1. HAZARDOUS INSULATION
Often loose insulation is removed from the ceiling cavity because it has started to breakdown sparking health and safety concerns. It has been found that old insulation such as cellulose fibre (pump-in paper) and batts that are located in your ceiling cavity can also be a fire hazard, as they are commonly known to come into contact with down lights, exhaust fans and other heat sources in your roof. Asbestos contaminated insulation is also a big health and safety concern!
2. UPGRADE YOUR INSULATION
The quality of insulation that was produced 15 – 20 years ago does not compare to the new and improved insulation materials that are on the market today. Having the latest insulation material installed in your ceiling cavity is a cost effective way to create a thermal and acoustical barrier from unwanted noise pollution and the unpredictable weather conditions that Queensland homes commonly experience. Upgrading your current insulation, may potentially save 20 – 30% on your heating and cooling bills!
We choose to use Anticon Roof Insulation for our roof replacements. This quality product from Bradford reduces the risk of condensation, increases your roof’s acoustic and thermal qualities, and improves fire resistance.
3. YEARS WORTH OF DUST
Over the years, dust can accumulate in the ceiling cavity which can prove to be a major health concern to you and your family. Having your ceiling cavity vacuumed every few years can ensure that you are protected from harmful, toxic dust.
