5 Benefits of Loft Insulation
Whether you’re taking on the project yourself or you’d rather leave it to your local insulation installer to take care of the whole project. There’s no denying the many benefits that fully insulating your loft can provide you. Multifoil loft insulation is a versatile insulation product that can be used under the rafter, over the rafter, and on the loft floor. It’s easy to install, and a cost-effective way to improve your home’s energy efficiency. This is why we’ve put together a list of our top 5 benefits of proper loft insulation for your home.
How Does Loft Insulation Work?
Loft insulation is basically like a woolly hat for your home, keeping the warm air in so you use less energy to maintain a comfortable temperature within your home. Several different types of insulation can be used within a loft. An increasingly popular type of loft insulation is Multifoil Insulation. This is supplied in rolls that can be rolled out onto the floor or underneath the rafters. Once it’s rolled out it’s just simply stapled into place. Ensure there is an air cavity on both sides of the insulation for maximum thermal performance.
Top 5 Benefits of Proper Loft Insulation for Your Home
Save on energy bills
Loft insulation can save you 100s of pounds on your energy bills. With Multifoil Insulation having a long life span it will pay for itself over time. By preventing heat loss during the winter as well as heat gain during the summer, loft insulation contributes to lower energy consumption. Homeowners will often experience significantly lower energy bills as well as a more comfortable ambient temperature all year round.
Preventing heat loss
Around 25% of a home’s heat is lost through its roof if there’s no insulation in place. The aim of insulating your loft is to minimise the heat lost by creating a thermal barrier, preventing heat from rising and escaping through the roof. Loft insulation helps maintain a consistent temperature and also reduces temperature fluctuations. This makes your home more comfortable throughout the year. By installing Multifoil Loft Insulation you can expect a reduction in heat loss of around 25%. Multifoil insulation not only enhances comfort but also reduces draughts and cold spots in your living space.
Generally home insulation can provide some relief from noise pollution and reduce the amount of noise entering your home. Once your loft is fully insulated you’ll notice a difference in how much outside noise you can hear inside your home.
More environmentally friendly
Reducing your energy consumption often reduces your carbon dioxide emissions. In short, your home’s carbon footprint will be greatly reduced, making your home much more environmentally friendly. Due to your home being more protected from the outside temperature you’ll be less reliant on heating and cooling systems, leading to lower energy bills and overall increased energy efficiency.
Increase the value of your home
A massive benefit from properly insulating your loft is a higher rating for your home’s Energy Performance Certificate. Having a higher rating will improve your home’s value and sale price when it comes to selling your home. Home buyers are increasingly interested in the Energy Performance Certificate of a house it will make your house more attractive to potential buyers. Investing in loft insulation can make your home more attractive to potential buyers, potentially increasing its resale value.
