Insulate your current home
Houses built before the 19950s, such as villas, bungalows and state houses, were not usually insulated.
As these houses tend to have high roof spaces and easy access to under floor areas, fitting insulation should be reasonably straightforward.
1950s to 1970s house
Houses were not required to be insulated during these decades until 1978, so insulation was not common.
The characteristic flat roofs of 1960s houses pose challenges for fitting ceiling insulation.
1980s to mid-1990s house
These houses often have some insulation and require topping up for more effective insulation.
Mid-1990s to 2000s house
Mandatory insulation requirements means houses of this era are well insulated. However, as insulation has a huge impact on a home’s warmth and comfort, it’s worth fitting insulation of a higher grade (more effective) than the minimum required.
