Loft Insulation

You could be eligible for FREE Loft Insulation*

Insulating your loft should be one of the first energy-saving measures you should consider. It’s a quick and easy method of keeping your home warm.

As much as a third of the heat in your home is lost through your loft and roof but you could save up to 20% of the heated air in your home by installing efficient loft insulation for free.

These days, building regulations require loft insulation to be around 10-12 inches thick.  If your home was built before 1982 and has not subsequently received an insulation top-up, then you should consider enquiring if you’re eligible for FREE loft insulation.

*Grant Funding may be available for the works and the amount of grant and the cost of the works will vary depending on how much CO2 is saved by installing the upgrade.

What are the benefits of loft insulation?

  • Savings on your energy bills
  • Warmer home in the winter, cooler in the summer
  • Improved living conditions which are vital to health and wellbeing
  • Helps to reduce your carbon footprint.

Can you save money on your energy bills with loft insulation?

Absolutely.  A quarter of heat is lost through the roof in an uninsulated home.  According to the Energy Saving Trust (EST), you could save up to £150 a year on your energy bills (estimates based on insulating a gas-heated home with a totally uninsulated loft).

Are grants available for loft insulation?

Yes, there are.  If you or a member of your household is on a qualifying benefit, you may qualify for free loft insulation through the government Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme.  Check out our grants and funding page for further details.

Do you need more information?

Frequently asked questions.

What is the recommend depth of loft insulation?

The minimum recommended depth of loft insulation is 270mm.

I already have some loft insulation; can it be topped up?

Absolutely.  Any existing insulation can be left in the loft and additional insulation added to top it up, ensuring it is at the recommended depth of 270mm.  Loft insulation is installed between the joists on the loft floor (if your property is a virgin loft with no insulation) and laid on top if you have existing insulation.

I use my loft for storage, but would like it insulated, is this possible?

This would require further assessment by one of our retrofit surveyors.

How long does it take to install?

Depending on the size of your property, on average our installers would take around one hour to install your loft insulation.

What products do you install?

We work with various system manufacturers and we install various thicknesses of insulation, including 100mm, 150mm and 200mm.

I have down lights in my rooms, what do you do to safeguard these?

Our installers will check the lights and if required will install downlight covers.

I have pipework coming from my tanks, would you insulate these?

Yes.  If uninsulated our installers will insulate all pipework and tanks.

What COVID secure measures do you have in place?

All our installers, surveyors and supervisors follow the latest government guidance, to always keep our customers and themselves safe.

I have a wooden loft hatch; would you insulate this?

Yes.  Insulate would be added to the back of the loft hatch, in line with the depth of loft insulation fitted.  Loft hatches will also be draft proofed, in accordance with the insulation material specification.

Are your installers employed by you?

Yes.  Our professional employed teams are trained to the highest standards.
