Why insulate your room in roof?
If you have a room in roof, then this can be a great space that adds value to your home. Either as an extra bedroom, study or just a storage space, a room in roof can be extremely useful. However, by being so close to an uninsulated roof, it can be difficult to keep a room like this at a comfortable temperature. This can lead to the room in roof going to waste. If you do decide to use it, your fuel usage may rise above what you can afford.
Proper insulation can make all the difference. It is estimated that up to a quarter of the heat that leaves your house escapes through the roof. Adding insulation helps to trap that heat in and keeps the interior warm in winter, and during the summer, it will also the stop the sauna like effect of the suns rays hitting the roof and heating up the room below.
Rather than paying for heat that doesn’t stick around, room in roof insulation can reduce the rate at which heat escapes by up to 90%. During the summer, it will also the stop the sauna like effect of the suns rays hitting the roof and heating up the room below. Total annual savings may be up to £220, not to mention the value added to your house of having an extra, usable room.
