Was Your Home Prepared For The Cold Snap This Weekend?

Did you prepare your home in the autumn for this very cold weather we are experiencing at the moment?

Have you found your house isn’t as warm and cosy as you would like this winter? Then don’t despair we have the solution.

Don’t despair if you didn’t, it’s never too late to insulate.

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," points out Chris Brain at British Gas.

"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."

Here at Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire we have insulation to cover all your needs. And they are so easy to use, for example:

Vermiculite loft insulation is a natural material of thin flakes which is very light and which also contain traces of water. When exposed to heat, i.e., when heat rises into the loft, the flakes expand to provide very effective and high quality loft insulation.

Vermiculite loft insulation is odourless, clean and easy-to-handle. The material is very effective at stopping heat loss and, in warmer temperatures, is also a coolant.

Vermiculite loft insulation comes in bags or sacks which are simply emptied and raked into the gaps between the joists and the ceiling / loft floor a lot easier than the usual blanket insulation which is supplied and fitted in rolls.

Vermiculite loft insulation does not irritate when touched and is fibre-free.

So don’t put it off any longer
