What material do you install?
We use glass fibre insulation, which stops the heating from escaping through your roof.
Do I need to make any preparation for the installation?
The installers need good access to the loft so you may need to remove items stored in the loft if you have a lot of them. If you have only a few smaller objects stored then our installers can probably work around these and move them whilst fitting the material.
What is the recommended thickness?
The current regulations under the EEC programme states that a minimum 270mm of loft insulation is required.
I already have some insulation in the loft.
Any existing insulation can be left in the loft and an additional layer added to it to bring it up to the required minimum thickness. It does not matter how long the existing insulation has been in the loft it still retains its insulant value.
Cavity Wall Insulation
How long does cavity wall insulation last?
For the lifetime of the building.
How long will it take to carry out the installation?
Most properties take around 2-3 hours.
Is the cavity wall insulation guaranteed?
Yes - a Guarantee is provided by CIGA (Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency) - this is a 25-year guarantee and applies to the property, not the person, so you need to keep it safe with other documents for your property. You will need this document if you sell your house. We will apply for the Guarantee on your behalf.
What is the installation process?
A typical boiler replacement takes a day. All our installations are carried out by our experienced OFTEC registered engineers and all electrical work is carried out by our NICEIC registered electricians.
At the start of your installation, your engineer will talk you through the planned works and discuss any concerns you may have. We will put down dust sheets and take every care to ensure your home is safe and well looked after.
Having completed the installation we will commission, test and certify your new installation. We will also carefully talk you through your new boiler’s controls and how to operate it in the most efficient way. Prior to leaving we will clear-up, vacuum and leave your home as we found it. We will also leave you with our comprehensive Customer Care Pack that includes operating instructions for your boiler.
