With the recent announcement from the Energy Companies that fuel bills are set to soar, there has never been a better time to invest in insulation. Although most properties have loft insulation, the majority have only 100mm or less and require topping up to the present day standard of 270mm, which is the requirement for new homes.
The benefit of improving loft insulation includes saving in heating bills and making your property more comfortable.
As much as 25% of all the heat is lost from the average house via the roof space. By bring your loft insulation up to modern standards, savings of between 25%-35% can be achieved. By correctly insulating your home you could prevent the emission of around 135 tonnes or more of CO2 pollution during your lifetime.
Typically the payback period to recover the install cost from savings in your annual fuel bill would be between 2-12years depending on the property type and the level of insulation required to be installed.
Example install cost on loft top-up of 170mm:
Semi-bungalow (2 bed) £200.00
Detached-bungalow (2 bed) £400.00
Mid-Terrace (3 bed) £200.00
Semi-House (3 bed) £225.00
Detached-House (4 bed) £425.00
The above costs are guide prices only and are based on typical property size per property type and will always be subject to survey. Our surveys are carried out without obligation and are free of charge. The survey is important to check property suitability and measurement. The installation of loft insulation will include the draught proofing to loft hatches, where possible and practical. The installation of new pipe lagging and cold water jackets are subject to additional pricing.
