With today’s emphasis on saving energy (which includes saving of money) why don’t more people think about insulating underfloor.  Insulation has become foremost in our minds. Even if we are just interested in saving money or increasing our comfort we can contribute to reducing carbon emissions into our atmosphere as well.

In this article we are going to discuss using foam to insulate underfloor. This may not been thought of by many people who mainly think of roof insulation or wall insulation. Sub-floor insulation may not be effective for all types of buildings but if you have floors that are raised whether wooden or concrete. (concrete in a modern multi-storey building where acoustic problems may occur without it especially in apartments).

With the ever rising prices of heating, Insulating underfloor can become a boon for comfort and energy saving, especially if you have wooden floors. Some people say, “I have thick carpets to prevent this”. But hey! we live in Australia where we have to think of heat as well. There is nothing better than the feel of  a cool floor under your feet during heat waves notwithstanding that with sub-floor insulation, cooling heat loss and air-conditioning loss is prevented.
