    Frequently Asked Questions

    Since the early 1970s, the insulation standards in the Building Regulations have been progressively introduced across Australia. The minimum insulation levels in the BCA vary according to climate zones and are expressed as total “R-Values” (this means each building element in either the ceiling, wall, or floor has an R-Value which when added together gives a total “R-Value). Currently, ceilings range from R-4.1 – 6.3, for walls R-2.8-3.8 and for floors R-1.0-3.25. If you’re unsure about the levels of insulation in your home you can arrange an inspection of your property by an approved insulation installer. We recommend purchasing the highest R- Value that your budget allows.
    Glasswool has been used globally for over 70 years and over 50 years of research has not found any cause and effect link between glasswool insulation and long term health problems. When using glasswool in Australia look for the EUCEB and or FBS-1 logo for quality assurance. Some types of glasswool insulation are also made without using a phenol formaldehyde binder, making them even safer to use in your home.
    No. Because glasswool insulation is made using glass it will not attract or provide a food source for rodents or insects.
    There are currently no national insulation subsidies. Some state governments are currently developing policies to encourage homeowners to improve the energy efficiency of their homes.
    Glasswool insulation has many benefits such as: 1. Making your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. 2. Making your home more energy efficient – this means making savings on your energy bills. 3. Reducing the transfer of unwanted noise from outside and between adjoining rooms.
