Heat rises, and in an uninsulated home a quarter of your heat is lost through the roof. Insulating your loft, attic or flat roof is a simple and effective way to save that waste and reduce your heating bills – you can even do it yourself.
There are a number of different options for the material used for the quilts, including foil-backed felt, glass or mineral fibre. However, if you’d like a greener solution you can also consider sheet-loft insulation materials such as cork, straw and wood board.
Loft insulation is effective for at least 40 years, and it will pay for itself over and over again in that time. If your loft is already insulated, it’s worth checking that you’ve got enough insulation to get the maximum saving. If everyone in the UK installed 270mm loft insulation, we could save nearly £210 million – and almost 1 million tons of carbon dioxide every year, the equivalent of taking nearly 364,000 cars off the road.
