Why Insulate?


So whats so important about insulating a property?

Since every building element is a potential source of heat loss, the industry has developed insulation materials and products that cater for every aspect of construction from roof to floor. In the battle to halt climate change, the construction industry is on the front line.

The government has set its zero carbon for new homes targets and outlined the increasingly stringent standards it expects in approved documents that support the technical “Parts” of the Building Regulations. Meeting the challenges of Parts L (Conservation of Fuel and Power), E (Resistance to Sound) and B (Fire Safety) isn’t easy, but the benefits are far-reaching. By constructing energy-efficient buildings and installing industry leading brands of insulation in to roofs, wall and floors, our industry will reduce the significant amounts of heat lost, saving millions of tons of carbon whilst creating more comfortable and safe building environments.


So what savings can be made from ensuring your insulation is adequate?
