Loft Insulation

In an uninsulated home, 25%* of the heat is lost through the roof. Insulating your loft is a great way to keep warmth inside your home, save energy and reduce heating bills. Loft insulation installed by Evolve is the best quality and will last for over 40 years with no loss of efficiency.

You can expect to save around £285* per year on your energy bill (based on a gas-heated semi-detached home) rising to £475* per year (based on a gas-heated detached home).

Prevent excess heat loss

Our team will professionally install loft insulation following best-practice standards: the first layer is laid between the joists, followed by a second layer at right angles to cover the joists and make the insulation up to the required depth of 270mm.

You can expect to save around £285* per year on your energy bill (based on a gas-heated semi-detached home) rising to £475* per year (based on a gas-heated detached home).

Costs & funding

As an accredited installer, we have access to various pots of funding that can make insulation FREE or very low-cost for you. The funding comes from places such as energy companies, local authorities, and housing associations.

For example, currently the Great British Insulation Scheme (GBIS) means many millions of UK homes qualify for FREE loft or cavity wall insulation…

Homes should have their loft space insulated to ensure heat you are paying for is not escaping through the loft space to outside, raising your heating bills and making your home more expensive to heat than it needs to be.

Plus, it dramatically improves your home’s energy efficiency which helps the environment.
