Studies have shown that you could be losing 25% of the heat generated in your house through your loft. By insulating your loft, you can find generous savings of around £240 per year on your heating bill. By utilising installing quality insulation, you can be sure to make your money back within as little as 1-3 years.
It is important for your loft insulation to be durable and of high quality, as it should be a long-term investment to reduce heating costs.
At Mass Foam Systems, we use only the best insulation products and therefore we offer 2 main insulating materials for loft insulation:
- Icynene spray foam
- Knauf 44 Earthwool insulation roll
Insulation grants can help save money on the costs of energy-efficient improvements for your home. Many are not aware that you may be applicable for funding that will help cover the costs for your insulation installation/replacement.
