Qualifying Properties can now enjoy the benefits of Loft insulation with up to 100% Funding
Heat rises, and in an uninsulated home a quarter of your heat is lost through the roof. Insulating your loft, attic or flat roof is a simple and effective way to save that waste and reduce your heating bills
Loft insulation acts as a blanket to help stop heat escaping through the Roof of your home. Insulating your home isn’t a one off saving either, it will keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, helping you to save money on your energy bills year after year.

How is Loft insulation installed?
If access is easy and your joists are regular, you can use rolls of mineral wool insulation. The first layer is laid between the joists - the horizontal beams that make up the 'floor' of the loft – then another layer is cross-laid at right angles to cover the joists and make the insulation up to the required depth.
It’s simple to install and usually takes less than a few hours with little fuss or mess.
Why is this funded?
Due to obligations with the Government, Energy companies in the UK are providing insulation grants through various schemes in order to improve the energy efficiency of homes in the UK. Surveyours use installers that have access to the current scheme for Loft insulation allowing you to receive up to 100% Funding regardless of your age, income or location.
