Are you properly insulated? If you’re feeling the chill this winter, your heating bills are too high or perhaps the snow melted quicker on your roof than your neighbour’s? If so then you need to check your loft. The recommended thickness for loft insulation is 270mm, but the chances are you’ll have only 100mm or perhaps even none at all, and don’t just assume that if you bought a new build home in the last 10 years you have adequate loft insulation. Your current loft insulation may be old or no longer efficient. In adequate loft insulation can also lead to damp problems in your upstairs rooms, so don’t ignore that mould growth in the corner of your ceiling. Hire A Hubby Faversham can save you the trouble of finding a step ladder or struggling through the loft hatch, and offers a FREE survey of your loft space and will recommend the steps needed to properly insulation your home.
Installing loft insulation to the recommended depth will reduce wasted heat, cut your heating bills and reduce carbon emissions. You could typically save up to £175 a year from your energy bills and the cost of installation for the average home will be paid back within 1-2 years. Loft insulation is currently subsidised under the CERT (Carbon Emissions Reduction Target) and there are huge discounts available. However there are different types of insulation and not all of them may be suitable for your property, but Hire A Hubby Faversham can make sure you get the right product and at the best price.
If you’re thinking of selling your home then you must get an EPC (energy performance certificate) and if you’re a landlord; many prospective tenants can ask to view a EPC before they sign a rental agreement. More efficient loft insulation will help you achieve a higher energy efficiency rating, and could help you sell or rent your property.
