Attic | EnergySolve

Keywords: Insulation, Attic Insulation, Air Tightness

A home loses approximately 25% of its heat through the roof of the building. Attic insulation is traditionally designed to prevent heat loss but not to protect from wind and draft. Consequently drafts and moisture damage the insulation over time, forcing gaps and damaging the material itself. Air tightness (link) used in conjunction with insulation will efficiently insulate your home through your attic, reducing your heating costs by (typically) over 22%. Grant aid (link to grants) is available for attic insulation. Contact EnergySolve for more info.

External Wall Insulation | EnergySolve

External insulation protects and prolongs the fabric of the building offers extraordinary rain and impact resistance and all all external insulation provided by EnergySolve comes with a 30 to 60 year guarantee. External Wall Insulation Systems are an extremely effective method of improving the energy efficiency of your home and increasing the capital value of the home itself.


Insulation Upgrade Works | EnergySolve

Remember that people expect your house to be well insulated, but an externally insulated home can expect to see a commensurate capital appreciation in the value of the building. While Internal insulation is really a necessity for every home it does not it does not lead to an appreciable capital value of your home as does External Wall Insulation.


Roof Insulation | EnergySolve

If the insulation in your attic is made from wool (fibreglass, sheeps wool, rock wool etc), is it less then 300mm thick. Do you find the house loses heat quickly once the heating is turned off.


Wall Insulation | EnergySolve

If you answer yes to all or the majority of these questions it would be beneficial for you to consider. If you already upgraded your insulation, was the upgrade carried out more than 5 years ago. Do you find the house loses heat quickly once the heating is turned off.


Windows & Doors | EnergySolve

All windows and external doors should be checked for draughts and, if necessary, draught proofed to reduce heat loss. 10% percent of heat loss of the average home happens through windows and 15% through your door. Double and triple glazing is available and heat recovery units are highly recommended. Contact EnergySolve for more info.
