There are a range of different ways to better insulate your home.  

Depending on how you want your home insulated, there are different types of insulation available to do the job. Please see the information boxes, below, for more detail on the different materials available.

 

Cavitywall Small Graphic  Cavity wall insulation

Some homes have walls with a hollow space in the middle.

Putting insulation in this space is quick and makes no mess because the work can be done from outside the home.

 

Loft Insulation       Loft insulation

Heat rises and it might be leaking into your loft. Insulating your loft, or topping up your existing insulation, will keep heat inside your living spaces for longer.

 

Loft Insulation (1)     Floor insulation

Heat is easily lost through your floorboards, especially if there is a empty space below. Adding insulation under flooring and using a sealant to fill spaces where the floor meets skirting boards can be really effective. 

 

Roof       Roof Insulation

We will always encourage you to sort out loft insulation as a priority. However, modern materials mean rafters can also be insulated, whether for pitched or flat roofs. It is effective for at least 40 years and could result in savings of up to £175 each year. 

 

External WallExternal or internal solid wall insulation

Older homes usually have solid walls. Installing insulation on the inside or outside of the wall can dramatically reduce the heat that escapes your home.

 

 

Types of insulation material
Glass wool

Glass wool insulation is made from fibreglass, but looks a lot like wool. Fibres trap air to reduce heat loss. Glass wool comes in rolls and is commonly used for cavity wall insulation, loft insulation and to insulate pipes.

Rock mineral wool

Rock mineral wool is an excellent heat insulator, made from heating molten rock to extreme temperatures and then spinning it into wool. Available in rolls for use in cavity wall insulation and loft insulation.

Sheep’s wool

Sheep’s wool insulation is a high performance, natural and environmentally friendly type of insulation. It is ideal for use in loft insulation, and also works extremely well both under and between floors.

Other insulation

Injected foam insulation - is used for cavity walls. It is injected into the empty spaces in walls through holes that are then filled. Easy, quick and cost-effective. Rigid foam insulation - These boards or panels made of foam are highly versatile and can insulate your home anywhere from floor to roof.
