Why Is Loft Insulation Needed?

WHY IS LOFT INSULATION NEEDED?



AT LEAST 30% OF ALL END USE GREEN HOUSE GAS EMISSIONS ARE FROM THE UK RESIDENTIAL SECTOR.



25% OF HEAT IN HOMES IS LOST THROUGH THE ROOF/LOFT SPACE.



IF EVERYONE IN THE UK INSTALLED 270MM OF LOFT INSULATION, WE COULD SAVE AROUND 520 MILLION POUNDS AND NEARLY THREE MILLION TONNES OF C02 EVERY YEAR. THAT'S ENOUGH TO FILL WEMBLEY STADIUM 380 TIMES



BENEFITS OF LOFT INSULATION

REDUCES CARBON EMISSIONS - INSULATION REDUCES THE AMOUNT OF WASTER ENERGY IN YOUR HOME. ESSENTIALLY POOR OR NO INSULATION RESULTS IN HEAT LOSS WHICH ESCAPES IN TO THE ATMOSPHERE.



LOWER ENERGY COSTS - THE ENERGY SAVING TRUST RATES HOME INSULATION AS ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAYS TO REDUCE YOUR ENERGY COSTS. THE LOW COST OF INSTALLATION MEANS THAT THE SAVINGS OVER TIME CAN BE SIGNIFICANT.



PREVENTS CONDENSATION BUILD-UP - CONDENSATION CAN BE A HUGE PROBLEM WITHIN SOME HOMES AND HOME INSULATION CAN BE USED TO RESOLVE THE PROBLEM. THIS IS BECAUSE IT HELPS CONTROL AIRFLOW AND STOPS THE BUILD-UP OF MOISTURE IN THE AIR.



IMPROVED HOME COMFORT - INSULATION IS PARTICULARLY EFFECTIVE AT IMPROVING YOUR HOMES ROOM TEMPERATURES. INSULATION SUCH AS SPRAY FOAM CAN PROVIDE WARM CONDITIONS IN THE WINTER AND COOL CONDITIONS IN THE SUMMER. THIS IS DONE THROUGH CONTROLLING YOUR HOMES AIRFLOW.
