When choosing your loft hatch it is important to consider insulation. As energy efficiency demands increase and money needs to be saved conserving energy is vital. If a loft hatch is not insulated warm air can get into the loft and cause condensation problems. In return, the cold air from the loft can get into your home reducing heat and therefore increase energy costs. The insulated loft hatch available from Manthorpe is fitted with thermally insulated lids and expanded polystyrene to prevent draughts.
