Installing insulation correctly is crucial for both the builders of a domestic residence as well as for the occupiers. This video, created by the Master Builders Association of Victoria (MBAV), with support from ICANZ and its partners, informs and refreshes installers on key points to ensure that both glasswool batts and building wraps are installed correctly and effectively. This will reduce your risk as installers as well as provide better compliance with energy efficient housing requirements.
Key points include:
- Proper preparation prevents poor performance
- Installing batts – leave no gaps
- Installing wall wraps – start from the bottom and stay straight
These practices contribute to ensuring the integrity of the building envelope and therefore provide a better result for both you and your customer.
