Keeping heat out of the house during Queensland’s harsh summer months can be a tough feat. Because the air in Queensland is often very humid, heat is conducted in the moisture and can permeate into every room, nook and cranny of the house. This leads to mouldy cupboards and draws, and warped wooden walls, furniture and fittings. Heat can also be bad for your body, leading to heat exhaustion, the dreaded summer flu and a host of other ailments. Keeping your house cool during summer is not only a necessity for home maintenance in Queensland, but also for your health. If you want to beat the summer heat, it’s time to consider insulation for your home. More than just your home’s best friend in winter, insulation can help you with temperature control at every time of year. Here are a few ways it can help you out when you’re battling the sweltering sun.
