Are your feet freezing cold as you walk about your floor? Okay, freezing may be a bit too far – but sometimes it can feel as though your feet are like ice! This may have something to do with your level of floor insulation.
This is especially true if you live in a dated building, a wood cabin or a country cottage type property.
If you’ve got cold feet in the countryside, we can show you how to insulate a cottage floor with spray foam insulation.
The same advice goes for almost any property really, but we do love working in a nice dainty cottage, so let’s go with that!
Prevent Thermal Bridging
We can explore a range of options to insulate your floor, regardless of the material it’s made from. In cottages, you are more than likely to find wooden floors, but our expert team have experience with new build homes as well.
Insulating your floor will minimise the amount of thermal bridging your property is experiencing.
Thermal bridging occurs when heat escapes through your home through a certain material, i.e. a solid brick wall. The bridging is the transfer of heat from the inside of your home, through the brickwork or floorboards, out to the exterior.
This natural process severely compromises the insulation value and thermal qualities of your home. It is believed that insulating underneath your floorboards can save you so much energy, you’ll save around £40 each year on your bills.
You can also seal the gaps between your floors and skirting boards, with a simple DIY sealant, to prevent draughts from occurring.
