In Australia’s winter months, especially in Canberra and the surrounding ACT areas, it can get extremely cold. When it’s cold, you likely utilise your home’s heating system more often, and because of this, your energy bills are much higher than in the summer months. You may dread opening your energy bill each month, expecting high numbers because you need your heating cranked up high to stay warm. You have likely asked yourself the question, “How do I reduce my monthly energy bills?” To solve your high energy bill problems, as well as answer this question, you need home insulation.
If you live in an older Canberra or ACT building, there is a good chance that it is not insulated. Many older Australian homes are not adequately insulated. What that means is that there are places throughout your home where heat can escape, resulting in your heating systems working harder to keep your home warm during the winter. Many of these leaks and gaps in your home aren’t visible to you. They occur in outer walls, ceilings, windows, and doors. Even the slightest crack can allow heat to escape and increase your utility costs. If you suspect that your home lacks insulation, contact us at Alexander Watson Insulation to get an assessment.
Why Should You Get Home Insulation in ACT?
Heating and cooling account for 50 to 70 percent of the energy used in the average home. If you want to see those energy bills decrease, you need to reduce the amount of energy used to heat and cool your home. This starts with proper insulation throughout your entire home. The common misconception is that heat rises and, if your ceiling is insulated, your home will retain heat. Heat, in fact, moves in all directions through the processes of conduction and radiation, meaning that any area of your home could allow heat to escape if not insulated.
We want you to be comfortable in your own home and save money. The two can go together if you have adequately protected your home. Insulation does that and is an easy process when done by experienced professionals like ourselves.
