What kind of floor do you have?
We can insulate suspended floors, these are usually wooden floors with a space underneath them.
We require someone to get underneath the floor to carry out the work, so enough space must be present to have this measure installed.
Most homes with a suspended floor will have an access hatch somewhere, this may be inaccessible due to flooring or other work carried out on your property; in this case we can create a small hatch - usually in a cupboard out the way.
Having the floor insulated stops any draughts from coming up from the floor and also helps to keep your heat in increasing your overall energy efficiency. This will save you money on your heating bills, and as we all know will help reduce your carbon footprint.
Underfloor insulation is a type of insulation that is installed underneath the floor of a building. It works by preventing heat from escaping through the floor and into the ground, thus helping to keep the interior of the building warm and energy efficient. Here are some of the benefits of underfloor insulation:
Increased Energy Efficiency: By preventing heat from escaping through the floor, underfloor insulation helps to reduce the amount of energy required to maintain a comfortable temperature in the building. This can lead to significant reductions in energy bills, especially during the winter months.
Improved Comfort: Underfloor insulation helps to regulate the temperature in a building, making it more comfortable to live in. This is because the insulation helps to prevent heat from escaping, thus keeping the interior of the building warm and cozy.
Improved Indoor Air Quality: Underfloor insulation helps to prevent the buildup of moisture and mold, which can cause health problems and damage the structure of the building. By preventing these problems, underfloor insulation can help to improve the indoor air quality of a building.
Increased Home Value: Installing underfloor insulation can increase the value of a building. This is because energy-efficient buildings are seen as more desirable by potential buyers, and underfloor insulation is a cost-effective way to improve the energy efficiency of a building.
The installation process for underfloor insulation is relatively straightforward, and can be carried out by a professional insulation installer. The process typically involves removing the floorboards, laying the insulation, and then replacing the floorboards. The type of insulation used will depend on the type of flooring and the specific requirements of the building.
