Attic Insulation

Save on heating bills with Attic insulation

It’s never been more important to think about insulating your attic. Without proper insulation a lot of the valuable, expensive fuel you use to heat your home will be lost through the attic. The recommended depth for attic insulation is at least 8 to 12 inches.

In an uninsulated home 35% of your heat is lost through the roof. By getting Attic Insulation installed, you can reduce your heating bills dramatically. Attic and loft insulation acts as a blanket trapping rising heat in your house and keeping it worm for longer saving you money on your fuel bills.

Depending on the needs of the customer, we use different insulation systems.

Fiberglass insulation is a sort of insulation which is more commonly used in Ireland and acts as a blanket to preserve warm climate in winter and cool in sunny season. Moy Isover, Kanuf, Rock Wool, Natural Wool, Polyester insulation are some of the fiberglass insulations which we used.

Reflective Attic insulation (Reflective Foil Insulation and foil bubble insulation) is widely seen in aluminum foil material which has been specially designed to resist & block heat in open spaces. Reflective foil insulation is popularly used to keep the house and other building cool in a sunny day or in hot climate.

Why Insulate your Attic or Loft?

Loft insulation is an effective way to save energy and money at home. A well insulated house keeps warmth exactly where you need it – indoors.

So, insulating your attic – or topping up any insulation you have already – will help to heat your home more efficiently. Using less energy reduces carbon dioxide emissions (CO2): one of the biggest causes of climate change. You will save money on your home

How does Attic Insulation work?

Heat will always flow from a warm area to a cold one. The colder it is outside, the faster heat from your home will escape into the surrounding air.

Increasing the Insulation in your attic or loft makes it much more difficult for heat to pass up through your roof by providing a layer of material which has lots of air pockets in it. These pockets trap heat, cutting what is known as the U value of the attic.

The U value measures how quickly it loses heat so the lower the U value, the less energy you need to keep your home warm. Attic insulation cuts your loft’s U value from around 2.3 (for an un-insulated loft) to 0.16 W/m2K, a reduction of around 95%. You may on occasions also see references to an R-value. An R value is a measure of thermal resistance and is the inverse of a U value so the higher the R value the better.

What could you save?

At best guess estimate would say that if you had no attic insulation prior to our arrival and we installed the recommended covering of at least 8 to 12 inches, that you could dramically reduce your heat loss through the attic and could save perhaps 30-35% on heating bills with a payback of 2-3 years on the installation price.

Attic insulation is effective for at least 40 years, and it will pay for itself over and over again in that time. The better insulated your home, the less energy you need to keep it warm – the more money you’ll save in the long run.

By saving energy, your household will produce less CO2. So, adding or topping up your loft insulation is a great way to do your bit – and reduce your impact on the environment.
