Home Insulation Options for 2018

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Welcome! On this page you are going to find all of our suggestions regarding the best home insulation options for 2018, looking at where in your home you can get the most benefit and why.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Roof and Loft Insulation

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The roof and loft are the first places you should look to insulate, simply for the fact that heat rises.

Best Home Insulation Options

When all the windows and doors closed, it is the roof that heat seeks to escape from. So to prevent this, and in turn, reduce your heating bills, consider loft insulation such as basf foam insulation. The same theory applies to attics and flat roofs.

Cavity Wall Insulation

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Modern homes created in different styles, with different materials. Which means the architecture may affect what type of cavity wall insulation is best for you.

In an un-insulated home, about a third of heat loss is through cavity walls. Which makes them the second most important area on our home insulation options for 2018 list.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Solid Wall Insulation

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Did you know that solid walls let twice as much heat energy escape as cavity walls? Being prepared and addressing this situation will allow you to reduce your energy bills, though it’s only an issue for homes with solid walls, which are commonly a feature of homes built before the 1920s.

Solid wall insulation will cost more than cavity wall insulation, but is also saves a lot more money and improves heat retention.

Draught-proofing

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]If you like cost-effective ways of being more energy efficient, look no further than draught-proofing. This solution is great for homes, offices, warehouses, sheds, garages- in fact, any type of building where small pockets of air can enter and exit freely.

Draught-proofing strips can purchased very inexpensively from DIY shops, and should be fitted around windows, doors (including keyholes and letterboxes), pipework that leads outside and in many other places.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Insulation for Tanks, Pipes and Radiators

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Jackets for tanks cost around £15, and can pay back this cost through energy savings in around three months. Putting reflector panels behind a radiator is an inexpensive job too, as is putting foam tubing on exposed pipes. Save yourself over £100 per year by doing these three activities!

Floor Insulation

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Since heat rises, we forget to look down at the problem beneath our feet, but there’s a huge opportunity in thermal efficiency to be had by insulating under the floorboards and between the floor and skirting boards on the ground floor.

We estimate that around £40 per year could saved by doing this. Seal the gaps and block the draughts to reduce your bills! You can do this yourself with some sealant from your local DIY shop.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Conclusion

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Our home insulation options for 2018 guide is just an introduction to some of the techniques you can use to make your home more energy efficient through insulation. In effect, the idea is to stop warm air escaping and cold air entering, by making the walls, floors and roof into a protective barrier. Usually, we recommend spray foam for these kinds of activities.
