Insulation Solutions

Protecting the energy that you pay to generate should be the number one priority when making your home more energy efficient. With heat known to rise and escape through any passively ventilated penetrations, it's important to assess whether your loft, walls and floor are up to the task of retaining heat within your home.....and retaining more money in your bank account!

Pitched Roof Insulation

The roof is one of the first entry points for cold air to enter the property. Open eaves and an uninsulated roof surface can also become a focal point for heat loss, even if you have insulation on the loft floor. Insulating at pitched roof level will offer year round ambience within the property – reducing solar gain in the summer, keeping heat within and cold air at bay during the winter. With the insulation installed between the roof rafters, you should notice significant ambience and comfort.

Loft Insulation

Many loft spaces have a layer of fibre insulation on the floor. Current regulations suggest around 270mm to 300mm of fibre insulation to meet thermal targets and retain heat within the home. Whilst pitched roof insulation probably remains one of the most important elements to consider, good insulation on the loft floor will undoubtedly help to slow heat loss and retain more heat within the main living areas. We can install a wide range of insulation solutions into loft/roof spaces including fibre, PIR, spray foam and foil-based products.

Cavity Wall Insulation

With many UK homes built with a ventilation cavity between the inner and outer skin of the property, this can be an area of significant heat loss. We recommend two forms of insulation for cavity walls – closed cell polyurethane injection foam is by far the most thermally efficient per inch and can add structural integrity whilst resin bonded beads are a much cheaper alternative but with approximately 30% less thermal performance.

Underfloor Insulation

Many floors in UK properties are suspended off the ground with a crawlspace underneath. In some circumstances, these can be sizeable voids that allow easy access to apply insulation to the underside of the floor boards between joists. Ground floor voids can be particular problematic in winter months with cold draughts rising into the living areas. We recommend spray-applied Polyurethane insulation due to the strong adhesion to the underside of floor boards and the fact it will stand the test of gravitational pull.
