What is Loft Insulation?

All Posts

Did you know that an uninsulated home can lose as much as a quarter of heat through the roof? Heat rises, so if you don’t have loft insulation you could be at risk of higher energy bills and a much colder home which could make this winter less comfortable. A well-insulated house keeps warmth exactly where you need it – indoors. So your household will remain cosy, safe and affordable to run.

At UK Energy Management (NE) Ltd, our highly skilled team of tradesmen we are able to transform the performance of your roof space whilst fully rejuvenating the area giving a fully plastered blank canvas for decorating.

Loft Insulation

What does loft insulation do?

Loft insulation can be made from various materials but they all do the same job which is to slow down the transfer of heat between your living space and the outside world, creating a warmer home in winter and a cooler one in summer.

It is usually installed in rolls which can either be laid between the joists or the rafters. This kind of insulation between the joists can warm up your living space below as well as retain heat in the roof space as well.

Why is loft insulation needed?

If your loft has not been converted into an additional room, then you may think that making this area of your home energy-efficient is not effective. However, this is not the case. As mentioned, heat rises and a large amount can be lost through the roof if you don’t have insulation in place. Plus, the great thing about it is that loft insulation can last for more than 40 years before needing to be upgraded so it’s a great investment for reducing your energy bills.

What are the benefits of loft insulation?

Loft insulation is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to improve the energy efficiency of a property. You can experience almost instantaneous benefits and make this winter more bearable as well as throughout the year.

Reduce energy bills

Since loft insulation prevents heat loss this means that you can lower your thermostat and reduce the amount of time that your central heating is on during the day. As a result, your energy bills will be lower.

Better for the environment

Being more environmentally conscious is better for the planet and your pockets! Loft insulation can reduce your carbon footprint as you’ll be using less energy and therefore make your home greener.

Noise reduction

Insulation can also help to reduce noise pollution so you can enjoy a quieter, more peaceful home. You should see a noticeable reduction in outside noise, especially in the upper levels of your home.
