home and loft insulation

Save money by insulating your home with Confidence Scotland.


Loft insulation is an effective way to save energy and money at home. A well-insulated house keeps warmth exactly where you need it - indoors.


So, insulating your loft - or topping up any insulation you have already - will help to heat your home more efficiently. Using less energy reduces carbon dioxide emissions (CO2): one of the biggest causes of climate change. You will also save money on your bills.


Loft insulation is effective for at least 40 years, and it will pay for itself over and over again in that time. The better insulated your home, the less energy you need to keep it warm - the more money you'll save in the long run.


By saving energy, your household will produce less CO2. So, adding or topping up your loft insulation is a great way to do your bit - and reduce your impact on the environment.

How does it work?


Heat will always flow from a warm area to a cold one. The colder it is outside, the faster heat from your home will escape into the surrounding air.
Insulation makes it much more difficult for heat to pass up through your roof by providing a layer of material which has lots of air pockets in it. These pockets trap heat, cutting what is known as the U value of the loft.

What's it all about?


It's never been more important to think about insulating your loft. Without proper insulation a lot of the valuable, expensive energy you use to heat your home will be lost through the loft. The recommended depth for mineral wool insulation is 270mm however there are other materials which require different depths.

What you could save


Insulating your loft could save you around £145 per year on your energy bills if you don't have any insulation there at the moment. If everyone in the UK topped up their loft insulation to 270mm, around £520m would be saved each year!
