Attic Insulation

SEAI advises that attic insulation is the most cost-effective insulation or upgrade for a house or apartment. Around 25% of a home’s heat loss is through the loft and roof.

These are the main benefits of our insulation service:

  • Energy Savings:Proper attic insulation helps regulate your home’s temperature, reduce heating bills, and save you money on energy bills.
  • Increased Comfort: Our loft insulation services will ensure consistent temperatures throughout your home, eliminating drafts and cold spots.
  • Moisture Control: Our insulation solutions help prevent moisture buildup in your attic, minimising the risk of mould growth and structural damage.
  • Noise Reduction: Attic insulation also acts as a sound barrier, reducing outside noise and creating a more peaceful living environment.
  • Experienced Professionals: Our team of skilled technicians has years of experience, ensuring your project is completed efficiently and to the highest standards.

Our Attic Insulation Process

We begin by thoroughly inspecting your attic to assess your current insulation levels and identify any areas that need attention.

Based on our findings, we recommend the best insulation solution to meet your needs and budget.

Before installation, we carefully prepare your attic, ensuring it is clean, dry, and ready for the new insulation.

Our skilled technicians install your chosen insulation material using industry-best practices, paying close attention to detail to ensure optimal coverage and performance.

We take pride in leaving your home as clean as we found it, removing debris, and responsibly disposing of old insulation materials.


Pipe Lagging

Pipe lagging is the insulation wrapped around pipes to minimise heat loss, prevent freezing, and control condensation. It is an essential aspect of energy efficiency and building maintenance.

Here are some key points about pipe lagging for attics:

  • Energy efficiency: Pipe lagging helps to reduce heat loss from hot water pipes, thus improving energy efficiency and reducing heating costs.
  • Freeze protection: In cold weather, uninsulated pipes risk freezing, which can lead to pipe bursts and water damage. Pipe lagging helps to prevent this issue.
  • Condensation control: When cold water pipes are exposed to warm, humid air, condensation can occur, leading to dampness and potential mould growth. Pipe lagging helps to prevent this by keeping the pipe surface temperature above the dew point.
  • Materials: Pipe lagging is typically made from polyethene foam, mineral wool, or elastomeric foam. The choice of material depends on factors such as the pipe temperature, location, and environmental conditions.


Roof Insulation

Roof or rafter insulation involves placing insulation material directly under the roof between the rafters.

This type of insulation is typically used when the attic is converted into a living space or when there is no attic at all (e.g., in a vaulted ceiling).

Roof insulation helps with energy efficiency and provides better temperature control and comfort for the living space directly beneath the roof.

Installing roof insulation is more complex and often more expensive than attic insulation, as it requires working around the roof structure and ensuring proper ventilation to prevent moisture buildup.

Common materials used for roof insulation include rigid foam boards, spray foam, and mineral wool.


Attic Insulation Grants

We are here to advise you on the best financial path for insulating your home

In Ireland, several grants are available for attic insulation to help homeowners improve their home’s energy efficiency. These grants are provided by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) under the Better Energy Homes Scheme. As of 2021, the available grants for attic insulation are:

Attic Insulation: The grant amount depends on the property type and ranges from €800 to €1,500.

To be eligible for these grants, your home must have been built and occupied before 2006. The insulation materials and installation must also meet the required standards set by the SEAI.

The lifespan of attic insulation can vary depending on the type of insulation used, the environmental conditions, and the installation quality. When left untouched it can last as long as the building.

Factors that can affect the lifespan of attic insulation include:

  • Moisture: Insulation exposed to moisture from leaks or high humidity can degrade faster. Mold and mildew growth can also be a concern.
  • Pests: Rodents and insects can damage insulation, reducing its effectiveness and lifespan.
  • Compression and Disturbance: Insulation that is compressed or disturbed (e.g., by walking on it or storing items on it) can lose its insulating properties over time.
  • Installation Quality: Proper installation is crucial for the longevity of insulation. Poorly installed insulation can lead to gaps, compression, and reduced effectiveness.
