With the arrival of winter, many homeowners brace themselves for a sharp increase in heating bills as the central heating is switched on. This doesn’t have to be an expensive time of year however, if your home is properly insulated. Homes without roof insulation can lose up to 25% of their heat, which equates to higher energy bills. Homes with wall and roof insulation help to keep the heat locked inside, so your thermostat doesn’t have to work so hard.
Home insulation has many other benefits, including a reduction in your carbon footprint as you’re using less energy, and a potential increase to your home’s value by increasing its energy efficiency rating. This makes insulation a popular choice for homeowners, but it can be confusing to decide what type of insulation to go for. One material that has achieved popularity amongst builders and customers alike is SuperFOIL insulation.
What is SuperFOIL Insulation?
SuperFOIL Insulation is a high-performance insulation material. It comes in the form of foil sheets, which take up less space than traditional fibre blanket materials once installed.
