On the first phone call Joshua answered from My Install Guru. He provided excellent product information and recommendations and throughly explained the entire process of our underfloor insulation job. He is prompt with correspondence, quoting and is competitively priced. His outstanding communication truly reassured me prior to proceeding with the work and kept me informed at all times. James from My Install Guru was our installer for the day and installed Higgins R 3.5 Polyester Batts between joists and strapped them, his attention to detail was extraordinary and workmanship was executed with precision. Overall, My Install Guru is a pleasure to do business with and I can easily and comfortably recommend their services to anyone without any hesitation. Avoid wasting your time with other insulation contractors. If you need insulation then you don’t need to look any further than My Install Guru! Thanks Joshua and James! Lee

Amy,Shaun and James were brilliant and professional, ignored the 2.5 metre diamond python skin in the ceiling and removed the old bats and the terrible blown in insulation covering it. They worked tirelessly. Would recommend without hesitation. PS. the owner of the skin had left the scene and vanished into the forest next door.

Dangers of Old Insulation
Vacuum removal of old insulation

Dangerous particles & Chemicals
Not all insulation is made equally

Blow-in Insulation: Understanding the Risks

Blow-in insulation has gained popularity due to its ease of installation and effectiveness in reducing energy loss. However, it is essential to acknowledge the harmful impacts of this type of insulation and the dust it produces.

Dangers to Consider:

  • The dust generated during blow-in insulation installation consists of microscopic particles that can have detrimental health effects.
  • Prolonged exposure to these dust particles can lead to various conditions, including respiratory issues, allergies, and even long-term lung damage.
  • To avoid contamination of the air and maintain indoor air quality, it becomes crucial to remove and thoroughly clean the ceiling space before installing new insulation, whether it be insulation bats or blow-in insulation.
  • Neglecting this step can compromise the indoor air quality and put the occupants’ health at risk from countless microscopic dust particles that contaminate the air.
  • Therefore, prioritising the removal and cleaning of the ceiling space is vital to ensure a healthy environment free from airborne hazards.

It is important to take appropriate safety measures when installing blow-in insulation to protect yourself and your loved ones.

How Insulation Works

Key Areas For Roof Insulation

Heat Collection

The top of the roof is where heat gathers most due to the way heat risees, without an adequate peak distance from the house interior, the upper levels of houses will overheat without insulation installed in the roof.

Solar Panels

Solar Panels are your friend in protecting your house from direct rays from the sun, however wihtout adquate insulation under these heat gathering panels, it will have a significant heat impact on your roof space.

Tin Roof or Bondeck

Bondeck or tin roofs are magnets for the heat, in these types of roofing systems insulation has the most marked impact on transforming the way heat affects the building.

Sun Facing Side

Consider using thicker earth wool insulation batts on the part of the sun facing side. All insulation doesn't have to be uniform in size, but needs to be carefully calculated based on how the heat impacts your family home.

Low Edged Roofing

Where the edge of the roof doesn't extend very far heat is felt quite quickly. Stopping the heat extending further into the house can be prevented with the use of Earth Wool Insulation Batts.

Garage or Flat top roofing

These types of roofs collect heat quite fast, hvaing insulation in these large sections will have a significant impact on the heating of your household and the cooling requirements.

Lower Roof Edges

Lower roof edges need to extend as much as possible to shield the house edges from the suns harmful rays. while insulation doesn't need to be put in direct contact with this portion of the roof, it certainly doesn't hurt.

Earth Wool Roof Insulation Installation

There are many different kinds of roof insulation out there, but the safest for you and your family is Earth Wool. All natural, with no harmful chemicals like what has traditionally been used in Australia, and is still being used in cheap insulation installs. Earth wool roof insulation replaces old:

  • Ceiling Insulation: This is a common type of insulation used to prevent heat transfer through the roof of a house.
  • Bulk Insulation: This includes materials such as batts, loose-fill, and rigid foam boards. They work by trapping tiny pockets of air within their structure, reducing heat flow. Earth Wool is a type of bulk insulation, except without all the harmful chemicals.
  • Reflective Foil Insulation: This type of insulation reflects radiant heat away from the house, helping to keep it cooler in summer. This kind can be used in conjuction with Earth Wool and is something we do.
  • Insulation Batts: These are pre-cut sections of insulation that can be easily fitted between the joists in your roof, Earth Wool is a kind of insulation batt. However it isn't the dangerous pink insulation batt.
  • Glasswool (Fiberglass) Insulation: This is one of the most popular choices in Australia due to its effectiveness and affordability. However the Formaldehyde is quite dangerous to children and animals.
  • Foam Insulation: This type of insulation is sprayed into place and then expands to fill gaps, however has many harmful chemicals that create the expanding foam.
  • Polyester, Natural Wool, Glass Wool, and Rockwool Batts: These are all suitable materials for ceiling insulation, offering different benefits depending on the specific needs of the house.
