What Are The Key Areas of Homes That Need Insulation?
The key areas of your home that need insulation are the attic, roof and exterior walls. Additionally, up to 10% of heat can be lost through the floor of a home with no underfloor insulation. Attic or roof insulation can save you the most in energy bills and is a key area to insulate. Regulations were introduced in 2006 that insisted all homes have roof insulation of a specific depth depending on the material. Lastly, up to 20% of a home’s heat can be lost through poor and inadequate ceiling insulation.
How can I prevent heat-loss with roof insulation?
Replacing faulty, damaged or poorly installed roof insulation is the best way to prevent heat loss. As the attic is a key area of your house that needs insulation, choosing the most effective insulation naturally leads to the best savings. Mass Foam Systems can provide Icynene® spray foam roof insulation, one of the most eco-friendly and best heat-loss prevention roof insulations available.
Which area of the home should I insulate to maximise heating savings?
Insulating cavity walls is likely the most cost effective when analysing money spent vs heat loss avoided. It is cheaper than installing double glazing, which is the UK’s most popular energy saving measure. Cavity walls are common in buildings built after the 1950s and similar to double glazing, where two walls are used with nothing but air in between them. Filling the cavity wall with insulation can lead to huge energy saving benefits.
