Room In Roof Insulation

With house prices on the rise and space across the UK being at a premium, it’s no wonder more and more people are undertaking loft conversions in their homes.

Lofts can often be wasted spaces. That said, they can be big enough, and of a convenient enough shape, to be successfully transformed into an additional room.

Power Switch Energy can provide the specialist advice and products required to install insulation that will help the new room become a permanent extension of your home.

What Is Room In Roof Insulation?

If you decide to expand your property by moving into the loft, you’ll want to make it comfortable for any inhabitants. It also needs to be as energy efficient as possible.

Lofts are often forgotten about when it comes to insulation, especially if currently unused. That’s why it’s important to get the insulation right, before work starts on converting the space.

A warm room with good insulation will be a great place to be. It’ll also ensure your house is green with lower carbon emissions. That means all important energy savings!

How Much Energy Can Room In Roof Insulation Save?

Having your loft ceiling and walls insulated could help prevent the loss of up to 25% of heat from your property. Whilst energy saving and cutting costs on your bills is always great news, if you plan to use your loft as a room, you need to also ensure it’s comfortable. After all, who wants to spend time in a beautifully renovated loft room if it’s freezing cold?

In addition to successfully insulating the roof, you also need to think about vertical walls when turning your loft into a room. Heat doesn’t just escape upwards but also outwards. Power Switch Energy can provide a one-stop-shop when it comes to room in roof insulation.

Things To Consider When Converting Your Loft

Is it fit-for-purpose?

The first thing most people consider is the space on offer. Is it actually big enough to do what you want to do with the area? Will the shape of the loft work for your planned renovation of the space? Is access easy and safe enough for it to be used as a room? Will you be able to properly ventilate the space? These are a few of the first things you need to think about.

Physical room characteristics?

This can’t be overstated enough. If the loft has damp or condensation present, it needs to be dealt with. If the room has a flat roof or sloping ceilings, this is also something that needs to planned for. Taking the physical characteristics of the space into account could alter you plans significantly. With careful planning, you might be able to use the space better.
