Room in roof insulation is a specialist form of loft insulation designed specifically for properties with rooms set into the attic space. It involves fitting insulation boarding in between the rafters underneath existing plasterboard walls. This helps to trap heat within the home and create a blanket effect. It is a cost-effective way to cut energy bills and reduce the amount of heat lost through a property’s roof.
The insulated boards used in room in roof insulation are typically made from polystyrene or polyurethane, which are both effective materials for preventing heat loss. They are installed between the rafters and the existing plasterboard walls to help keep the warmth inside the house during winter and prevent the heat from entering the room during summer. It also reduces thermal bridging around the roof and prevents moisture from developing.
It makes a converted loft warm and cosy and improves the value and desirability of a living space. It cuts your energy bills and reduces CO2 emissions. It stops 25% of all heat being lost through uninsulated homes.
Insulating an attic room can significantly cut heating bills and make your house a more comfortable place to live in both the cold of winter and hot of summer. It can also improve the draught-proofing of your property and save on cooling bills in the summer.
Room in roof insulation can be expensive to install, however there are government grants available for this work as part of the ECO Scheme. You can speak to a Premier Connections ECO Team member to discuss your options and find out more.
