Free Insulation for Australian Homes
The Australian Government offers free insulation to up to 2.9 homes as a part of the $4 billion Energy Efficient Homes Package. This practical step aimed to help millions of households to reduce their energy use, cut their power bills by around $200 a year, and increase the comfort and value of their homes.
- The Homeowner Insulation Program. The Homeowner Insulation Program offers ceiling insulation worth up to $1,600 to owner-occupiers. The program targets homeowners who are currently uninsulated, or have ceiling insulation with an R-value of 0.5 or less.
If the total cost of installation is less than $1,600 there will be no more for the homeowner to pay. This will be the case for most homeowners, as the average cost to insulate a home is estimated to be $1,200.
- The Low Emission Assistance Plan for Renters. The Australian Government is offering up to $1,000 per home to help people install ceiling insulation in existing rental properties. The Plan targets rental properties that are currently uninsulated, or have ceiling insulation with an R-value of 0.5 or less. A landlord or tenant may apply, although a tenant must obtain permission from their landlord before installing ceiling insulation.
The free insulation program will start on 1 July 2009 and will run until December 2011. However, householders can get their insulation installed now, keep their receipts and claim a reimbursement from the Australian Government.
