The Ideal Way To Insulate Your Home
Double Glazing and Triple Glazing.
Double and tripled glazing can both help to reduce heat loss from your home. Helping you to save money on energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint. Double glazing installed with A+ rated glass units will help to reduce noise and heat loss. Furthermore, if you live somewhere colder then triple glazing may be a more suitable option. Triple glazing is slightly better at heat loss than double glazing and also helps reduce noise greatly.
Replacing your old timber or uPVC door with a composite door can also help to reduce heat loss. Save money on energy bills by having a thermal efficient composite door installed onto your home. There are other benefits from composite doors such as being more secure, a wide range of colours and designs to choose from and transforming the look of your home.
A loft that is badly insulated could be losing you the homeowner anything up to 25% of the heat from your house. Installing brand new loft insulation with 270mm thick laid over the loft floor can help to save up to £145 pounds a year on energy bills. Furthermore, loft insulation will reduce your carbon footprint and help to reduce heat escaping from your roof.
Pipe and Tank Insulation
Installing or fitting a thermal jacket of at least 75mm over your hot water tank and piping can help to cut heat loss by up to 75%. A thermal jacket will also help to keep the hot water stored in the tank warmer for a much longer period of time. It is also worth spending the extra money and insulating all the hot water piping. This will further decrease heat loss and help you as a homeowner save money on your energy bills.
Cavity Wall Insulation
One of the main causes of heat loss and not really thought about is the walls. Cavity wall insulation can help by filling out all the gaps between the two walls with an insulating material. Cavity wall insulation can help cut heating bills by up to 15%. Furthermore, solid walls can be insulated too, on the outside and the inside.
Save anywhere up to 15% on heat loss by insulating the floor of your home. You can use wool insulation under wooden flooring and even carpet to help insulate the house. Insulating under the flooring will not only help save you money on energy bills but your floor will also be warm all year round. No more cold feet.
