Optimo underfloor insulation helps reduce heat loss in winter through suspended timber floors. It works in the same way as ceiling insulation does, with the additional benefit of helping to stop draughts entering through timber floors. Optimo helps to keep homes snug in winter.
Reduces your heating energy use
Optimo helps to reduce heat loss in the same way as closing a window in winter. When heat is retained within the home it allows you to run heaters and air conditioners on lower settings. When these appliances work more efficiently they save you on reduced energy costs. Optimo can help you achieve a 6 star energy rating and meets VEET requirements.
Easy to install
Optimo has been designed to fit snugly between the floor joists to make installation easy. It can be fitted to new homes from above the joists using the unique Optimo Saddle system or easily fitted to existing floors from underneath the floor using the Optimo strap system. For more information, see Installing Optimo.
Helps keep your home quieter
External noise can enter your home anywhere that air can, even through suspended floors. Optimo acts as acoustic as well as thermal insulation. And by helping to reduce reverberation in suspended timber floors, Optimo provides a more solid feel underfoot. Research conducted by CSR shows that Optimo provides easily the best acoustic performance of any underfloor insulation in Australia.
