Why Insulate Your Attic?
With over 30% of heat loss through your attic and huge savings to be made this is the ideal starting point when upgrading your homes insulation. There are many different methods and products available for insulating your attic so you’re always best to seek professional experienced advice when choosing a product.
There are some key guidelines which you should always follow,
- Always ensure to maintain adequate ventilation to allow the roof timbers to breathe and prevent dry rot and condensation.
- Always ensure to provide adequate protection over any existing spot lights rather than not covering them and loosing valuable heat.
- Always ensure to insulate all pipe work and tanks and with the correct type of insulation as your attic will become much colder when insulated.
- Always ensure that your attic hatch is properly insulated, there’s no point insulating your entire attic if all the heat is escaping through the hatch.
These points are very simple. However they are not always considered so you are always best to see experienced and qualified advice when selecting a contractor.
