Is underfloor insulation required?
Underfloor insulation is not one of the first areas of the home that people consider insulating, but around 10% of heat is lost through the floor if it isn’t insulated, which is a considerable amount. Older houses with suspended wooden floors should consider underfloor insulation to stop the large amount of heat that is lost through the space under the floorboards.
What are the benefits of underfloor insulation?
Having underfloor insulation will reduce the amount of heating you need, as the rooms will remain sufficiently heated for longer, saving you money on your heating bills. We recommended Icynene® spray foam insulation under floor as it not only has the highest water-resistance compared to other forms of insulation, but it will prevent air-draughts.
