Loft Insulation

How can loft insulation cut your heating bills?

In an uninsulated home, a quarter of the heat energy escapes through the roof. Loft insulation is a simple way for you to help home-owners cut their heating bills and stay warm all winter. Since loft insulation lasts at least 40 years, their investment in your time, skills, and materials should pay for itself many times over. To comply with current building regulations a minimum of 300mm insulation should be installed for new-build, 270mm for domestic retrofit.
