Improving Insulation In An Old House

improving-insulation-in-an-old-house

If you live in an old house, it is vitally important that you keep on top of your insulation needs, and inspect your property on a semi-regular basis to ensure it’s as thermally efficient as possible.

You may feel like you are paying way more than you should on your energy bills; this is more than likely due to the age of your property.

There are many reasons why a dated property may lack insulation quality, from the building’s structure to the choice of materials used.

Luckily, when it comes to improving insulation in an old house, there are a number of things you can do to combat heat loss.

Why is My Old Home Losing Heat?

As mentioned above, there are numerous reasons why your dated property may be losing heat. However, it is impossible to tell which one is the case without a thorough inspection of your property.

Fortunately, we offer a free site survey to all customers here at Home Logic, so you can assess any current issues free of charge and with no obligation to use our services.

Here are just a few reasons why your house may be losing heat:

  • Old houses are built with solid walls which are not as thermally effective as cavity walls;
  • Properties built before the millennium were not constructed under the same stringent levels of building regulations we have today;
  • Your loft insulation may need replacing if it hasn’t already been replaced for some time now;
  • Your windows have not been upgraded to double or triple glazing;
  • You have damp and/or condensation issues around the house.

There are of course many other reasons that may be causing your home to lose heat, these are just some of the most common.

Improving Insulation in an Old House with Spray Foam

Improving insulation in an old house must start from the top. Did you know that over 25% of heat loss from a typical home is through the roof?

If you live in an older property and haven’t inspected your loft insulation in some time, the chances are it will need replacing. This means you are potentially losing hundreds of needless pounds through the top of your home.

Spray foam insulation is a remarkably efficient and cost-effective solution to dodgy loft insulation.

The material is sprayed into place using high-spec machinery. On impact, the foam begins to expand up to 100 times in size, and hardens almost instantaneously. This creates a covering blanket of insulation across the top of your home, that will combat heat loss and moisture gain all year round!

Home Logic Wall Insulation: The Next Logical Step

The next logical step to improving insulation in an old house will be to examine your walls.

Again, up to 25% of heat loss from your home can be through your walls. Together with your roof, if they are not properly insulated, these two elements could be releasing over half of your interior energy into the outside world. This is going to cause a huge spike in your energy bills.

The easiest and most effective way of insulating your walls is to use Home Logic Wall Insulation.

This revolutionary product has changed the way our industry approaches the application of wall insulation materials. It is simply sprayed or painted on to the outside walls of your home and left to dry in next-to-no-time.

Once this occurs, the material will sink into your masonry, and create an invisible barrier of protection against water, dirt and micro-organisms. This prevents the brickwork from getting wet, and reduces the amount of thermal bridging between the exterior and interior of your home.
