If you have a loft and it isn’t insulated, getting it sorted is one of the easiest and most effective ways to cut down on your household expenses. Loft insulation can save you hundreds of pounds in heating bills a year and can be installed and completed in a day for a standard sized property.
25% of all the heat lost from a house escapes through the roof. Loft insulation is like a woolly hat for your house, keeping the warm air in so you need less energy for heating. That way, the property is cosier and you’ll spend less on energy.
How does loft insulation work?
We insulate lofts using Knauf Earthwool, this material works like a blanket, keeping warmer air inside your house. Insulation is usually installed between the joists in your loft floor. This stops the heat from your home rising into the loft, and it’s quick and easy to install. This type is known as ‘cold loft’ insulation. Along with insulating the loft we also insulate water tanks, piping and where possible insulate and draught proof
the loft hatch.
How much loft insulation do I need?
It’s recommended that you insulate your loft to a depth of 270 to 300 mm.
Even if you already have loft insulation, it’s worth checking to see how much you currently have, as the guidelines have increased.
