Home Insulation Ideas To Help Keep Your Home Warmer For Longer
It’s coming towards that time of year again, where you need to wrap up in a hat, gloves and scarf just to open the door to the postman, because baby it’s cold outside🎵. As you close the door and walk back inside, you start to uncomfortably wonder, “is it colder in here than outside?”
“As recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO), UK households should have a room temperature in winter of around 18°C”
So, if you’re feeling chilly inside your home, it’s time to do something about it!
We’ve put together a list of 6 ways that you can stay warm and cosy, within your home, this winter (and every winter to follow!) using Home Insulation.
1. DIY Insulation Kits
DIY Home Insulation Kits are a fantastic way for you to get creative with Insulation.
Be aware, when insulating your conservatory it is extremely important that its done absolutely correctly! If not this could lead to more problems than before! That is why we recommend letting the experts carry out your installation and receive your 10 year guarantee included with every installation of ConservaHeat.
What makes these kits so simple and easy is that they contain everything you’ll need for your install, and they have installation guides/videos available for all applications.
2. The ConservaHeat Conservatory Roof Insulation System
Your Conservatory is the least efficient room in your home if the roof is un insulated with up to 98% of the heat produced in your conservatory instantly being lost through the glass or polycarbonate sheets in the ceiling.
The Conservaheat System is the ONLY Insulation System on the market designed specifically for use on Conservatory Roofs. This highly reflective, high performing Multifoil Insulation solution is exclusive to Conservatory Insulations, meaning you’ll not find it available anywhere else. Boasting true aluminium outer layers and a built in vapour control layer means you will get the best performing solution for your Conservatory Ceiling.
The Conservaheat System creates a thermal barrier between you and the great outdoors.
If your conservatory roof panels are glass a layer of SilverFrost will be added prior to the insulation blanket being installed.
It helps to keep your Conservatory 𝗪𝗮𝗿𝗺𝗲𝗿 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗪𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿, by reflecting heat back inside your Conservatory, rather than it evaporating through an uninsulated roof. And it helps to keep your Conservatory 𝗖𝗼𝗼𝗹𝗲𝗿 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗦𝘂𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗿, by reflecting away the Sun’s UV rays, which prevents your Conservatory absorbing excessive amounts of Solar heat. It also contains a 𝗕𝘂𝗶𝗹𝘁-𝗶𝗻 𝗩𝗮𝗽𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗼𝗹 𝗟𝗮𝘆𝗲𝗿 which results in less chance of Condensation.
ConservaHeat is usually installed within 1 day and comes with a 10 year guarantee included with every professional installation.
