Homeowners In Suffolk Can Reduce Heating Bills & Wasted Emissions With Loft Services
Before 31 March 2021, Suffolk homeowners could apply for the Green Homes Grant scheme, which provides a voucher to be used towards the cost of installing energy-efficient improvements, such as loft insulation. However, that initiative has now ended, leaving homeowners seeking other options.
As we discuss in this blog, standard and raised loft boarding are fantastic solutions for improving the energy efficiency of your home, as well as boosting the overall property value.
Suffolk Homeowners: Get A Loft Ladder Supplied & Fitted With Insulated Hatch
When you get a loft ladder installed with The Loftman Company, you’ll notice that many are supplied and fitted with an insulated hatch. It's said that installing a non-insulated attic hatch can reduce the overall U value for your ceiling by up to 20%, according to Green Building Store.
Considering the level of heat that’s lost through your home’s roof (on average 25%), it makes sense for homeowners of Suffolk to have high levels of insulation in their loft to reduce this as best as possible - and having an insulated loft hatch fitted is no exception!
Looking For Loft Boarding In Suffolk? Get Raised Loft Boarding!
Raised loft boarding is a great way to ensure you have sufficient loft insulation installed while maintaining the effectiveness of the insulating materials. Traditionally, loft boarding is installed over the insulation in a way that ensures it doesn’t squash the wool, however, there needs to be a gap maintained to keep the quality of the airflow.
If the airflow is not maintained, then warm air movement is not consistent. This creates warmer patches, which later leads to condensation across your loft space. The problem with this is that the condensation turns into damp and mould, damaging other areas of the loft, while reducing the thermal quality of the insulation by up to 50%.
Getting raised loft boarding installed would mean that the thickness of the insulation can be increased, allowing you to save more heating, whilst saving more money on bills and lowering your overall carbon emissions.
If homeowners of Suffolk had raised loft boarding, they’d be ensuring that their stored items, wires and pipes are all kept in perfect order and zero damage is caused. This is even more important for new-build homeowners because the damage caused won’t be covered by your NHBC insurance when it's the outcome of “work carried out” on the property. In other words, standard loft boarding methods will void your warranty.
Loft Services Will Save Money For Homeowners In Suffolk!
Homeowners in Suffolk are likely to save money on heating bills year-on-year by getting an insulated hatch fitted with their ladder, along with raised loft boarding and thicker insulation layers.
On top of that, you’re likely to increase the value of your property in future years if you decide to move. This is because a safe and accessible storage room is an attractive feature for potential buyers, especially as it has the possibility of being the largest room in the house in terms of your floor space!
In addition to this, you could even see your home's overall energy rating increase due to the higher levels of insulation, which has the potential to add thousands of pounds to the value of your home.
