Prepair For Winter With Help Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire
You won’t be thinking about frozen pipes at the moment will you? But now is the time to be sorting out your pipes.
Did you know frozen pipes are the biggest cause of disasters in the home and could be easily avoided. The good news - Some tactically-applied loft insulation might just save the day. And now is the time to do it, not when the bad weather arrives.
"The quickest, easiest and cheapest way to stop your pipes freezing in your loft is to remove the loft insulation below the pipes and place it on top of them. The heat from the rooms below keeps them from freezing and the insulation above maintains your loft cover.
The average home owner simply doesn't realise how much money can be saved through insulation. "Your home loses a third of its heat through the walls, so insulating wall cavities could save you around £135 a year, and insulating your loft could also save you up to £175.
Even if you have insulation already, some people's loft insulation is only two inches thick, which is only about 20% of the recommended thickness. Topping up this insulation alone could reduce your bills by around £40 each year.
So if your home isn’t as warm as you would like then you need to come and see us at Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire for lots of insulation ideas.
