Loft Insulation Grants - Loughborough
Loft insulation is an essential component of any energy-efficient home. It helps prevent heat loss, reduce energy bills, and lower carbon footprint. For many homeowners in Leicestershire, upgrading their loft insulation could be the key to improving their home's energy efficiency.
The benefits of loft insulation
- Prevents heat loss
- Reduces energy bills
- Lowers carbon footprint
If you've noticed that your energy bills are higher than usual, or if you've experienced draughts, high levels of moisture, or a cold loft, then it's time to consider upgrading your loft insulation. Doing so can create a thermal barrier that prevents rising hot air from escaping your roof. The air pockets within the insulation trap the hot air, preventing it from being lost into the atmosphere.
The UK government estimates that if all homes were to have 300mm of blanket-style loft insulation, it could help the country meet its CO2 reduction targets. Not only will loft insulation save you money, but it can also significantly reduce your carbon footprint.
