Efficient loft insulation can play a vital part in lowering the energy use within
the home, and in turn help keep your bill prices down. PH Roofing can help ensure
your roof and loft are fully insulated to prevent heat loss.
Having adequate loft insulation is vital for home energy efficiency. Modern building
standards require 270mm (10.5 inches) of insulation in the roof space. Existing insulation
is usually topped up to this depth.
Both of these forms of insulation will pay for themselves in just a few years. Better
still, some home owners are able to benefit from home insulation grants.
How Loft Insulation Works
Insulation acts as a blanket, trapping any heat which is rising from the house below.
The insulation itself is simply laid over the floor of the loft, as well as between
and over the roof joists.
If you currently have no insulation in your loft at all, having it installed could
save you around £100 per year on your heating bills, not to mention lowering your
yearly Carbon Dioxide (C02) emissions by around 1 tonne!
