R4.0 Glasswool Ceiling Insulation - $238
R2.0 Soundscreen insulation batts to Rumpus Internal Walls - $612
Our quote reads:
"R2.5 insulation batts to ceiling and sisalation to walls (excludes Garage and Alfresco). SEAV 6 star energy rating compliance."
Do we have to ask for upgrade during tender process for R 4.0 insulation for ceiling to make it 6 star energy efficient?
What the upgrade level for walls insulation beside soundscreen?
Another question from double stories owners, did you build a store under staircase or left it just empty?
Advice from others has been to wait for Tender to see what the 6 star energy rating is for your particular house. Every house is different and depends on any changes that you make and I believe the orientation of your house on your block. I think then at Tender you can then ask for quotes to upgrade any of your insulation. Our 6 star listed R3.0 glasswool ceiling which we upgraded to R4.0. Also listed R2.0 glasswool external wall insulation with sisalation foil, so we didn't need to upgrade the external walls as it was already part of the 6 star. You might want to do a search on H1 regarding insulation and see what advice others give on different topics.
The staircase in our house design already has a storage room under the stairs.
+1 Our 6 Star required 4.1 Glasswool in the ceiling and R2.0 glasswool in the external walls. We upgraded the ceiling to R5.0 Glasswool. We are not having storage under the stairs at this point.
