Underfloor Insulation Birmingham

Underfloor insulation is an exceptional method to keep your property warm and comfortable. Heat loss could occur from either the fabric within the floor or through small gaps. This is why underfloor insulation is fundamental not only for a warmer house but for reduced energy bills.

The insulating is fitted under the floorboards or to seal the gaps. When it comes to heating your floors, its usually only the ground floor that needs insulating, as there’s little to no heat rising to it. A floor on an upper level won’t need insulating as heat will rise to keep it at a comfortable temperature.

Underfloor insulation involves either wet or dry systems. Wet is a water-based method involving a series of pipes pumping water around your floor. Dry systems are electric, combing a network of wires under the flooring. We are happy to discuss our methods with you to determine which is best for your home.

Types of Underfloor Insulation

Underfloor insulation is a method of retaining heat within your home, saving you money with reduced energy consumption. This is beneficial to any home, yet makes more of an impact when the home is above a cold space, such as a basement. There are two floor types which determine how the insulation is fitted: suspended and solid floors.

  • Reduces condensation and mould growth
  • More comfortable, warmer home
  • Better savings on your energy bills
  • Fitted externally with little disruption
  • Finished ready for decoration

Underfloor Insulating

Insulating a floor is done through adding an insulating material beneath the floorboards and between joists; reducing the heat that escapes through the floor and into the ground. Approximately 15% of heat is lost from a house in this way. Insulation can also act to prevent draughts from coming up through the floorboards.

Two Methods of Underfloor Insulating:

  1. If your house has a basement or cellar then you might be able to see wooden joists
    and the undersides of the floorboards from below. If this is the case then you have a
    suspended timber floor. It is also likely that you have this type of floor if there are
    ventilation bricks on the outside of your house that are below floor level.
  2. If you cannot access the space underneath your floor, you will need to lift a corner
    of the carpet and underlay.

Benefits of Underfloor Insulation

Cost-Effective

Underfloor insulation could significantly save you money once installed. Your energy bills will start to decrease as you rely less on your heating. The insulation traps warmth within your property, but also regulates your property from becoming too warm in the summer months.

Thermal Efficiency 

Underfloor insulation can be fitted on a wide span of the floor. This means it distributes heat evenly throughout your home. No longer will you have to worry about cold spots or underfloor draughts, as the floor will stay warm and comfortable despite this.

Add Value

Underfloor insulation is an attractive part of any home. You can add value to your property for potential buyers. This method of insulation has a fantastic reputation in its functionality and seamless installation. Enhance your home when you choose underfloor insulation.
