Roof and loft insulation

Did you know that in an uninsulated home, a quarter of heat is lost through the roof? Insulating your loft, attic or flat roof is a simple and effective way to reduce heat loss and reduce your heating bills.​

Loft insulation is effective for at least 42 years and it should pay for itself many times over. Insulation is very clever, not only does it make your home warmer in winter, it also helps keep it cooler in summer. Air is a poor conductor of heat, so the tiny pockets of air trapped in insulation minimise the amount of heat which can pass between the inside and outside of your house.

If you decide to install your own loft insulation, look out for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo to ensure you are buying insulation products that have been through a quality-control process and comply with building regulations.
