Loft insulation is not always the first thing you think of when you have a cold house and high energy bills. However, it can make the world of a difference in keeping the house warm and cutting costs on the bills.
According to Energy Saving Trust, it has been found that 25% of heat escapes via attics and lofts that aren’t insulated! Although the prices for loft insulation may seem steep, think about how much money you would save in the long run. Not only does poor loft insulation affect energy bills, but your carbon footprint will be extremely high. Reducing your carbon footprint is essential in this day and age, because we are already seeing the side effects.
To go about installing loft insulation, start with deciding upon which material you wish to use. The materials available include:
- Mineral Insulation
- And many more!
