How does Roof Insulation Work?
Insulation aims to conserve and keep in heat while preventing the transfer of heat through the walls, floors and roofing that encapsulates your home, this means that you will spend less time heating your home and your internal heating does not need to work as hard, even when someone leaves the window open...Since you don't need to heat your home as much you are saving money on bills while lessening your negative impact on the environment, a win-win.
Roof insulation, in particular, has a detrimental effect on how insulated your home is since heat rises the roof is the first place that heat can escape if you let it, roof insulation prevents or reduces this process. Additionally, in summer when the sun beats down on your roof insulation can prevent your home from feeling hot and stuffy. A common misconception about roof insulation is that it is just meant to keep your home warm, while this is true the reality is roof insulation reduced the movement of heat out.
Heat loss in uninsulated properties can result in increased energy usage and higher bills, as warm air rises in the home for example, it can escape through the roof if insulation has not been appropriately installed. Additionally, during the warmer months, strong heat from the sun can be absorbed through the roof leaving your home feeling hot and stuffy.
Roof insulation in particular acts as a buffer to the penetration of this heat, resulting in a cooler and fresher environment, and your loft and other rooms feeling more comfortable during the heat of summer. All our insulation boards are designed to be easy to cut and fit, meet the appropriate environmental and quality control standards for your peace of mind and are suitable for use in a number of applications including roof, wall and floor systems.
How to install Roof Insulation?
The easiest and most cost effective way to install roof insulation is the cold loft option. This type of pitched roof insulation is placed over and between the wood beams. This will not only stop the heat excaping from your home but leave your loft space uninsulated so it remains warm in the summer and cold in the winter. Alternatively, warm insulation is installed directly under the roof. This type of pitched roof insulation will reduce heat loss and means your loft won't become hot in summer and cold in winter.
