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.

We Use Earth Wool, But What Are The Australian Standards For Insulation?

Insulation products in Australia fall into two primary categories – bulk and reflective.

These can sometimes be merged to create a composite material. Each of these materials is designed for thermal insulation in buildings. In Australia, all insulation materials sold must adhere to the Australian Standard AS/NZS 4859.

This standard ensures that the insulation materials are safe, effective, and suitable for use in our unique climate. Rest assured, at Insulation Guru Brisbane, we only use products that meet or exceed this standard, providing you with optimal thermal comfort and energy efficiency for your home or business.

How We Use Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging, our not so secret weapon.

Thermal Imaging Test insulation Guru Brisbane
Why We Use Thermal Imaging

FREE Thermal Imaging Test with every quote.

At Insulation Guru Brisbane, we use advanced techniques like thermal imaging to pinpoint the hot spots in a house. These are areas where heat is either escaping or entering, indicating where insulation is needed most.

Through thermal imaging, we can detect differences in temperature on surfaces, creating a visual map of cold and hot spots. For home insulation, these images vividly reveal areas where insulation is either lacking or improperly installed. You can easily spot these as warm spots in the thermal image due to the heat leaking out during winter or creeping in during summer.

By leveraging this technology, we’re able to effectively evaluate a property’s insulation needs, taking into account factors such as the building’s size, design, and specific thermal characteristics. This ensures that we’re not just installing insulation haphazardly, but strategically placing it where it’s most needed.

Our use of thermal imaging emphasises our focus on efficiency and precision. It’s a clear demonstration that effective placement of insulation is more crucial than simply having lots of it. It’s all about quality over quantity – it’s far better to have well-placed insulation targeting specific areas, rather than filling up space with material that may not serve a significant purpose.

Our application of thermal imaging allows us to provide custom insulation solutions that cater to the specific needs of each home. This approach not only boosts the effectiveness of the insulation but also promotes energy efficiency and cost savings for homeowners.

Highest R Value insulation

What is the best R-value insulation
In Australia?

The optimal R-value for insulation in Australia varies depending on the local climate and the design of your home. Generally, in colder regions like Melbourne, Sydney, or Adelaide, we recommend an R-Value of R2.5 for external walls and R5.0 or even R6.0 for the ceiling.

In the context of Brisbane, our Earthwool insulation is an excellent choice. It’s effective, safe, and free from harmful chemicals often found in other types of insulation. Made from recycled glass bottles, Earthwool insulation batts are a sustainable and eco-friendly option that’s easy to handle and install, providing superior comfort and energy savings throughout the year.

Earthwool’s high thermal performance aligns with the recommended R-Values for Australian climates, making it particularly suitable for homes in Brisbane. It combines environmental sustainability, cost-efficiency, safety, and high insulating performance.

The ‘R’ in R-Value represents ‘resistance’ – how well the material resists heat flow. The higher the R-Value, the better the insulation, leading to a warmer home in winter and a cooler one in summer. Therefore, investing in high R-Value insulation like Earthwool can lead to significant energy savings over time. Trust in Insulation Guru Brisbane for all your insulation needs.

Highest R Value insulation

What is the best insulation for roofs in Australia?

In Australia, finding the right roof insulation is guided by several elements including the local climate, budget considerations, and specific requirements of your home. Numerous options are available for consideration. Bulk insulation, made from materials like fibreglass, glass wool, wool, or cellulose, is a popular choice, working by trapping air pockets. Rigid Foam insulation also enjoys a good reputation, with various well-known brands on offer in the market.

Among these numerous options, one insulation type shines – Earthwool insulation. Not only is it cost-effective, but it also excels in heat retention, making it perfect for Australia’s varied climate conditions. Its eco-friendly nature further enhances its appeal. In particular, the R4.0 Knauf Earthwool Ceiling Insulation is among the most budget-friendly choices on the market.

While the choice of insulation can depend on a range of factors, Earthwool insulation provides an excellent balance between cost, efficiency, and environmental sustainability. This is why many professionals, such as those at Insulation Guru Brisbane, prefer to use Earthwool insulation for their projects.

If you’re thinking about enhancing your insulation in readiness for the impending summer, or require insulation removal services, don’t hesitate to get in touch for a quote. You can also look into other services such as deep roof cleaning, underfloor insulation, and wall insulation.

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.

The Different Kinds Of Insulation In Australia

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: A prevalent form of insulation utilised to hinder heat transfer via the roof of a home.
  • Bulk Insulation: This encompasses materials like batts, loose-fill, and rigid foam boards. They operate by confining tiny air pockets within their structure, thereby lessening heat flow. Earth Wool is a variant of bulk insulation, albeit without the detrimental chemicals.
  • Reflective Foil Insulation: This insulation variety reflects radiant heat away from the home, aiding in maintaining cooler temperatures during summer. We often use this type in combination with Earth Wool.
  • Insulation Batts: These are pre-cut insulation segments that can be effortlessly fitted between your roof's joists. Earth Wool is a type of insulation batt, but it is not the harmful pink insulation batt.
  • Glasswool (Fibreglass) Insulation: This is one of Australia's most favoured choices due to its efficacy and cost-effectiveness. However, the Formaldehyde it contains can pose a risk to children and pets.
  • Foam Insulation: This insulation form is sprayed into position and then expands to fill gaps, but it contains numerous harmful chemicals that create the expanding foam.
  • Polyester, Natural Wool, Glass Wool, and Rockwool Batts: These are all appropriate materials for ceiling insulation, providing various advantages depending on the specific requirements of the home.
