When planning a new home or undertaking a major renovation, insulation and cutting energy bills are often at the forefront of people’s thinking.

Government grants for insulation

Insulation is one of those things that many of us take for granted – after all, it’s usually out of sight so it’s also out of mind. However, it’s also something that has come a long way and still punches above its weight in terms of impact on our homes.

The benefits of insulation

While you might immediately think of preventing heat loss as the main benefit of loft insulation, using stone wool has several other notable boons. Instead of heat loss, consider temperature regulation. Homes can lose 25% of heat through the roof but using stone wool not only cuts down on heat disappearing through the top of your home but regulates temperature too. That means your home is warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
