As part of the Australian Government’s nation building economic stimulus plan, they are offering free insulation to home owners (up to the value of $1,600). I’ve never been one to turn down a bargain, so naturally I arranged to get some installed. I managed to get the cellulose insulation which is supposed to be slightly more effective than regular batts. Hooray for free things! FYI – if you live in Queensland, the QLD Goverment’s ClimateSmart home service also offers up to 15 energy efficient globes, shower head and wireless energy monitor (free after $50 rebate if you live in the Brisbane City Council area).
