As much as 25% of all the heat lost from an average home escapes through the roof. Over 1 million homes have no loft insulation at all.
Heat rises, and in an un-insulated home 25%* of your heat is lost through the roof. Insulating your loft, attic or flat roof is a simple and significantly effective way to prevent heat loss and therefore reduce your heating bills. Loft insulation is effective for at least 40 years, and it will pay for itself over and over again in that time.
Loft insulation not only keeps you warm in the winter, it also helps you stay cool in the summer by preventing the heat in the attic coming through the roof space.
Loft insulation works by creating a barrier to the hot air, which is rising from the lower levels of your house towards the roof. As hot air rises, it starts to escape through your roof unless you place something in its way. Therefore, it is only adequate insulation that prevents it from being lost into the atmosphere.
To achieve the maximum heat retention, it is recommended that at least 270mm thick insulation be used in the loft of all homes. At this level, the least amount of heat will be lost. So it may be worth checking your existing insulation to see if it is actually at this level.

I recently had a new boiler installed by you. I just had to write and tell you how very pleased I am by your installers Craig and the other young man. They were very well mannered, helpful and clean workers. I cannot praise them enough.
I would like to take the opportunity on to thank everyone at Premier for the installation and work carried out by your team. The work was carried out efficiently, conscientiously and the job was left tidy, putting us at ease.
Premier has always carried out work to a high level and responded to any concerns and resolved any issues immediately. They have provided information and statistics where required and provided excellent customer service and satisfaction.
