Loft Insulation Installation in Luton, Norfolk, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire
A quarter of heat is lost through the roof in an uninsulated home. Insulating your loft, attic or flat roof is a simple and effective way to reduce heat loss and reduce your heating bills.
Loft insulation is effective for at least 40 years and it should pay for itself many times over.
If access is easy and your loft joists are regular, the most common loft insulation is rolls of mineral wool insulation. The first layer is laid between the joists – the horizontal beams that make up the floor of the loft – then another layer is laid at right angles to cover the joists and make the insulation up to the required depth.
At NCS we can also install Low-E Foil Insulation – this allows for the loft to be boarded for storage, without affecting the thermal performance (unlike mineral wool insulation).
Low-E is produced from non-toxic Closed Cell Polyethylene Foam which is heat laminated between two surfaces of 99.4% pure aluminium facings. It’s manufactured using up to 40% recycled material.
Low-E foil insulation is primarily used in general construction, under roofing, attic spaces, crawl spaces, or in walls, as part of the buildings insulation system. Other uses include HVAC systems, auto/boat insulation, and packaging products. Commercial steel buildings and post frame buildings are also areas that can benefit from Low-E Insulation.
What makes Low-E a truly space age product is that the large lightweight rolls, made from recycled material allow for easy installation. Low-E Insulation has the ability to resists all three types of heat transfer while providing a full vapour barrier, with sound deadening properties that also has a Class A/ Class 1 Fire Rating. Most important of all, it’s a cost effective alternative in comparison to traditional types of insulation.
