Having effective roof insulation installed can reduce the heat lost from your home by 20% or more. You may already have loft insulation in place, but if this is not thick enough (or is incorrectly fitted) it may be allowing heat to escape – and the colder it is outside, the faster heat will escape from your home.
Correct loft insulation will provide a layer of material that is full of air pockets, which will trap heat and reduce the U value of your loft by around 95%. The U value measures how quickly your loft loses heat. The lower the U value, the less energy needed to keep your home warm.
Correct loft insulation is available from JUST £149 and will not only help keep your property’s temperature consistent — allowing you to stay warm in the winter months and cool during the summer — but will also prevents condensation.
Loft insulation also allows you to heat your home more efficiently, and significantly reduces your carbon dioxide emissions (a key contributing factor to climate change). If everyone in the UK installed 270mm loft insulation, we could save more than £700 million and nearly four million tonnes of carbon dioxide every year — that’s enough to fill Wembley Stadium nearly 500 times!
