How Much Energy Does Insulation Save?

How Much Energy Does Insulation Save

How much energy does insulation save? This is an important question to ask and one that more and more of us are becoming interested in.

Unfortunately, it comes as no surprise either as energy bills are on the rise again, as they always usually are! We’re all now desperately trying to find ways in which we can save money on energy costs but keep are homes warm and comfortable.

There is a way of achieving both and that is to effectively insulate your property.

Of course, when it comes to results, it is the amount of energy, and the money you save that proves to be the overall indicator of success.

Heat loss causes more energy use, which equates to more expenditure-and more of your hard-earned cash going to waste in a bid to heat your home.

If your insulation doesn’t adequately prevent heat loss, it won’t be saving you any money at all! In fact, a property that is not appropriately insulated will lose around 25% of its heat through the roof alone.

How Much Energy Does Insulation Save?

But if your property is adequately insulated with a high degree of accuracy, how much energy does insulation save?

It’s hard to say an exact figure or provide accurate detail that combines the energy-saving values of all elements of your home. So let’s start with the loft. The Energy Saving Trust reckons that on average, a semi-detached house could save up to £140 a year just by having adequate loft insulation in place (between 0 and 270mm).

This then jumps up to £240 a year for detached houses. That’s quite a lot of money saved – totalling over a thousand pounds across five years!

Increase Energy Efficiency with Spray Foam Insulation

Here at Home Logic, we use spray foam insulation to insulate our customers’ roof spaces. This fantastic product offers up to 50% greater energy savings in comparison with alternative home insulation products.

This means you can save up to 35% in your heating costs. The product’s versatility allows our installation team to insulate even the most complex of building shapes and designs.

How does it work? When the semi-wet material comes into contact with the area of application it begins to expand – reaching 100 times in size. This all-encompassing effect creates a protective layer across the roof of your house – helping to keep warmth in and moisture out!

Home Logic External Wall Insulation

Did you know that external wall insulation can also make a significant difference to your overall energy usage? This is true for both cavity walls and solid walls, despite some retailers suggesting this procedure is only suited to solid wall structures.

Home Logic Wall Insulation allows your outer-wall to become water-absorbent free. Materials that are wet transfer heat a lot faster than dry materials, so making the outside of your walls impermeable to water helps to keep them thermally efficient.

Careful and stringent planning has proved that plain brick walls, containing 5% damp content, have up to 50% less insulation performance than those that are completely dry.

So even if the outside of your house is just a little bit wet, it can be losing up to half of its insulation quality!

Installing external wall insulation combats this problem and ensures your masonry remains dry. If you live in a detached household, this could save you as much as £455 every single year.
