To try and help you out and to provide you with a source of information to help tackle these queries, check out our Typical Questions Your Customer May Ask series; starting with, “How can I reduce heat loss in my home?”
The application of underfloor heating insulation helps to prevent downward heat loss, below the underfloor heating pipe you will have insulation. This, combined with edge insulation around the outer perimeter of the room, can help to really lock that heat in and prevent it from being lost through the room.
Opting for loft cavity insulation is a great way to help lock heat in. Why not pass this on to your customer? A good way to tell if you are losing heat from your roof is to check your roof on a frosty morning; if there are areas without frost, then you need to get it insulated. To reduce the amount of heat escaping through walls, the same recommendation goes; opt for wall insulation. This helps to reduce the amount of air circulating, therefore minimising heat loss.
Windows and doors are awful for allowing heat to leak out, so opting for double or triple glazing is the best way to address this issue. The air between each pane of glass helps to reduce heat loss because air is a poor conductor of heat. Also, your customer can opt for caulking material around the window and door frame to help reduce the amount of heat escaping through the gaps around them.
