MITREPLAN - INSULATION FOR YOUR HOME - Kevin Farrell

Every home should have ceiling insulation. It keeps you cooler in summer, warmer in winter and saves you money on power and heating bills.

Kevin has used Pink Batts.

All Batts have an R rating- the higher the number the better they perform. The first step is to work out how many bags and what size batts you need. Once you know your ceiling size and the spacing, Mitre10’s “MitrePlan - Insulation for your Home helps you calculate how many bags you will need.

Step 1 – Safety preparation. Make sure you’re wearing long sleeves or disposable overalls. You’ll need a mask, gloves, eye protection and a knife for cutting the batts.

Step 2 – Prepare the ceiling work area. Tread on joists only, not the gyprock.

Open the bags and start placing batts in corners and work back. Lay insulation tightly against plasterboard. Do not put batts over wiring or it could overheat. Leave at least 25mm spacing around the light fittings.

A broomstick or dowel with a point or nail at one end can be used to help you position batts that may be difficult to reach by hand. For example near the eaves.

It is crucial that the insulation covers all the ceiling of the house; so don’t forget the manhole cover on your way out.

MitrePlans are available at Mitre 10 stores across Australia.
On the Mitre 10 home page, hold your cursor over the “Do It Yourself” icon and click onto “Renovate It” then select the plan of your choice.

If you require further assistance don’t hesitate to call the Mitre 10 advice line.
