1. What is loft insulation and why is it important?
Loft insulation is a method of insulating the space between the rafters in your attic or loft. It helps to reduce heat loss, lower energy bills, and make your home more comfortable.
How does loft insulation work? Loft insulation works by creating a barrier between the inside of your home and the outside. This barrier helps to trap the heat inside your home, preventing it from escaping through the roof.
2. What types of insulation materials does Eco Target use?
Eco Target primarily uses Earthwool (mineral wool) insulation materials, which is known for its durability, fire resistance, and it is made from recycled materials. They may also use other types of insulation materials, such as spray foam insulation.
3. How much does loft insulation cost?
The cost of loft insulation can vary depending on the type of insulation used and the size of the area to be insulated. However, Eco Target offers government-funded schemes that can help cover the cost of insulation for eligible homeowners and landlords.
4. How long does loft insulation last?
Loft insulation can last for many years if it is not disturbed or damaged. Eco Target may offer a guarantee on their work, so you can be sure that your insulation is protected.
5. Is Eco Target compliant with regulations?
Yes, Eco Target ensures that all the insulation works are carried out in compliance with all relevant regulations, so you can be sure that your home is safe and energy-efficient.
6. How do I know if my home needs loft insulation?

7. Is Loft Insulation expensive
The cost of loft insulation can vary depending on the type of insulation used and the size of the area to be insulated. However, in the UK, there are government-funded schemes available to help cover the cost of insulation for eligible homeowners and landlords. These schemes can significantly reduce the cost of insulation, making it more affordable for many people. Additionally, insulating your loft can save you money on your energy bills in the long run, so it may be a wise investment.
8. Is there any funding?
Yes, there is funding available for loft insulation in the UK. The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government-funded scheme that helps cover the cost of insulation for eligible homeowners and landlords. The scheme is intended to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty. Under the scheme, eligible households can receive insulation at no cost or at a heavily subsidised rate.
Additionally, the Green Homes Grant is a scheme that provides vouchers worth up to £5,000 to cover the cost of energy-efficient home improvements, including loft insulation. The scheme is intended to help homeowners and landlords to improve the energy efficiency of their properties, reducing their energy bills and carbon emissions.
It's important to note that these schemes are subject to change, and availability may vary depending on where you live and your personal circumstances. Therefore it is best to check with your energy supplier or local authorities to find out if there are any schemes available in your area, and if you are eligible.
