Did you know that as much as 10% of the heat in a room can be lost through uninsulated ground floors and potentially higher, up to 15%, if the house has been well insulated or thermally improved in other areas?
Adding insulation to a floor is one of the wisest home improvements that you can undertake. Insulation not only provides a return on the investment but makes your home much more comfortable for your family and reduces drafts and illness.
Cold floors are a major complaint among homeowners. Often the problem is an un-insulated floor above an unheated crawlspace or basement. If you have a vented crawlspace with insulated ducts and no pipes, the best course of action is to insulate the floor above it.
Floor insulation also acts to prevent draughts from coming up through the floorboards. In addition, the household should also consider insulating the gaps between the skirting boards and the floor, which also helps in reducing draughts.
Floor insulation is most commonly done when putting a new floor in place, but most floors can be retrofitted with an insulating material, and this will make a large saving to your overall heating bill.
