The benefits of attic insultation
Reduce your home's heating bills
Up to 35% of heat loss in a home occurs through a poorly insulated attic. Attic Insulation will reduce heat loss and in turn your heating bills.
Improve your home's BER
Reducing your homes energy loss & consumption will result in a higher BER, which in turn can result in a higher energy effiiciency rating improving your homes market value.
Prevent pipes and water tanks from freezing
From spray foam to loose-fill fiberglass, the materials used to insulate attics can prevent all pipes and water tanks from freezing.
Attic insulation is generally the most cost effective of any energy efficiency upgrade made to a house, considering the potential cost savings that can be achieved on the monthly heating bills. Even if you have some attic insulation, you should upgrade it it to today's standard of 300mm of rockwool or equivalent.
The optimum solution for your specific case should be discussed with the Contractor.
