Loft insulation is one of the easiest ways to keep your house warm, understanding insulation

Loft insulation

With an estimated 26% of a home's heat escaping through the roof, adequately insulating your loft could save you up to £180 on your annual heating bills.

Cheap and relatively simple to install yourself, once you’ve insulated your loft you shouldn’t need to do it again for another 40 years.

Simply place insulation blankets between beams and across all other exposed surfaces, ensuring your material is at least 270mm thick.
