As you are aware, the TAC is endeavouring to provide authoritative advice on energy ratings of homes through displays, competent technical advice and industry training in energy rating software. The Federal government and Victorian state government are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by reducing household energy consumption. In Victoria, new homes will soon need to comply with “5-star” energy design requirements as part of building applications. Timber construction has a vital part to play because of its environmental benefits, low energy of production (embodied energy), insulation properties and importantly, its natural feel and creation of a healthy living environment. Wren Concertina FOIL BATTS under timber floors and in weatherboard walls will be an important partner to the achievement of energy efficient house design because of their reflective properties and creation of beneficial airspaces.   Easily installed during construction, Wren Concertina FOIL BATTS significantly reduce winter radiant heat loss in floors and walls as well as greatly reducing summer radiant heat gain through timber-clad walls. Installed properly and in conjunction with sensible house design, Wren Concertina FOIL BATTS should assist in achieving energy savings and a more comfortable living environment. Yours sincerely, Nick Livanes.  Manager- Market Development
