Insulation

Here at The Loft Men we understand the importance of loft insulation and offer great rates per square metre to get your loft compliant with the recommended levels set by government. Insulation can be fitted at the most efficient level of 270mm, whilst ensuring that the floor space can still be used for storage using our raised flooring (see ‘Loft flooring’ section for details). Savings of up to £250.00 per year can be achieved by installing loft insulation.

Loft insulation is a quick and relatively cheap way for you to improve the energy efficiency of your home. Not only will it lead to a reduction in your energy bills but it will also help to prolong the life of your boiler by creating a consistent, more comfortable living environment in your home. It will also improve the energy rating of your home.
Loft insulation works by creating a barrier to the hot air which rises from the lower levels of your home towards the roof. As this hot air rises it easily escapes through your roof unless you place something in its way. The air pockets in insulation trap that hot air and prevent it from being lost into the atmosphere.

It is recommended that 270mm of loft insulation is used in the loft of all homes. At this level, the least amount of heat will be lost. The modern insulation used by The Loft Men is made from recycled mineral wool material, and unlike some old types of insulation is non-itchy and completely free of any hazardous material. The recommended 270mm is made up of a bottom layer of 100mm insulation which is fitted between your joists, followed by a top layer of 170mm insulation which is then laid running the opposite way to ensure that full coverage is achieved, keeping gaps to a minimum.
