Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some commpnly asked questions about insulation and homes.

Q. What are the current requirements for Attic Insulation?
A. Building Regulations require a U-value of 16 in the attic. This is achieved through installing 270 millimetres of Rockwool RockPrime blown insulation.

Q. In addition to a warmer home and lower fuel bills, are there other benefits?
A. Yes. Many homes suffer from black mould growth on walls in bedrooms and bathrooms, mostly in bungalows. The mould occurs due to the coldness of the walls. After proper insulation installation the black mould should no longer appear.

Q. Why should I buy wall insulation?
A. According to independent government figures and "Which" magazine, your heating bills can be reduced by as much as 25% every year if you install effective wall insulation. This figure can increase to 35% with detached houses and bungalows.

Q. If my house was built today, would the walls be insulated automatically?
A. Yes. Since the early 1980's some form of wall insulation has been included in every new home built. This is standard building practice. To build a cavity wall without insulation is no longer allowed. Filling the cavity in an existing home with polystyrene beads reduces heat loss through the wall by 80%.
