Insulation

Cavity Wall Installation
Up to 35% of all heat loss in your home is lost through the walls. Most modern homes are built by constructing masonry walls with an air-gap, or “cavity”, of at least 50mm in between. Insulating this cavity is one of the best ways to reduce the amount of energy you need to heat your home.
How does it work?
Most modern homes are constructed with an ‘air-gap’ or cavity walls, and filling this with insulating material can significantly reduce heat loss. However, not all homes are constructed in this way, and as such, your home will need to be surveyed to make sure it is suitable first.
Once this has been confirmed, our insulation team will drill a series of small holes into the outside wall of your property. Then, they will insert insulating material into the cavity using specialist equipment.
The insulating material can be made from a variety of different materials, but is usually made from recycled granulated mineral wool fibre or polystyrene beads. In effect, this creates a blanket effect that will prevent heat escaping.
This means that you use less energy to keep your home warm, helping you save money on your bills

Loft Insulation
Loft Insulation is a very effective way of preventing excessive heat loss from your property. 25% of the energy used to heat the building is lost through the roof, so it’s easy to see why insulating the rafters can be so effective at reducing energy bills.
Loft Insulation is a quick, cheap way to improve the energy efficiency of your home, so get in contact today to discuss your requirements.
How does it work?
Traditionally, loft insulation is made from fibreglass, a substance that isn’t necessarily environmentally friendly. Here at Shropshire Green Energy Centre, we pride ourselves on the use of modern insulation materials, very different from the traditional. Our loft insulation material is a roll of environmentally friendly mineral fibres that is laid in your loft. Shropshire Green Energy Centre loft insulation installers lay one layer in between the joists, and another layer length ways across the joists.
This means that the insulation is up to building regulation standards, and will last indefinitely, so you don’t have to change it every few years.
There are many benefits to installing loft insulation. Not only will it cut your energy bills and make your home easier to heat, it will lengthen the life of your boiler, by creating a consistent living environment. It can also improve the energy rating of your home.
Why have it?
Loft insulation is a quick and relatively cheap way for you to improve the energy efficiency of your home. Not only will it lead to a reduction in your energy bills it will also help to prolong the life of your boiler by creating a consistent, more comfortable living environment in your home. Loft Insulation will also improve the energy rating of your home.
How much does it cost?
The cost of loft insulation varies depending on your property and on the results of your property survey.Government backed Loft Insulation grants are also available through the ECO scheme. The funding available depends on the amount of carbon emission savings predicted for after the insulation has taken place. 
So whether you want to add new loft insulation to your building or just top up your existing insulation, get in contact with us today and find out how we can help you.
