Benefits of home insulation
In a property which has no insulation or loft / cavity wall insulation below the recommended level, most of the heat escapes through the roof and outer walls. By installing the correct amount of insulation the heat from your central heating system is contained within your house.
This means your heating can be turned down or can be on for less time to reach a comfortable temperature, saving you money on your energy bills.
Installing effective home insulation has the following benefits –
- prevents heat escaping through your roof & walls
- lowers energy bills by reducing the amount of time your heating needs to be switched on
- reducing harmful emissions and improves your carbon footprint
