Five reasons you should install loft insulation and flooring in your Scotland home

Homeowners can often forget lofts in their houses. As a result, they are designated as cold dark places where you only go if you need to or where you throw stuff and forget about it.

At Smart-Loft Storage Solutions, we see it differently.

Smart-Loft Storage Solutions have converted hundreds of cold, dark empty spaces into usable areas that give people loads of storage space and, if insulated, can save you lots of money on your energy bills.

Here are our five best reasons to love your loft by installing loft insulation and flooring.

1 – Create storage space and declutter your home.
Flooring your loft and installing loft access ladders creates space to store stuff you don’t need all the time – this means more storage space, less clutter and easy access to the things you need when you need them. Loft flooring is the perfect solution if you need more storage space in your home.

2 – Reduce heat loss.
Loft insulation reduces heat loss through your roof. A loft with no insulation can lose 30 per cent of the heat you generate in your home. So, you’re paying to heat the sky, which isn’t too good for the environment.

3 – Save money on your energy costs.
Installing loft insulation saves energy costs and essentially pays for itself in time. You can make significant savings in Scotland, where we suffer long cold winters.

4 – Reduce your carbon footprint.
Less heat escaping through your roof is great for our planet and reduces your carbon footprint, which is good for our wonderful world – and your wallet.

5 – Increase the value of your home and sell it more easily (when you want to)!
Installing loft insulation will boost your home’s energy performance rating. It’s called an EPC rating (energy performance certificate). Insulating your loft space increases the EPC rating, which affects its saleability and value.
