Insulation For Your Home
If your house isn’t properly insulated, you could be throwing money away. Insulation can be one of the most cost-effective ways to save energy and significantly reduce your heating bills.
We can help you apply for insulation and other energy grants and to help you reduce your energy bills and improve comfort levels in your home.
The first thing to consider if you are thinking of updating your home heating system is to improve your insulation. To maximise the use of natural resources and conserve energy with a new energy efficient heating system , it is vital to ensure you have the correct insulation installed. If your home is badly insulated you are likely to spend more money on a new powerful system to cover your energy needs and risk wasting money rather than saving it.
Good loft and cavity wall insulation can not only reduce your energy bills but also keep your home nice and cosy. Badly insulated homes can lose up to 45% of heat through walls and 25% through the loft. You can drastically reduce this heat loss and improve your home’s energy efficiency by installing loft and cavity wall insulation. This will also lead to reduced energy bills, cutting your energy bill by up to £315 a year with loft insulation and up to £255 per year with cavity wall insulation.
Insulation helps to keep the desired temperature in your house all year round, protecting against cold in the winter and excess heat in the summer. Insulation is also a good way to reduce noise pollution.
What is cavity wall insulation?
What is loft insulation?
Cavity wall insulation is one of the best and most affordable ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency.
Most commonly, houses in the UK have either cavity walls or solid walls:
Cavity walls are made of two layers with a gap or ‘cavity’ between them. Houses built after the 1920s are likely to have cavity walls.
Solid walls have no gap, so they can’t be filled with cavity wall insulation. If your home was Houses built before the 1920s are more likely to have solid external walls rather than cavity walls.
Cavity walls are insulated by injecting insulation into the cavity from the outside through drill holes in the external walls. Insulation is usually mineral wool, polystyrene beads or polyurethane foam
Loft insulation is one of the most simple and effective ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency and lower energy bills.
Loft insulation is usually made up of glass fibre or renewable wood fibre material which is used to create a barrier in the roof space and prevent heat from escaping.
