Attic Insulation and Rafter Insulation
Attic insulation acts as a shield against temperature extremes, ensuring your home remains at a comfortable temperature year round.
By adding insulation to your attic, you create a barrier that traps warmth in winter and repels heat in summer. This essential upgrade to your home minimises energy loss, and significantly reduces the cost of heating your home.
Attic insulation involves several steps during installation. First, any existing insulation is evaluated by our team and removed if necessary. Next, insulation material, such as fibreglass, or insulated boards, is carefully laid into the attic. This process covers the floor creating a thermal barrier that prevents heat transfer between the living space and the attic. To ensure maximum efficiency, insulation is evenly distributed, avoiding gaps or compression. Proper ventilation measures are also crucial to prevent moisture buildup and ensure the roof structure is properly ventilated. The more you insulate the more you should ventilate.
If you have a converted attic, rafter insulation will be the best approach. This involves insulating the slope or pitch of the roof, known as the rafters, to create a comfortable living space. This process typically includes placing insulation material between or over the rafters to maintain a comfortable temperature within the attic. Insulation boards are often used to cover the rafters. This method ensures that the living area remains cosy by preventing heat loss in winter and minimising heat gain in summer. Properly insulating the rafters in a converted attic is vital to maintaining a comfortable environment and maximising energy efficiency within the living space.
Attic insulation not only maintains a cosy atmosphere indoors but also contributes to a more sustainable living environment by lowering energy consumption. Invest in attic insulation as part of your One Stop Shop project for lasting comfort, improved energy efficiency, and a greener home.
