Improve your home energy efficiency and reduce your greenhouse gas emissions!
Bradford Comfortchoice lets you choose how comfortable, energy efficient and environmentally responsible you want your home to be.
By better insulating your home, you will reduce the temperature extremes, so you wont need to turn on your heating or cooling appliances for as long. This will result in a more comfortable home, with less energy used – saving you money and helping our environment.
Here are a few handy tips to help make your home a Bradford Comfortchoice home:
Bradford’s range of Gold Insulation for ceilings is available in a variety of R-values to suit all climate zones. We’ve recently developed the R6.0 batt, which can provide the highest levels of thermal comfort currently available to Australian homeowners.
You may also qualify for government funding for roof installation.
2. Install roof vents for a healthier home
Installing 1-2 roof vents is a simple and cost effective way to reduce heat build up in your roof space in summer and help make your ducted air conditioner work more efficiently, if you have one.
3. Install door and window seals to minimise draughts
Sealing up with door and window seals is a smart way to further improve the energy efficiency of your home.
4. Insulate under your floor boards for added comfort
Prevent heat loss through your floor boards by installing insulation. Insulation also helps absorb noise transfer.
5. Insulate your pipes for added energy savings
Save on energy costs by insulating around hot and cold water pipes. Easy to install, it also helps avoid unnecessary burns and accidents!
6. Double glaze your windows for more comfortable homes
Install double glazing to your windows, or shade your windows against the summer sun with trees, awnings or curtains.
7. Keep your windows and doors closed during summer
Prevent unnecessary heat from entering your home, by closing doors and windows during the midday heat of summer. Installing seals around the door frames will reduce this even more.
8. Close the doors to unused rooms during winter
By closing the doors of unused rooms, you’ll help prevent unnecessary heat loss, meaning your heater will not have to work as hard.
