Blame it on the nature of heat flow or blame it on colder climate – but the problem will not be sorted out until you focus on your attic or loft. Heat is prone to shift to colder regions from warmer regions and during winter months, heat produced inside house tends to escape out of the house through attic. But, once you properly insulate your attic area by sealing gaps around the area you may stop heat migrate from your house to outside. At the same time, you can block entry of cold air into your house – by adopting loft insulation method. Therefore, you are less required to switch on your air conditioner or heater.

How to choose loft insulation materials and check efficacy of the method?

In order to know that your loft insulation is working just right it is imperative to know rating system first. Insulation is indicated with R-value which marks heat resistance of the materials use for insulation. So, higher the insulation materials have R-value, higher heat resistance capacity they have and have ability to obstruct heat flow.

Another important task you should not omit to ensure effectiveness of loft insulation and is it research on options available in materials. This is the best way to fathom which materials suit to your requisition. Take account of thickness, density of insulation materials. Fibreglass blankets or batt having R-value of around 3 per inch are most commonly used materials for loft insulation.

The third step of ensuring the fitted loft insulation is meeting the purpose is to check for ventilation around the attic, freezing around water pipes and tanks and air flow in that area. Make sure you fit insulation material over attic of your living area leaving soffit vents area clear for sufficient air circulation.

Before applying fibreglass loft insulation materials it is essential to measure thickness of insulation and then find out recent R-value of the materials used based on the thickness. While in the northern regions, the loft insulation must show an R-value of 39, though additional topping of insulation enhance efficiency of buildings.
