Sourceable.net has reported (25/01/2016) that Australians are still overlooking the cost benefits of home insulation despite the recent focus on poor energy efficiciency of the country's built assets.

Sandra Skelly from Comfort Heat, a company that provides underfloor heating systems, says that architects are not specifying insulation and builders are not suggesting it either.  She also believes there is a reluctance about the upfront expense and a failure to realise long term cost benefits via improved efficiency.

Ms Skelly says that home insulation greatly improves the cooling and heating properties of a home.
