Green savings through the roof.
There’s an old wives’ tale that on cold winter days, your body loses 25% of its heat through your head.
It’s not really true – the human body doesn’t work that way.
However, your home does. Few improvements can have a more significant impact on your heating bill than insulating the loft. According to the National Insulation Association, this one area of the home is responsible for 25% of all the heat loss in your house.
Think about that for a second. By not insulating your loft, your heating bill is 25% higher than it needs to be. That percentage may be a little lower if you already have older insulation installed. But, you’re still wasting money and energy every day and every month.
“No problem,” you say. “I live in a warmer part of the UK.”
Not so fast. Controlled heat loss doesn’t just affect your heating bill – it also hurts your cooling as well, making your home hotter than it needs to be on those hot summer days, that seem to be more frequent these days..
The good news is that loft insulation is a cost-effective investment that pays for itself very quickly. A standard installation job costs less than £400, but it can deliver annual savings of up to £250. This means that the payback period is less than two years. And your savings will only rise as heating and cooling prices increase.
Other benefits of loft insulation
Saving money month after month is a terrific feeling, and this is the main reason why most homeowners invest in our loft insulation services.
But there are other benefits as well:
- Your boiler won’t have to work as hard to heat your home. Any your fans or cooling units you have won’t have to run so much during hot summer spells. By reducing unnecessary wear and tear, you can add years to your heating and cooling systems
- Loft insulation also delivers substantial environmental savings. Average annual carbon offsets range between 500 kg to 1,000 kg of CO2
- And don’t forget that you’ll feel more comfortable in your own home. Set the indoor temperature to whatever you want – without breaking the bank
