You need roof insulation if you have a converted loft or attic room. Without, you will most likely have freezing cold winters and very hot summer days in your converted roof space. Moreover, Room in Roof insulation insulates all of the space including between the rafters leaving your room a comfortable temperature. Crucially, this can potentially save up to 30% on your heating bills* too. Attic room insulation work can normally be completed within a day. Best of all, there is minimal mess or disruption so it’s an easy way to improve home energy efficiency.
Room in roof explained…
A ‘room-in-roof’ is part of the house built into what would normally be the roof or loft space. It will usually have sloping ceilings visible in the rooms. However, if there are full-width dormer windows, you may not see any internal sloping ceilings. It may be a converted roof space such as a loft or attic room conversion, or an original part of the design.
There isn’t one. ECO (The Energy Company Obligation) is a government-backed energy efficiency programme. It provides support for energy efficiency measures, such as loft and wall insulation. The ECO measures are free and are ultimately paid for by the larger utility companies. Therefore, there is no hidden catch and no cost to you the owner/occupier.
