Highly recommended! Great job done in excellent time. Nice team of guys, polite and friendly and left the property immaculate. Did exactly what they said they would without any catches, really is 100% without any cost to the customer, just a few cups of tea is all it cost me and my house is now fully insulated. Very happy.

What is Loft Insulation?
UK Eco Solutions offers efficient loft insulation solutions, acting as a protective barrier to capture and retain warmth in your home. Installed between joists or within rafters, it functions like a comforting blanket, maintaining temperature balance year-round. Loft insulation prevents heat loss in winter and keeps interiors cooler in summer.
Choose the right insulation type to enhance energy efficiency and overall comfort. By trapping warm air and allowing moisture to pass through, it prevents heat from escaping through the roof, reducing energy bills and carbon footprint. Explore the science of thermodynamics for deeper insights into loft insulation’s workings.
The Difference Between Warm & Cold Lofts
Cold lofts, placed between floor joists, offer cost-effective insulation but may experience temperature fluctuations and condensation. In contrast, warm lofts require insulation for both the floor and rafters, regulating loft temperature and preventing heat loss through the roof.
How To Insulate A Loft
When insulating your loft, start with a cost-effective and straightforward approach. Begin by clearing out the space and insulating pipes and water tanks to prevent freezing. Ensure any electrical wiring is positioned above the insulation with professional guidance. Measure your loft and purchase enough blanket insulation, aiming for a depth of at least 270mm.
Roll out the insulation between the joists, using 100mm thick wool for the initial layer and 200mm for the second layer. Professional installation typically starts at £250, while DIY costs range from £150 to £200. Potential savings can exceed £225 annually, outweighing initial costs.
Can I Receive Free Loft Insulation?
You may qualify for free loft insulation through the British Government’s ECO4 Scheme if you meet certain eligibility criteria. This initiative assists households with low incomes to improve energy efficiency. If you or someone in your home receives specific benefits, you may be eligible for funding. Check your eligibility for free loft insulation by clicking here.
Blanket insulation, available in rock, glass, or mineral fibre rolls, is a popular choice for loft insulation. Our eco-friendly preference is Earth wool by Knauf. It’s cost-effective and suitable for insulating between joists but not ideal for the roof.
Sheet insulation, crafted from rigid boards of synthetic or natural materials, is perfect for insulating the underside of your roof. Although effective, it is usually more costly. These boards can also be adorned for decoration purposes.
Loose Fill & Blown Fibre
Loose-fill insulation, using lightweight materials like cork granules or recycled newspaper, supplements or stands alone but can be messy. Blown-fibre insulation suits hard-to-reach areas but may not fully insulate a draughty loft; it’s costly and needs professional installation.
