Heatwave-Resilient Insulation Upgrade

Brief Description:

This project aimed to upgrade the insulation in a suburban family home to enhance its resilience against the increasingly frequent and intense heat waves in Sunshine Coast, using Earth Wool insulation for its superior thermal properties.


Issues On Project:

Adapting the insulation to effectively combat heat penetration without compromising indoor air quality or causing moisture issues was a key challenge.



The upgrade significantly improved the home’s ability to maintain a stable and comfortable indoor temperature during extreme heat, reducing the need for air conditioning and leading to substantial energy savings.
