Homes lose more energy through the floor and ceilings combined than through external walls. Installing insulation in the underfloor and ceiling will compensate for the walls being missed out. An un-insulated underfloor will lose up to 20 per cent of internal heating or cooling.
If you have a suspended timber floor, glasswool insulation is an ideal solution for providing thermal and acoustic performance. Easy to cut and install, glasswool segments or blankets can be friction fitted and then strapped in place to provide the level of insulation required.
A specifically designed R1.8 underfloor roll with a wind wash barrier has been designed for underfloor applications. The wind wash barrier makes the product easier to install and protects the insulation from the effects of ‘wind wash’. (Air movement across insulation without a wind wash barrier can reduce the thermal performance). The wind wash barrier also allows the product to be stapled directly in place, and does not require additional strapping or expensive fasteners.
