Loft Insulation Gloucester
Loft insulation is the process of insulating your loft above your home or property to maintain the indoor temperatures and better regulate how much energy you're using to heat your home. In the winter especially, loft insulation can be beneficial to retain the heat in your home and lower your energy bills. At Property Maintenance Gloucester we can help you with all of your loft insulation needs. From the first question you ask, through to the end of the project, we include and inform you all the way.
There are several benefits to loft insulation, the most popular ones being that it can save you money, and the planet’s resources.
A quarter of the heat in an uninsulated home will be going straight through the roof, quite literally. By insulating you’re increasing efficiency and retaining the available heat within the property. Meaning that your radiators will have to work a lot less to maintain the level of heat you need inside the property during colder months. This then has a knock on effect on your bills and saves you enough money for the insulation to pay for its self within a couple of years. While some insulation projects can be more expensive upfront, the balance due will even itself out over continued use and actually save you money the longer you have your loft insulated.
Reducing the amount of energy used to heat your home can reduce your carbon emissions by up to one ton every year, depending on the size and type of your property, and how much insulation is already present. The recommended amount of insulation is 270mm thickness. This is great news as insulation is easy and relatively cheap to install. Making it a win-win situation in saving money and the planet.
Increasing The Energy-Efficiency Rating Of Your Home
This is a benefit of insulating that a lot of people don’t think of. If you don’t have the recommended amount of insulation in your loft, increasing it will increase your energy rating too. This is great news for when you decide to sell or for if you decide to rent the property out as you will need to have and provide prospective buyers/tenants with an energy performance certificate (EPC). The better the rating the more likely they are to buy or rent your property.
Changing The Use Of The Space
Careful consideration of how you want to use the space is important. If you just want to use it as storage, insulating the loft floor, between the rafters, is the easier and cheapest option. This means the loft space will be cold as the heat is kept inside the house. If you want to use the space as a room the roof will have to be insulated so the loft space is now kept warm as part of the house and you are then able to convert it.
