Insulate your attic with Skyline Roofing & Building
Insulating your loft or attic, or topping up existing insulation to meet today’s guidelines, creates a thermal barrier that reduces the amount of heat lost through the roof of your home.
With 40% of your home’s energy loss being through the attic, your heating and cooling bills will decrease quickly after you add an insulation layer. This layer will seal gaps and cracks throughout your attic while also increasing the value of your insulation, resulting in a home that is better able to hold energy in.
Ceiling level roof insulation is generally the most cost effective of any energy efficiency upgrade made to a house. Even if you have some attic insulation you should upgrade it to today’s standard of 300mm of rockwool or equivalent.
Reduce Your Energy Cost
Traditionally attic insulation consisted of 100-150mm of rolled insulation placed between the ceiling joists. The problem here was that the exposed joists were still leading to a major source of heat loss through the ceiling of the home and the thickness of the insulation was not adequate to prevent heat loss.
Today’s strict regulations require at least 300mm of attic insulation. The method here is to fit 150mm of quilt Insulation between the ceiling joists and then roll another 150mm of Insulation the opposite way across the joists. This will eliminate them as a source of heat loss and bring your attic insulation up to the required thickness.
Top Up of Existing Insulation
Just because you can see insulation in your attic space doesn’t mean your attic is efficiently insulated. We commonly come across attics with 100mm of insulation poorly fitted between the joists. This will contribute to a major source of heat loss through the ceilings of your home.
Water Pipes and Tanks
All prices for attic insulation quoted by Skyline Roofing and Building include the lagging of all water pipes & water tanks within the attic space. We can also supply and fit energy saving lagging jackets for hot water cylinders.
