Energy efficiency considerations for loft conversions

Being more conscious of the energy we use, and trying to cut down on wasted energy is a great way to do something positive for the environment. But it can also help you save money too. Loft conversions can be energy efficient, if you take the right steps throughout the planning and building process. 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 loft conversions and energy efficiency.

What are the important energy efficiency considerations for loft conversions?

To keep your loft conversion energy efficient, there are a number of considerations to take into account. These include:

  • Loft conversion insulation
  • Double glazing for your loft conversion

Insulating your loft conversion

Choosing and installing the right type of loft insulation can save you up to £240 a year! Definitely not a saving to be sniffed at. Insulation works so effectively in the loft, because the majority of heat from your home will be lost through the roof. The insulation prevents this from happening, keeping your home warmer for longer. As a result, you wont need to switch the heating on as often, and you’ll make big savings.
If you are installing a new loft conversion, insulation is definitely something that should be discussed before the building work begins.
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.

Double Glazing in your loft conversion

Loft conversion windows are available in a range of prices and qualities. If you want to stop your heat escaping, you should consider installing double glazing in your new loft conversion. This is because it is more energy efficient, keeping much of the heat in. This will again help to lower your energy bills.

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.
