A staggering 25% of heat is lost through an un-insulated loft which is why current building regulations recommend 270mm (10”) of loft insulation in new properties. As cavity wall and loft insulation installers, Energystore offer a free survey of loft insulation to check the depth of your existing insulation and advise on any improvement. Typically, insulation is topped up to 270mm by cross-laying to achieve optimum thermal resistance. We also check insulation of tanks and pipes to ensure that they conform to current standards. Items may still be stored in your loft by adding extra battens and loft boards to raise the storage area above the insulation depth.

Cost of Loft Insulation
This depends on how much existing loft insulation you have. We don’t take out the old material but make use of it by laying new insulation on top until we achieve the new depth of 270mm (10”).This is an investment which can attract grant support, so Energystore endeavour to get you the best price available in the market at the time. Contact us for the latest details.
Grants are available for cavity wall insulation which are provided by the utility companies through the NISEP programme (Northern Ireland Sustainable Energy Programme) www.housingadviceni.org and by the SEAI (Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland) www.seai.ie
