Why should I insulate my home?

By Laura Davies | Posted June 18, 2018

Need a reason to insulate your home? We've got seven! There are several ways to insulate your home – so we'll run through the benefits and then outline the most common household insulation techniques. So get ready to discover why insulation is the key to a happy, healthy and cost-effective house.

1. Save energy

The first fantastic benefit of insulation? You'll save energy! As your home is warmer in winter, you will use far less energy to keep it cosy.

2. Lower your bills

We're all looking at ways to lower our energy bills. Naturally, if you're using less energy, yo'll also be spending less money on your bill. Many homes needlessly lose heat – with proper insulation, you'll see savings almost immediately.

3. Be environmentally-friendly

Don't feel blue about your green efforts. Did you know that insulating your home is an eco-friendly act? By using less energy, you're reducing your carbon footprint. A win for your home and a win for the planet. Need some energy efficiency tips? We've got plenty!

4. Improve your energy efficiency rating

Did you know that your home's EPC rating (Energy Performance Certificate)  indicates how much it costs to heat and light? It also shows you how you can improve energy efficiency. Adding insulation can significantly improve your EPC rating. If you're in the process of buying or selling a home, having a good EPC rating can add value to the property. This means you can either sell your home for more or purchase an energy-efficient home that will save you money on your energy bills.

5. Keep healthy

Keep your home cosier, keep mould away and stay healthy!

6. Thinking long-term

If you're thinking long-term – insulation is a huge positive for when you sell. Making sure your home is fully insulated can improve your EPC rating and therefore make your home more attractive to buyers.

7. The Great British Insulation Scheme

Are you having trouble with the expenses involved in installing insulation? The government has launched a scheme that offers grants to customers who need assistance with insulation installation. Our primary goal is to assist our customers in accessing these schemes by working with reliable insulation installers who can suggest the most effective insulation solution for your household. By doing so, we can work together to address the issue of inefficient and drafty homes in the UK, while also helping customers decrease their energy bills.

Insulation types

Cavity wall insulation is quick and easy to install in eligible homes. It fills the gaps in your walls and keeps your house warm for less.

Solid wall insulation keeps older homes warmer for longer. This can transform the look of your property and stop heat loss – it's like wrapping a huge blanket around your home.

Loft insulation is easy to install and stops heat from escaping through your roof.
