Traditionally, loft insulation was installed to a depth of 100mm, but current building regulations state that 270mm is required. Even if you have some insulation in your loft already, it may not meet current standards so it’s worth checking that you’ve got enough insulation to get the maximum saving.
Loft insulation is easy and quick to install using rolls of mineral wool insulation. The first layer is laid between the joists – the horizontal beams that make up the ‘floor’ of the loft – then another layer is cross-laid at right angles to cover the joists and make the insulation up to the required depth.
