The standard for loft insulation is always improving. A lot of people may find that their loft insulation is now lacking. If you have under 100mm of insulation in your home, it'd be recommended to get it increased to 270mm.
Why have Loft Insulation installed?
What is Loft Insulation?
Loft insulation is put into the top of the home to stop heat from escaping through the roof of the home.
The insulation that we use is high-grade earthwool, which is rolled out along the cleared floor of a loft.
How does it work?
The earthwool is designed to stop heat from rising into the roof of the property, thus trapping it in the room below, keeping heating in.
As long as sufficient ventilation is installed in the home, this will not cause issues and will reduce your heating bill.
