Why Should I insulate my Attic?

On average over a year, an Irish home loses up to 30% of its heat through its roof, if it is not properly insulated. This loss of heat not only costs you money in the form of higher energy bills, but it also harms the environment by increasing greenhouse gas emissions.

The SEAI Home Energy Grants programme offers grants to help you improve the insulation of your home through the installation of attic or rafter insulation.

Attic Storage Upgrades

We can fit a raised insulated storage area to maintain as much space as possible for your future storage needs. If the loft roll insulation is compressed it reduces the u value, in order to avoid this we fit rigid insulation underneath the flooring area.

If your tank in the attic is a galvanised tank it will have to be removed and updated, this can all be arranged at the survey stage and be done before we insulate the attic.

Attic Stairs

Our fold down wooden attic stairs are made with high quality timber and their easy fold design make it so much easier and safer to access your attic.

The team can fit an attic stairs in your home on the same day they insulate your attic saving you time.

Roof Ventilation

Roof ventilation is very important when completing an attic upgrade. Extra ventilation isn’t always needed especially if there is already cross flow ventilation in place. At the survey stage we can assess the ventilation and fit the required roof vents if needed as it’s a SEAI requirement.

The SEAI offer grants of up to €1500 for Attic Insulation in homes in Ireland. At Powell Insulation Ltd, we can guide you through the Attic Insulation Grants & help you apply today.

Insulating your attic can lead to considerable savings on your energy bills. With a High Cost Low Impact upgrade, you could save up to 30% of your energy bills.

To determine the right type of insulation, consider factors such as your home’s design, your climate, how your home was constructed, and the current R-Value of your home. Our experts at Powell Insulation can consult with you to determine the best insulation fit for your property.

The R-value measures how effectively the insulation material can resist heat flow. The higher the R-value, the better the material can insulate. It’s something homeowners need to consider based on their region’s climate and the part of the house that needs insulation.

Common areas that can be insulated are the attic, walls, floors above unheated garages, and in crawlspaces. These are spots where most heat escape can occur in a typical home.

Improper installation of insulation can lead to skin, eye, and respiratory irritation. Some insulation materials also pose fire hazards if incorrectly installed. That’s why hiring professionals ensures that installation is done safely and effectively.

Signs of under-insulation include fluctuating indoor temperatures, high energy bills, and walls that are cold to the touch in winter. If your home has these symptoms, it’s a good idea to get an insulation check-up.

Typically, insulation can last for decades if properly maintained. However, if you notice a significant increase in your energy bills, draughty rooms, or damp insulation material, it might be time to consider an insulation upgrade.
