Sustainability Benefits Of Insulation

All Posts

Ensuring that a property is thoroughly insulated is one of the most cost-effective steps to improving energy efficiency. Some steps to improve heat retention within a property include the installation of loft insulation, cavity wall insulation and double-glazed windows. By reducing heat loss, comprehensive insulation installation means that less energy is required to heat a property. Whilst insulation solutions vary for each property, ensuring that every opportunity is taken to insulate your home means that your central heating system can heat the property optimally.

In addition to the benefits of saving money on utility bills, ensuring that a home is properly insulated is a key step that can be taken to reduce a home’s carbon footprint. Whilst the biggest improvements in energy efficiency are seen where insulation was not previously installed, significant improvements can also be seen where existing insulation is upgraded or re-installed in instances where the insulation was not properly installed or has become damaged.

Reduced Energy Usage

If a home is not properly insulated the heat loss means that significantly more energy will be required. In reducing heating requirements and improving heat retention within a property, insulation installation offers long-lasting sustainability benefits improving the value of homes and reducing excess energy costs required in compensating for heat loss.

Other Sustainability Improvements

Alongside upgrading insulation there is a range of other steps that can be taken to reduce the carbon footprint of a household. One of the main improvements that can be made is upgrading your boiler. Another step that can be taken is installing smart controls. This provides the option to control a wide range of heating functions using smartphones making energy-efficient heating easy and convenient to control.
