What is Home Insulation?

Insulation is a method to help you keep the desired temperature in your house all year round, protecting it against cold in the winter and the excess heat in the summer. Usually, modern houses are built to very good insulation standards, but older houses in the UK will need some work to make sure they are well insulated.

You can choose to insulate your roof, floors, walls, windows and doors. The most important thing is the walls since for a typical house the walls will lose around 30 to 40 per cent of the heat. The roof comes in second place, accounting for around 25% of heat loss. Then comes windows and doors with 20% and finally, the floor.

How Can You Tell Whether Your Current Home Insulation Needs Replacing?

If you suspect that your home insulation needs replacing, there are various ways that you can tell, including;

  • The temperature in your home changes frequently,
  • You are having a hard time getting your home to stay at the ‘right’ temperature,
  • Your home is full of drafts,
  • Certain rooms in the home have a draft,
  • Your energy bills are very high,
  • A member of your household frequently suffers from allergies and illnesses,
  • You frequently have leaks, condensation and other such moisture issues,
  • You have problems with rats, mice, squirrel, insects and other pests,
  • The insulation appears to be wet, thin or breaking down.

Where Do You Need to Insulate Your Home to Avoid Heat Loss?

On a cold winter’s day, heat can escape from your home in all different directions. So, when insulating your home, you should think about your whole home, including;

  • The roof,
  • The walls,
  • The floor,
  • The windows and doors.

It’s a common misconception that heat only goes up and escapes from the roof, however heat actually travels in all directions.

How Much Money Could You Save By Investing in Proper Insulation for Your Swindon Home?

If you were to ensure your home is properly insulated, you could potentially save yourself as much as £700 a year. Having the correct home insulation helps reduce heat loss, cut utility bills and could even make you and your family less reliant on standard home heating and cooling systems.

All in all, not only will you be saving money, but you’ll also feel a lot more comfortable in your home!
