Help reduce your energy bills by up to £250 a year with free loft insulation.

What is loft insulation?

As we all know, heat rises. Loft insulation acts like a blanket, helping prevent heat escaping through the roof. Insulating your home isn’t a one-off saving; it will keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, helping you to save money on your energy bills year after year.

What are the benefits?

• Save up to £250 a year on your energy bills.
• Quick easy to install, only takes a few hours if there is good access
• Convenient, hassle and mess-free installation
• Helps reduce heat loss.
• Save around 620kg of CO2 every year

Is my home suitable?

• Your house or flat must have loft space
• Your loft must not be fully boarded
• If you are a tenant you will need your landlord’s permission
• If you already have some loft insulation then you may need to have it topped up. If you have less than 3 inches of insulation, get a survey to make sure you are properly insulated
• Any home built since 1991, may not need loft insulation – but check it case it has been removed

If you’re not sure, why not contact Greencom and we’ll find out for you.

Is it a big job?

• Loft insulation is a job that can be done in around two hours
• Loft insulation is made from mineral wool and rolled out between and on top of the ceiling joists
• The ideal thickness of this insulation should be around 270mm
• By trapping the rising heat inside your home, it keeps your home warmer when the weather is cold
• It also stops heat coming through the roof in the summer, which means your home will stay cooler
• You will not need planning permission and insulation will not cause any damp problems
• A well-insulated loft will keep your home nice and warm, but the loft space above will be colder
• So it’s important to insulate any water pipes and water tanks in the roof space to protect them against frost in winter. You will notice an immediate difference within your home once you have had insulation carried out
