

When ecoMaster started, the company started by conducting extensive R&D on the available forms and materials on the market. Culminating in the hiring of a cool room so we could conduct trails to determine what works in a real world setting. At the end of our tests, there was 1 clear winner. Polyester batts. They’re durable, easy to work with, long lasting, and aren’t itch inducing. What more could you ask for? After installing insulation in ceilings for 18 years we can say we have developed a certain amount of experience and sophistication - insulation connoisseurs if you will - and we know for certain that polyester batts are, hands down, the best.

 

Q: What R value is needed for ceiling insulation?
A: The performance of insulation is measured in terms of R Value, which stands for ‘Resistance Value’. The Building Code of Australia requires a minimum value for new homes of R3.5 in the Melbourne area and R4.3 in colder areas of Victoria (excluding plasterboard rated at R0.7).

Follow this guide to determine whether or not your home is properly protected.

Our polyester insulation batts are fitted in between your ceiling joists enabling complete coverage for optimal effectiveness.

It should be noted that on an international basis Australian Standards for insulation lag significantly, behind large portions of the developed world.  Just ask a Canadian where they are warmer!! 


Q: Do ceilings need to be insulated?
A: Yes!  Without effective ceiling insulation your home cannot possibly protect you from extremes of temperature.   Up to 45% of your home's heat leaves via your ceiling.  The single most effective form of home insulation you can have is ceiling insulation. Without it your home simply can’t be energy efficient.  

Ceiling insulation works by reducing the flow of heat through the ceiling of your home.  During hot summer days the temperature in the attic (the space between the ceiling and the roof) can routinely be as hot as your average sauna.  Ceiling insulation places a protective layer between you and the heat in your attic.  It makes it much more difficult for this heat to travel through the ceiling and into your rooms, keeping your home much cooler.

Likewise, in the winter time, the warmest air in your home rises to the ceiling.  Ceiling insulation makes it much more difficult for the heat in that warm air to pass through into the cold attic.  This means your heating stays in your home longer making your home warmer and greatly reducing your heating requirements.

Ceiling insulation effectively acts as a temperature stabilizer slowing down the movement of both hot and cold temperatures. In an ideal scenario the insulation is able to be effective for (roughly) 12 hours per day when your home is experiencing unpleasant external conditions.

And did you know that a tiny 5% gap in your ceiling insulation reduces the effectiveness of your insulation by 50%!  So not only is it important to have ceiling insulation, it is important that it is very well installed, with no gaps!


Q: How much ceiling insulation do I need?
A: Often we find that, while many homeowners agree that insulation is important and they assume that they have some level of insulation in their ceiling, we rarely meet people who know exactly how much insulation they have overhead.

As you know, heat rises. This means in the winter, an uninsulated ceiling will let your expensive heating escape up through the ceiling. No matter how much you turn up your heater, you’ll be struggling to keep warm and the only thing going up will be your bills!

In summertime, the radiant heat from outside becomes trapped in your roof space, letting the severe outdoor temperatures push down into your home. If you have an air conditioner, it will be working hard trying to cancel out this heat; costing you a fortune.

The level of insulation you will need. Depends upon the level of cover you already have, the zone you live in, and how comfortable you wish to be. 

For the Melbourne and Sydney area the Building Code of Australia 2012 specifies a ceiling insulation cover minimum R-value of R4.6 through to R5.1 depending on the type of roof.  In colder areas R6.3 is the minimum level specified.   An important distinction needs to be made between ‘minimum’ and ‘best practice’.  

Generally at ecoMaster we take a ‘best practice’ view towards attaining the best possible results.  However, the building industry focuses on ‘minimum standards’. Invariably today’s minimum standard are tomorrow’s inadequacies.  This is because over time, minimum standards are increased and this leaves the homes that only just met minimum standards well behind. For instance the new Energy Efficiency Rules for Landlords being proposed in Victoria will mean that many homes will have to install additional ceiling insulation as they no longer meet minimum requirements.


Q: What do I do about halogen downlights in my ceiling?
A: If your home is fitted with halogen down-lights, it is best to replace them prior to installing ceiling insulation so that the best possible ceiling coverage can be achieved.  Aside from the fire risk and draught concerns both of which are associated with halogen down-lights, LED downlights that are IC4 (IC standing for Insulation Contact) rated can be insulated over the top.    Refer to Section 4.5.2.3 of Australian Standard AS:NZS 3000 (2007).


Q: Can you lay insulation on top of old insulation?
A: If you have existing ceiling insulation, rest assured that it can remain in place.  You should level out any existing loose-fill insulation, or fill in any gaps in your existing batts, before topping up with our high quality product to ensure the best thermal protection for your home.


Q: Does it have a warranty?
A: Value Poly comes with a 50 year manufacturer warranty.


Q: Can I return insulation?
A: Returns can only be made within 30 days of purchase and will incur a 20% restocking fee.  For a successful return of insulation, the bags must not be opened.
