Help reduce your energy bills by up to £140 a year[1]

Your loft can be one of the major sources of heat loss in your home. In a loft with no insulation, up to a quarter of the heat is lost through the roof. With all that heat escaping, you may be spending more money than you need to keep your home warm. By insulating your loft, you should see a reduction in your heating bills and also notice a difference in the temperature of your home as it will be warmer in winter and cooler in summer.

Even if you already have loft insulation, you might not have enough to effectively stop heat loss. Many homes have less than the recommended thickness, so it’s a good idea to check if you need to ‘top up’ to a depth of 270mm.

Loft insulation acts like a blanket to stop heat escaping through your roof. It’s made from non-combustible mineral fibre that is simply rolled on to the loft floor between the joists. It’s easy to install and will be delivered into your loft in plastic packaging.

Loft insulation is one of the easiest ways to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your heating bills. In fact, you could save around £140 per year.[1]

Your installation journey

  • Prior to the visit, you’ll receive a call from the engineer to confirm the exact time of the installation.
  • All our engineers carry identification, so please feel free to ask to see it. The engineer will walk you through the process of the installation so that you know what to expect.
  • The insulation material will be in sealed bags, which will be carried into your loft and opened within the loft space.
  • The insulation will be laid between and across the joists and the loft hatch will be insulated, where possible.
  • A small amount of dust may fall from the loft hatch, but this will be cleared and all packaging removed from your home and recycled by the engineer.
