Why should I get my loft insulated?
Reduce heat loss
Heat rises, so insulating your house properly means you keep more heat inside the house.
You'll keep more heat inside your home with roof insulation – reducing the amount of energy you use and your bill.
Quick to install
Loft or attic insulation is easy to install and causes minimal disruption to your home.
It's maintenance-free once installed.
How does loft insulation work?
Installing loft insulation is as simple as unrolling a rug. A mineral fibre material is laid between the joists and then over the joists in your loft or roof. This thick material captures heat normally lost through the roof and stops draughts getting in.
If you already have loft insulation, you could still benefit from a top-up. If your insulation is 100mm or less, you can increase it to the recommended level of 270mm.
Is my home suitable for loft insulation?
Loft insulation is suitable for your home if:
- It hasn't been installed already
- You have access to your loft space
- Your current insulation has a thickness of 100mm or less – you can easily check this with a ruler or tape measure
- You haven't had insulation removed in the last 6 month
