Loft Insulation: Enhancing Energy Efficiency and Lowering Energy Bills 

At Emit Zero, we specialise in loft insulation, offering a convenient and effective solution to enhance your home's energy efficiency and reduce energy bills. Our insulation service creates a protective barrier in the roof space, preventing heat from escaping the rooms below. Typically, this involves insulating between and across the joists of the loft floor. 

In homes without insulation, approximately 25% of heat is lost through the roof, resulting in wasted energy and higher energy bills. Our loft insulation directly addresses this issue. It is an affordable and efficient form of insulation, with a quick and minimally disruptive installation process. Once installed, our loft insulation can last for over 40 years, providing long-term benefits and substantial savings that more than compensate for the initial investment. 

If your loft currently lacks insulation, taking the necessary steps to insulate it can lead to significant savings in heating bills. Our professional team ensures a relatively swift installation process, typically completing it within a day for a standard-sized property. 

At Emit Zero, we recognise the importance of an effective loft insulation installation. Our insulation not only traps warm air inside the house, preventing it from escaping through the roof but also addresses condensation concerns while allowing moisture to pass through, creating a healthier living environment. By tackling heat loss through the roof, our loft insulation improves energy efficiency, reduces household expenses, and minimises your carbon footprint. 

During the loft insulation process, we take into account the ventilation requirements of your home and insulate any tanks or pipes located within the loft space. Our primary objectives during the loft insulation retrofit are to eliminate thermal bridges, ensure adequate cross ventilation, and reduce air leakage from the rooms below. By achieving these goals, our loft insulation maximises energy efficiency and contributes to a more sustainable and cost-effective home.

Answers to our most frequent questions

How does loft insulation work?

At Emit Zero, we use a range of insulation materials tailored to the specific needs of your home. These materials act as a blanket, trapping warm air inside your house. Typically, we install the insulation between and on top the joists of your loft floor, preventing heat from escaping into the loft whilst minimising thermal bridges. This installation method, known as 'cold loft' insulation, is quick and straightforward. Additionally, we take care to insulate water tanks, piping, and, whenever possible, draught-proof the loft hatch to maximise energy efficiency. 

Can you have too much loft insulation?

Yes, it is possible to over-insulate your loft, which can have negative effects. While insulation aims to retain heat, it can also impede the escape of moisture from the air. Excessive insulation can lead to moisture build-up in specific areas, such as around pipes and ceilings. This excess moisture creates a conducive environment for mould growth, which can be detrimental to your respiratory health if not addressed. Achieving a balance between insulation and ventilation is crucial to allow proper airflow while keeping your home adequately warm. 

How long does loft insulation installation take?

The duration of the loft insulation installation depends on various factors, including the size and complexity of the project, as well as any unforeseen challenges. For smaller attic or loft spaces, the insulation process can typically be completed within a few hours. However, larger spaces may require a full day or more. Our installation process involves meticulous steps, such as preparing the attic or loft space, cutting the insulation to the appropriate size, installing the insulation, and sealing any gaps or openings. Taking the necessary time for installation ensures a high-quality result, maximising energy efficiency and overall comfort. It is advisable to plan for potential contingencies and allow for ample installation time. 

Can I install loft insulation myself, or should I hire a professional?

While it is technically possible to install loft insulation yourself, we highly recommend hiring a professional insulation installer for optimal outcomes. Emit Zero's team of experts possesses the necessary knowledge and experience to ensure proper installation. They are equipped to handle any challenges specific to your loft space and can provide valuable guidance on suitable insulation materials and techniques. By entrusting the job to professionals, you can have peace of mind knowing that the insulation will be correctly installed, maximising energy efficiency and avoiding potential issues in the long run.
