5 Areas To Insulate Around Your Home

Heat loss in your home could be detrimental to your pocket and the planet. Want a warmer, cosy home without spending a fortune on gas and electricity?

You can easily improve the comfort of your home whilst cutting energy bills with our spray foam insulation services (find out how much you could save here). The more your home is insulated, the warmer it will be in Winter and the cooler it will stay in the Summer sun. See our top five areas of your home to insulate.

1. Floor

Floor insulation is an effective way to keep your home warm but is quite often the most overlooked. Spray foam is the only product on the market that can provide an airtight seal for your floor, eradicating any draughts through its expandable, flexible properties. Most new builds will have ground floors made of concrete whereas older homes commonly have suspended timber floors. Spray foam insulation can be applied on the underside of the floor deck. According to the Energy Saving Trust, underfloor insulation could save you around £40 a year on average, alongside enhancing your comfort. Some alternatives include decorating with carpets, and rugs or installing wool under the floors. However, these products still allow cold air to circulate and penetrate, so aren’t particularly effective.

Floor and Wall Insulation

2. Walls

Timber frame walls can be insulated with spray foam insulation which not only helps maintain moderate living temperatures all year round but it provides soundproofing, reducing noise transfer while also improving the structural integrity and energy efficiency of your home.

3. Attic/ Loft

If you have a badly insulated loft space or attic, you could be losing heat through the top of your home. Insulating your loft, attic or roof space is a simple and effective way to reduce heat loss and lower your heating bills.

Spray foam attic insulation is a crucial way to lock in the heat and put a stop to mounting energy bills. It’s perfect for those awkward, unusual spaces and the foam is resistant to mould. Save on your bills and carbon dioxide emission.

Window and Door Insulation

4. Near Windows and Doors

Don't fancy a chill near the windows? We can apply spray foam insulation on the timber frame walls in your newly built home. The smaller and more precise application of spray foam in the space around windows is low-pressure and has a slower rate of expansion. After its application, the foam will be safely covered and windows protected to ensure a flawless and functional finish.

The room will retain the warmth and exclude draughts once the insulation is complete.

5. Garages, Outbuildings, Sheds and Containers

Spray foam can be used to insulate a range of outbuildings. The foam has an excellent moisture barrier and wraps tightly around the structure, effectively preventing condensation and improving the structural integrity of the building.
