Typical outcomes of an insulation upgrade in an existing home is a 6 to 7 degree Celsius increase in the overnight ambient temperature in winter and approx 5 degrees Celsius cooler in summer.

Ceiling insulation reduces window condensation, reduces heating and cooling costs, and greatly improves the efficiency of ducted heating or air circulation systems. Insulation will compress and become gappy after 15-20 years, where an insulation top-up is required.

Also consider using new LED lights, as traditional downlights will significantly reduce the effectiveness, even with new insulation.

Some of these comments will depend where you live and the time of year… but in general, the benefits of ceiling insulation include:

  • Help retain heat in winter
