    Insulation Which One to Choose

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Government Rebates for roof insulation
    Some conditions apply but in a nutshell this is what it is

    * Save $200 plus off your energy bill this winter
    * Enjoy the comfort of a warmer home
    * Do your bit to help the economy & environment

    My question is which is the better insulation
    I need 165 mt sq for my roof space
    So far looked into getting

    1) Fibreglass or Earth Wool
    Comes in at + $300 in out of pocket expenses

    2) Sheep Wool
    Huge difference in price for sheep wool @ $3000 out of pocket extra

    Although I have read the for and against both types of insulation

    I like the fact that wool breaths but at what cost and is it worth the extra

    Any other good insulation ideas & products for me to look at

    NOTE: It must be heavy as I have a Cardiff Air system (huge fan in the ceiling) & dont want the stuff to blow around in the roof space

    My focus is to keep heat out and control humidity in our QLD weather & keep heat in 6 weeks of the year

    We did too.... 8-)

    Do a great job and none of the downsides of f/glass batts or any of the organic options.... These all break down over time and leave a residue which will find its way into your house, one way or another. Encapsulated f/glass is good but costs a lot more unfortunately....
