Without proper insulation a lot of the valuable, expensive energy you use to heat your home will be lost through the loft. The government have recently changed legislation to insure home owners increase insulation when carrying out re-roofing work.
The recommended depth for mineral wool insulation is 270mm however there are other materials such as high density insulation boards that can be fitted between the rafters creating a warm roof so your loft space is not inundated with itchy fibreglass material.
Did you know?
If everyone in the UK installed 270mm loft insulation, over £500 million could be saved and nearly three million tonnes less of CO2 emissions into our atmosphere. That’s enough to fill Wembley Stadium nearly 380 times.
Is loft insulation for you?
Generally speaking, your home will be a perfect candidate for loft insulation if it has an accessible loft with no damp or condensation problems.
If you do have condensation or damp problems in your roof Ballman Roofing can overcome this for you by installing cross ventilation systems to eliminate air moisture condensation issues.
What could you save?
Loft insulation is effective for at least 40 years, and it will pay for itself over and over again in that time. The insulation will begin to pay for itself in as little as 12 month and can save ££s every year then on.
If you have a loft space you need or would like to use call one of our team for a loft insulation and boarding quote and between the rafter insulation sheets to create valuable storage space and keep your heat in at the same time.
What are the benefits?
Loft insulation is an effective way to save energy and money at home. A well-insulated house takes very little energy to heat and once warm you home will stay warm for much longer. It also helps the environment by using less fuel thus reducing emissions.
So, insulating your loft – or topping up any insulation you have already – will help to heat your home more efficiently, use less energy, reduce carbon dioxide emissions (CO2 which one of the biggest causes of climate change) and save you money on your bills too. It really is a no brainier.
