We all are in a very good understanding of how an insulation system works and how well it can benefit in winters. If the room upstairs is situated exactly above a heated room (like the room which has insulation setup) then it will automatically be heated and there will be no need of separately insulating that unheated room upstairs. However, if the unheated (UN insulated) room is above garage (which is not floor insulated) then it could be a serious issue to heat up the room above it. And there you will need floor insulation.
If one has already installed floor wall and loft insulation then heater bills will be cut down tremendously, but in order to save even better, next option should be the floor insulation. As per study and research; after floor insulation cost of heater bills reduced drastically up to $65 which is really a suitable amount for anybody. Generally floor insulation services in Melbourne reduces the chilliness in the room up to 15% as compared to non-insulated grounds.
In addition to this floor insulation results depends on the type of floors, there you got suspended floors (With floorboards), Solid floors (concrete) and or tiled floors. Approximately insulation process for a suspended timber floor gives the annual saving from $30 for a middle terrace house to $70 for a detached house, it will cost around $100 if do it yourself and with professional assistance $300 to $700. Secondly insulation of a solid floor saves approx… $ 40 for a middle terrace house and $54 for a detached house, due to type of floor it can only be done with some professional assistance which may cost around $ 800 to $2000. Moving forward filing gaps b/w floor and board can save about $ 30 and cost $ 20 to $30. Above mentioned are estimated cost and subject to change according to the size and area of the house, how easy it is to lift the floorboard of a house kind of factors. Suspended floors are when the boards rests over the joists. It can be really disruptive to move the board from above, it will be far better if insulation process done from the basement, if the floor is not accessible from underneath one will need to tackle it from the top, this is more disruptive as it involves moving the floor boards in order to fix the insulation in the joists, it involves clearing out the home furniture and other messy tasks and decoration.
