Loft and Wall Insulation

Keep The Cold Out - And Your Money In Your Pocket

Loft insulation can help your home reduce heat loss, retain warmth during winter and may help to reduce your energy bills.

Below, we answer some questions you may have - and point you in the right direction so you can keep your family warm during winter.

How is insulation installed?

Loft insulation is usually laid on the floor of the loft. It's normally installed by starting at the edge of the loft and working back towards the loft hatch. A gap is left around the edge of the loft for ventilation. It doesn't take long either.

What material is used for insulation?

The most common type of loft insulation is mineral fibre, which comes in rolls that are laid out at the floor level of the loft between the joists. Cavity wall insulation is injected between walls and comes in the form of polyurethane foam or polystyrene beads.

Alternative insulation includes rigid boards and foam panels that fit between joists. Your installer will advise you on the insulation material they will be using, which will change with what type of insulation you receive.

What if I store items in my loft or my loft is boarded?

If you already have items stored in your loft, you'll need to remove these before having your insulation fitted, as the installers will need to be able to easily access all areas of the loft space being insulated.

Please note that neither the Warmer Homes programme or the installer can assist with loft clearance. If your loft space is boarded on the floor, your installer will speak to you about any actions required so that they can access the space underneath in order to fit the insulation.
