Fuel poverty - The benefits of loft insulation

Hot air rises, so without loft insulation you may be losing as much as a quarter of your heating costs through your roof. If your home already has loft insulation, but the material is thin, it won't be saving you as much money as it could.

If you live in a typical three bedroom semi detached property and have no loft insulation, installing the recommended 270 mm depth of insulation could save you over £200 a year on your fuel bills. Also, that’s around a tonne of carbon dioxide each year so not only will you be saving money and keeping your home toasty, you’ll be doing your bit for the environment too!

Loft insulation is a quick and easy, cost effective way of saving money. The loft insulation acts as a blanket, trapping heat rising from the rooms below, reducing the amount of heat lost through the roof, making your home feel warmer.
