According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, heating and cooling can account for more than 40% of a household's annual energy consumption. How people choose to heat and cool their homes therefore has great impact on their energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.

Clever use of building materials and insulation can mitigate the need for artificial climate control and keep household costs down.

When talking about sustainable building practices, James Cooper, director of Sanctum Design, says air-con is not an absolute necessity in Sydney. He commented that the significant majority of housing stock in Sydney is uninsulated.

Expol Underfloor Insulation is an ideal way to insulate your home to stop heat entering in summer. And, unlike running power hungry air conditioners, it’s a one off cost that can instantly make a difference to the comfort levels of your home this hot approaching summer.

Qualified Expol installers are available to fit the insulation panels to your underfloor to ensure your home is protected from the extreme temperatures under your floor.

Expol Underfloor Insulation is distributed in Australia by Foamex.

Foamex is an Australian owned and operated company with branches across NSW, Victoria, Queensland and South Australia. Supplying polystyrene products since 1982, Foamex has built strong relations with builders, engineers, architects, designers and specifiers all across the country.
