Up to 25% of your homes heat is lost through the roof making loft insulation one of the most important and simplest ways to reduce your heating bills. Heat flows from a warm area to a cold one and the colder it is outside the faster heat will escape.
As loft insulation is one of the quickest and cost effective ways to insulate your property the government have introduced a number of ways you can get Loft insulation for FREE. Those who do not qualify for a 100% grant will be eligible for at least a 50% contribution meaning the cost of the insulation can cost as little as £49.
