It plays a significant role when considering the right options for insulating a home or commercial building. With estimates of up to 50% of heat loss/heat gain happening through the ceiling space, it is easy to understand why.

What is ceiling insulation?

It generally refers to an insulating product placed between or across ceiling joists within the roof cavity.

Insulation products installed underneath the roof tin or tiles are referred to as roof insulation and have a different role in the total insulation of a building.

The most common and useful ceiling insulation types:-

Glasswool Ceiling Batts is a bulk insulation batt made from recycled glass and other raw materials, designed to fit neatly between roof joists. Positively performance for a low cost. The most popular brands are Earthwool Batts, Pink Batts & Gold Batts

Polyester Ceiling Batts is a bulk insulation batt made from recycled plastic designed to fit neatly between roof joists. Softer, less itchy, longer-lasting, moisture resistant, non-respirable. The most popular brands are Higgins, Autex, and Poly Batts

Real Wool Ceiling Batts is a bulk insulation batt made from real sheep’s wool designed to fit neatly between roof joists. Soft, non-itchy, safe, eco-friendly, recyclable, and highly effective. The most popular brand is Higgins Insulation.

Loose-fill cellulose fiber is a bulk insulation product made from mashed up newspapers and other cellulose fibers. However, Rather than being formed into a batt, the fibers are blown randomly into the ceiling cavity to fill the joists’ spaces. Cheap to produce, recycle waste paper.

Some foil insulation products are sold as insulation, like concertina batts and triple foil batts. Insulation Easy Australia believes these are dangerous to install as insulation on the ceiling and suggest they are more suitable for consideration as roof insulation.

Which type is the best?

The best type of insulation for you is dependent on the current project you have and your personal preferences and objectives.

No matter what type you choose, with up to 50% of heat transfer taking place through the ceiling at home, the objective should be to maximize your insulation in the area.

All thermal insulation sold in the country must have an R-Value, which evaluates its thermal insulating effectiveness, stated on the packaging. The higher the R-Value, the more influential the insulation product will be at insulating.

With regard to insulation, the Building Code of Australia divides the country into eight climate zones. It sets out a recommendation for what level of R-Value insulation you should use, depending on the climate zone.

A lot of people are now choosing to insulate their homes and offices at higher levels.
