Save Money with Loft Insulation Do you need your radiators on high just to keep your home warm in the winter? Is there a breeze in your house even when all the windows are closed? If this sounds like you, you could cut your energy bills in half by getting a loft insulation: Devon homeowners with loft insulation save hundreds of pounds every year. It is cheaper and easier to insulate your loft rather than your roof, but if your loft is being used as a living space then you will need to insulate your roof instead.
Installing loft or roof insulation is a simple and effective way to reduce heat loss in your home. We are sure you’ll agree, there's no point blasting the central heating if the warmth isn't staying inside your home. Insulation can reduce the overall costs of running a house, increase your home's energy efficiency rating and reduce your carbon footprint. Please note, if you want to use your loft for storage space, you can still have it insulated.
The method for insulating a loft is relatively simple. Using mineral wool, insulate between the joists and then lay rigid insulation boards on top. On top of the rigid boards, place wooden boarding. Loft floors must have 270mm of insulation to be effective. If there isn’t enough room you can raise the level of the floor to fit enough mineral wool beneath the new floor level. Be sure to wear protective gloves and a dust mask throughout. If your loft is inaccessible and you are struggling to instal your insulation, consider contacting an experienced roofing specialist for a quote.
