Loft Insulation

If your loft is not insulated did you know that a quarter of your heat is lost through the roof.

If your loft is not insulated did you know that a quarter of your heat is lost through the roof. Having UK Energy Saving Experts insulate your loft, attic or roof space is a simple way to effectively save the wasted heat loss and reduce your heating bills.

UK Energy Saving Experts install loft insulation up to the recommended thickness of 270mm, the benefits of this thickness being installed are well documented with a possible saving of £250 on your utilities bill. Properties in Preston and all over the UK may already have loft insulation but this is quite possibly only 100mm thick, it is worth checking or calling us to discuss further.

About 35% of all heat loss from UK homes takes place through external walls. Most homes built after 1920 have twin exterior walls with a narrow cavity between them.

If your attic is accessed by a fixed staircase (not a ladder) and you have an attic room or dormer roof then you could benefit from Room in roof insulation. Many attic conversions were constructed with little or no insulation applied to the walls and voids. Loft insulation, Cavity wall and Room in Roof insulation can all be applied for using the same application form.

Cavity Wall Insulation

If your home was built after the 1920s, the chances are that it’s got cavity walls. And unless it was built within the last 20 years, those cavities are probably empty. If so, filling them with wall insulation could be a very cost-effective way to retain heat in your home and save on your energy bills.

Around one third of the heat loss from most homes is through the walls, so cavity insulation could save you up to £160 a year in heating bills.

 

• House stock pre 1920’s – solid wall construction.
• House stock post 1920’s – narrow cavity walls slowly introduced.
• Between 1920’s and 1970’s UK house stock mostly built to include a cavity, with the cavity width slowly increasing.
• 1970’s onwards – possible chance of insulated cavity.
• 1990’s onwards – compulsory cavity insulation as per building regulations.

 

Please feel free to call us at our Preston branch and discuss your requirements, if you are in any doubt regarding your house cavity type we can arrange for a survey to be completed to assess your requirements and discuss possible funding options. Although we are based in Preston our HTT teams work throughout the UK and Scotland completing Hard To Treat cavities nationwide.

Solid Wall Insulation

There have been over a million homes built in the UK with solid walls. Properties with this wall type are not very efficient at keeping heat in. It’s confirmed that a third of the heat in your property escapes through your walls. This is where the ECO scheme can help. If your property has solid walls and you are on a qualifying benefit, then you can have your property insulated with external wall insulation.

Not only will you benefit from making your property warmer, but the look of your home will also be transformed with an external coating.

The process involves securing insulation boards to the outside of your home. This is then covered in a mesh to reinforce the boards and then a base coat is applied.

Once the base coat has dried your home will then have a decorative finish giving it a whole new look and reducing your energy bills.

With the new look, external wall insulation can also add value to your home, make it more soundproof and help protect it from damp.

Installing external wall insulation can be an expensive process, but a high amount of the cost can be covered with funding. Not only homeowners can take advantage of this measure the government has confirmed tenants can have their rented properties insulated.
