Warm home delights family
For Juliet and Ben Herlihy, fitting Pink® Batts® insulation in their home was an easy decision to make. They had lived in their house during the previous winter and it was freezing.
Juliet says, “The house had no insulation and was cold and damp. With two small children and another on the way, we didn’t want to have to live through another winter like that one.”
The Herlihys had Pink® Batts® ceiling insulation fitted in their roof and put Pink® Batts® SnugFloor® insulation under their floor boards. They also had a vapour barrier laid under the house to stop damp rising up into the house and a heat pump installed.
The Herlihys say that the difference in their home is amazing.
“It’s like a different house now – so warm and dry,” says Juliet. “Our home is very easy to heat and it stays warm all day, even if it has been empty. It’s lovely to come home to.”
The Herlihys have noticed another big difference – their smaller power bills. Juliet says their energy costs are noticeably lower compared with last year, even with a baby in the house.
Juliet said they decided to have their insulation professionally installed, so they could be confident of a quick and expert job. The family was eligible for the government’s ENERGYWISE™ subsidy, which contributed $1300 to their insulation costs.
The Herlihys are very happy with their newly insulated home.
“We would thoroughly recommend putting in insulation. It is certainly the best money we have ever spent on a house and has improved our comfort and quality of life significantly, while saving us money.”
