Home insulation

If you want to reduce your energy bills and help the environment by reducing your CO2 emissions, then installing insulation into your home is one of the best ways to keep the heat in and the cold out. To help our clients, we are introducing a new insulation service that will allow our team to identify any missing or inadequate levels of insulation in your property while conducting our property surveys. This means that you will be notified of any problem areas, and we will have a team ready to re-lay or install insulation should you choose us to proceed with the repairs outlined in your report.

It's estimated that a quarter of heat lost from a property is through the roof of an uninsulated home. Insulating, or topping up, is an effective way of easily reducing your heating bills and reducing carbon emissions (Energy Saving Trust 2022).

If your home has poor insulation, or has no insulation at all, Peter Cox can offer a wide range of energy saving solutions to increase insulation efficiency in your home.

What Does Insulation Do?

Insulating your home is one of the best things you can do to achieve a more comfortable home and reduce your heating and cooling costs. It is an extremely effective, flexible and cost efficient solution that can be fitted in cavity walls, under floors, and even as insulated plasterboard over existing plaster walls.

 As well as protecting your home against the cold, it’ll help keep it cool in the summer months. The long-term benefits can’t be beaten to prevent heat loss and saving on energy bills.

Insulation keeps your home warmer for longer

If you create thermal barriers around your home, this will keep heat in and will mean your home stays warmer for longer.

Insulation saves energy and heating bills

Instead of losing heat through uninsulated areas, you will keep more heat in your home so you will need less energy to heat it. This will mean a potential reduction in the energy you use to heat your home and therefore your heating bills.

Insulation is environmentally friendly

The less energy needed to heat your home the less carbon footprint you will leave. This means you’re burning less energy which is good for your home and wallet, but also good for the planet too.

Insulation can improve your EPC rating

Your EPC rating (Energy Performance Certificate) is used to illustrate how much it costs to heat and light your home, with ways you can make it more energy efficient. Insulation is one of the most effective ways of increasing your rating and can be much cheaper than other alternatives.

Insulation can add value to your home

Are you wanting to move house? A good EPC score will increase the value of your home, and might make it easier to sell. When you’re purchasing a home an EPC score is a good indicator of an energy efficient home - so a high score will mean less money spent on bills in the long run.

Types of home insulation

There are several ways to insulate your home and all have their individual benefits. All insulation follows a similar principle - trapping warm air in the material itself and keeping the heat in.

However, there is more to consider than simply trapping heat when choosing your insulation. Where is your property losing heat? Does the insulation suit the layout of your property? Are there mould resistance or ventilation issues to consider?

Peter Cox have addressed these concerns with a range of insulation options for you to choose from:

Loft Insulation: If we are carrying out woodworm treatments in your attic we may be able to offer you loft insulation as part of the work.

Insulating Plaster Systems: Insulating plaster is designed to reduce heat loss through solid walls to help maintain a comfortable room temperature without over reliance on central heating.

Underfloor insulation: Reduces energy bills and provides warmer floors that are more comfortable to walk on.

The benefits of home insulation

Not only will you save money in the long run and help reduce your carbon footprint through reduced energy bills, you will also be able to notice the difference in comfort levels in the rooms benefiting from the newly installed insulation.

Furthermore by insulating your home as part of our treatments, the installation can be much more cost efficient than stand alone installation. Speak to your surveyor about insulation options when they are conducting a survey in your home.
