Floorboards, especially in older properties, are common culprits for draughty homes and energy wastage. Insulating the floor is a very simple and effective way to fix this problem as it retains warmth and reduces the cost of energy usage.
By adding underfloor insulation under the floorboards, you will be reducing the amount of heat escaping through the floor and into the ground. It also acts as a barrier helping to keep out the draughts from coming up through the floorboards. An average property will lose 15% of its heat through the floor.
At Eco Target, we specialise in suspended floor insulation in not just the traditional method of installation but are also trained and qualified installers of the Q-bot innovative method. This uses robots to spray foam insulation under your floorboards and is a much more effective, sustainable and instant way to stop heat from escaping. The Q-bot technology doesn’t only allow us to install the insulation but can also help us spot and prevent potential hidden problems that can affect your property now and in the future.
During the assessment of your property, we will examine the floor and determine the ideal access and installation method for minimal disruption. Using an air vent calculator tool, we will assess the existing ventilation within the floor area and install additional ventilation bricks where necessary. This ensures your property meets the latest government building standards.
Underfloor insulation is a fabric measure and is one of the primary and most cost-effective ways of saving heat loss within your home. A typical semi-detached house would look to save around £180 in annual bills, which could be better spent elsewhere. And because making energy-saving improvements also means helping to save the environment, it benefits you and your family in multiple ways since it leads to a better quality of life all around.
Underfloor heating is a type of heating system in which warm water is circulated through pipes laid underneath the floor. This heats the floor and radiates warmth into the room, providing a more consistent and efficient heating experience.
Underfloor heating systems typically consist of a series of pipes that are laid out in a pattern underneath the floor. These pipes are connected to a heat source, such as a boiler, and warm water is circulated through the pipes to heat the floor. The heat then radiates into the room, warming the space.
There are two main types of underfloor heating systems: wet systems and dry systems. Wet systems involve circulating warm water through pipes, while dry systems use electric cables or mats to heat the floor.
Underfloor heating provides a more consistent and efficient heating experience, as the heat radiates up from the floor rather than being blown around by a traditional heating system. It can also be more energy-efficient, as it heats the room more evenly and can be controlled more precisely. Additionally, it can free up space by eliminating the need for radiators.
