Loft Insulation Grants
Heat from your house will rise resulting in about quarter of the heat generated being lost through the roof of an uninsulated home.
Insulating the roof space of your home is the simplest, most cost-effective way of saving energy and reducing your heating bills.
Insulation should be applied to the loft area to a depth of at least 270mm, both between the joists and above as the joists themselves create a “heat bridge” and transfer heat to the air above.
With modern insulating techniques and materials, It’s still possible to use the space for storage or as a habitable space with the use of insulated floor panels.
The Energy Saving Trust estimates that an annual saving of £250 is achieved on an average detached house in the UK.
Loft insulation. Professional installation is a must.
You are likely to be losing a third of your heating costs through your roof if your loft is insufficiently insulated.
Simply by insulating your loft to the recommended depth of 270mm you can save wasted energy and money.
A standard loft insulation installation comprises not only of the fitting of the loft insulation, but also the bringing up to Building Regulations standards, the lagging to the cold water tanks and the pipes at no additional cost. This means that there is no possibility of any pipes or tanks bursting during cold weather and the job is well done.
Your loft hatch will also be draught proofed and insulated where possible.
