Why Insulate your home?

Heat Loss in your homeThe two best ways to reduce Heat Loss and the amount of energy a home uses are:

Both types of insulation can have a dramatic effect. A correctly insulated home can reduce fuel bills by as much as €1000 per year (depending on your house size) and once it’s in place it lasts a lifetime.

Think insulation

In doing so you will drastically reduce the harmful CO2 emissions caused by your home’s energy consumption.

Attic Insulation

Fibreglass insulation is rolled into the attic space between & across the joists, difficult to reach areas can be insulated with blown shredded fibreglass. Cold water pipes and cold water tanks are lagged and sealed. Insulated walkways can be installed for safe access from your attic hatch to your water tanks.
