Insulation is something that we need in most weathers. Unless, of course, it’s 20 degrees celcius outside.
It’s been freezing in Melbourne and other parts of Australia this winter. Record-breaking cold weather, in fact.
Okay, it’s not as cold as parts of Europe, but it’s still cold enough for people to get very sick and even lose their lives.
Unfortunately our scrappy buildings with thin insulation don’t help.
We should clothe our buildings like we clothe ourselves. If you’d like an easy book on why our buildings need comfy clothes (sounds so obvious, that’s why everyone is doing it… right?) something to read to your child, or your building designer, about your next building, buy our ebook from PodMarket.
One of our ebooks can be purchased here: Comfy Clothes.
If you want your next building to be toasty and warm when it’s freezing outside, then you need a building that has proper insulation and proper double glazed or triple glazed windows. You need a properly sealed building to keep out the drafts, with a properly designed ventilation system that works to bring in fresh air while keeping the temperatures comfortable.
We explain this a bit more in our blog “sustainable vs non-sustainable“.
Don’t be fooled by timber panels on the walls, or solar panels on the roof. These things do nothing in relation to comfort. They simply do not deal with what you really need to be comfortable inside.
Think about getting a building with Comfy Clothes.
