Insulating your home

Bills, Bills, Bills, we all get them and usually can not do anything to reduce the amount. However, the one bill that can be reduced and that is for heating your house.

Many people do not realise that a lot of their expensive heat is actually leaving the house through gaps and holes in areas with lack of proper insulations.

The result of this ends up to be living in a fairly cold house and wasting money on the heat energy that does not stay in one area.

So where are these area’s and what are the solutions?

The Icynene Spray Foam Insulation System is a series of soft, flexible spray foam insulation products that delivers up to 50% greater energy savings when compared to other home insulation products.

Floors

In the last twenty years we have realised that a lot of heat is lost through the floors. We can prevent this by using special insulations designed for this area. These type of insulation usually come in sheets of 8 by 4 and can be cut to fit the floor area.

How thick it should be is up to you but there is a minimum level is required to meet Building Regulation levels.

Do remember that heat rises and that is why floors could end up very cold if not enough insulation has been used.
