Insulation Buyer’s Guide

Whatever type of property you’re working on, it’s important to think about how you’re going to keep it warm all year round. With all new homes now required to meet specific levels of thermal performance, there’s never been a better time to consider which type of insulation is most suited to your project.

Effectively insulating your property can significantly reduce heat loss and save you money on energy bills. Sheep’s wool and glass wool insulation are popular environmentally friendly options, but you’ll find an abundance of choice on the market. Most materials are available in loose bags, rolls and slabs, which are perfect for insulating floors, walls and loft spaces.

Types of insulation

There are many different types of insulation available on the market including boards, rolls, slabs (also known as batt insulation) and even insulated plasterboard. Insulating your home ensures it’s energy efficient, and you’ll notice a reduction in heating bills too. While cavity walls and lofts tend to be the most popular spaces to insulate, floors, pipes and sheds can all benefit from insulation too.
