11 Jan Insulating your Roof
One of the most important parts of the efficiency in your home is the loft. Heat rises, so if your loft is not well insulated, the roof is going to be a big cause of energy loss in your home, making your energy bills higher as the heat escapes. As well as being beneficial in this way during the winter, it can also stop your home from getting too warm in the summer, so the benefits of a well-insulated loft can be felt all year round.
Another bonus reason to ensure that your loft is well insulated is also the fact that it can reduce any noise that you might get from the roof.
The main way to get a loft properly insulated is by using insulation material. It is always better to get a professional in to do this for you, as it can cause problems if you don’t know what you are doing. This is of course only one part of it, you also want to make sure that other parts of the roof are well insulated. For example, downlights should be the correct type of light and should be fitted with downlight covers, which can be purchased to fit the lights from a specialist company like Thermahood Direct.
Although insulating a loft can feel like a huge job to undertake, it is a good idea to get it done sooner rather than later, as this will really help your home to be more energy efficient.
