Energy efficiency is a great current movement. Not only can being more energy conscious save the environment, it can also help you save money. In the loft, this is no different. There are a number of steps you can take to increase your energy efficiency in the loft. Here at Pinnacle Loft Conversions, we know just how important it is to create an energy efficient loft. As a result, we have produced this guide to improving efficiency in your loft conversion.
Loft insulation can save you up to £240 a year! This is because, the majority of heat from your home will be lost through the roof. Insulating the roof therefore, will keep this rising heat in. As a result, your home will stay warmer, and you won’t spend as much on heating bills.
Insulation is a long-lasting efficiency measure. In fact, it can last for up to 42 years! That’s a lot of savings that you could make.
Many companies offer loft insulation for free. Suppliers of this include EDF Energy, Eon, Scottish Power and Npower. Why not check with your company and see if you are eligible for free loft insulation?
Again, double glazing is a method of preventing heat loss from your home. However, some double glazing options are more energy efficient than others. It is always a good idea to get the highest efficiency rating available. As a result, you will save as much energy as you can.
Energy Efficient Light-bulbs
In a loft conversion, you have complete control over your lighting system. Why not opt for energy saving options such as LED lights. This will reduce your electricity bill, as well as your carbon footprint. In addition, you will save money on light-bulbs. This is because LED’s last a lot longer than standard light bulbs.
There are many ways to improve efficiency in your loft conversion. Energy efficient loft conversions can save you money on both gas and electric bills. Loft insulation, double glazing, and LED lighting are all energy efficient measures you can take. Why not contact us today, at Pinnacle Loft Conversions? We’re always happy to help.
