Why do we need insulation?

An uninsulated home loses approximately (these are very rough figures and will vary with different house types and construction methods):

  • 25% of its heat through the roof 
  • Loft insulation 
  • 33% through the walls 
  • Solid wall insulation 
  • 15% through the floors
  • Underfloor Insulation 
  • 15% through draughts
  • Fraught proofing
  • 20% through the windows. 
  • New thermal efficient windows

The vast majority of that heat loss (around 58%) comes from two areas i.e. the roof and walls.

The ironic thing is these are areas which are fairly straight forward to insulate (unless you have an old house with solid walls or your house has a room built into the roof space).

So it’s not hard to see why adding insulation to your walls and roof can reduce your heating costs significantly and it’s pretty affordable and easy to do.
