Loft Insulation

Save money and energy with loft insulation!

Did you know that up to 25% of heat loss in homes escapes through a poorly insulated roof? 

ECO Matters can fund and install loft insulation to reduce this heat loss drastically, resulting in a warmer home and lower bills.

As much as a quarter of a property’s heat is lost through its roof, meaning effective loft insulation is one of the best ways to cut energy costs. While many properties already have 50-100mm of insulation installed, 270mm of mineral wool insulation can make savings of up to £220 per year – while reducing your carbon footprint!

Using less energy to heat your home reduces emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) – one of the biggest culprits in global warming. If 270mm of loft insulation was installed across the country, we could save over £500 million a year in energy consumption and prevent nearly four million tonnes of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere.

How it works

Installation is easy and usually takes just 1 to 3 hours to complete. Mineral wool (glass fibre) is rolled out on the floor of the loft, working like a blanket to trap the rising heat in your home. The mineral fibre used is high-performance, fire-proof and non-toxic and once installed will be effective for at least 40 years.

Layers of wool are rolled between roof joints, with blown loft material used in harder-to-reach areas such as ceiling voids, under boards or in difficult corners. Once a second layer has been laid at right-angles, a total depth of 270mm ensures warmth remains inside your home.
