Why insulate your loft?
A quarter of the heat in an average household is lost through the roof. Insulating your loft, attic or flat roof is a simple and effective way to reduce heat loss and save money on your heating bills.
What are the benefits of having loft insulation installed?
Insulating your loft can save you money on your energy bills while keeping your home warmer for longer.
What should I consider when installing my loft?
If you plan to use the loft or attic for storage, the most efficient way to insulate your loft will be by laying boards over the joists.
If you want to use your loft as a living space, you can insulate your room-in-the-roof by insulating the roof itself rather than the loft floor.
Inaccessible loft spaces
If your loft is hard to access, you should have blown insulation installed by a professional. The process involves specialist equipment to blow loose, fire-retardant insulation material made of cellulose fibre or mineral wool into the loft. Infinity Energy Organisation can help you find a reliable accredited installer to do this for you.
Installing flat roof insulation could save you similar amounts on your heating bills to loft insulation.
If your loft is damp or has condensation problems you may need to increase ventilation and get a Building Control Approval.
How much can I save?
If your loft has never been insulated, or the insulation is under 270mm, you could save up to £240 a year if you live in a detached house.**
How much CO2 will I save?
By insulating your loft, you will be saving as much as 990kg of carbon dioxide a year.
How much does it cost?
The costs for loft insulation will vary depending on your current insulation and the conditions of your loft. Infinity Energy Organisation can help you receive flexible finance options with easy monthly payments so you can insulate your loft and start enjoying savings on your energy bills.
Is it worth the investment?
Loft insulation is effective for at least 42 years and it should pay for itself many times over.

I was really impressed by the way Infinity Energy Organisation handled me and carried me as a customer and carried out the External Wall Insulation on my property. With only keeping my heating on for a couple of hours a day this has made my house much warmer and has reduced my energy bills. With their friendly and helpful staff and installers Infinity Energy kept me regularly updated on the next stages.
