ROOM IN ROOF INSULATION
Insulating your room-in-roof is a simple way of reducing heating bills and stopping heat from escaping through your roof space. A room-in-roof is simply a room that is set into the roof space. A room-in-roof is accessed from a fixed staircase and will typically have sloping ceilings, dormer or sloping windows. Because of the unique design, a room-in-roof is often poorly insulated and overlooked when applying insulation measures.
Around 25% of heat loss in uninsulated homes happens through the roof. Room-in-roof insulation is
a relatively low-cost option, that’s generally effective for around 40 years and will pay for itself
several times over in this period. Room-in-roof insulation also helps to reduce your heating bill,saving you between £45 and £150 every year; it will also reduce your carbon emissions and keep
heat out of your house in the summer months. Installation is usually quick and easy, taking around 1-2 hours.
Room-in-roof insulation solution is well known to cut heating costs by up to 25%. The actual monetary and carbon dioxide savings may vary depending on several factors such as the amount of insulation already owned, heat use during the cold months, types of fuel and etc. Even if your loft is already insulated, our Green Deal Assessor will check that you have the recommended depth in order to maximise savings.
