Insulating your floor means adding an insulating material beneath the floorboards. Doing this will reduce heat escaping through the floor and into the ground. Nearly 15% of heat is lost from a house via this route. Insulation also acts as an aid to prevent draughts coming up through the floorboards. You can increase the insulation properties of your house by insulating the gaps between the skirting boards and the floor which will also help in reducing draughts from the outside elements.
Floor insulation is generally carried out when putting a new floor in place but do not worry as most floors can be retrofitted with insulating materials. Carrying this out will make significant savings on your heating bills.
Floor insulation costs and savings
I had boiler replaced two weeks ago , everything went smoothly as I have been expecting, engineers came on site spot on time everything boiler is working good , place left tidy , i am impressed with Company Warma , definitely would give 5 star
Don’t often do reviews but felt this warranted one. A little slow getting the fitting date sorted out but once this had been sorted everything was plain sailing from start to finish. Can’t fault the engineer who fitted my combi boiler. Nothing was to much trouble to him, explained everything has he went along. Would recommend without hesitation.
The old boiler and tank were removed and the new condensing boiler fitted by the two installers from XL Heating. They were friendly, informative and tidy, working well as a team for two days.
So far very happy.
