- Improved levels of comfort. An insulated building provides a more comfortable living environment and helps to keep out draughts.
- Fuel bill savings. Insulated homes retain their heat much better and therefore require less heat to maintain a comfortable temperature, which results in a reduction in your fuel bills.
- Contributes to lowering carbon emissions. Your building will require less heat to be sufficiently comfortable, reducing your CO2 emissions.
- Stops sudden temperature changes.
- Can help to reduce condensation
How it works
Heat rises and if your property is not sufficiently insulated, approximately a third of an uninsulated property's heat will be lost through the roof. Loft insulation prevents this.
To install loft insulation, an installer would lay white mineral wool between and over the joists on the loft floor of your property. The insulation creates a barrier to the hot air that is rising from the lower levels of the property towards the roof. The air pockets in insulation trap the hot air and prevent it from being lost into the atmosphere.
If the property's loft has previously been insulated, you will want to ensure it meets the current standard of 270mm (10.5 inches). We offer a free survey of loft insulation to check the depth of your existing insulation and will advise on any improvement. Typically, insulation is topped up to 270mm by cross-laying to achieve optimum thermal resistance.
