Underfloor Insulation in York

Underfloor Insulation in York

Without underfloor insulation the temperature on the surface of your floor will be close to the temperature under your floor. Insulation makes the temperature on the surface of your floor the same as the inside temperature of your home. In a nutshell, it comes down to affordable comfort. At Direct Energy Efficiency Solution Ltd, we offer underfloor insulation in York and throughout the surrounding areas.

Insulate to Remove Drafts

Older homes are more likely to have suspended timber floors. Timber floors can be insulated by lifting the floorboards and laying mineral wool insulation supported by netting between the joists. Many homes – especially newer ones – will have a ground floor made of solid concrete. There are also many benefits of installing underfloor insulation to your property: You could save 10% on your fuel bills, If you qualify, it could be free. It is a cost effective and energy efficient way to make your home more comfortable all year round. By saving energy in the home, you are not only helping yourself, you are also helping the planet, whilst making your home more cosy.

Reasons for Underfloor Insulation

Apart from comfort, there are several other reasons for installing effective underfloor insulation:


  • A thoroughly insulated home will be more thermally efficient – meaning it will be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
  • Your home will retain its ‘conditioned air’ for much longer, meaning that your heating and cooling systems will achieve the set temperature
    much sooner and will maintain that temperature for much longer.
  • Retained conditioned air translates directly to lower energy bills – around 20% lower. However, that does not take into account the fact that you are also more likely to turn down the thermostat because you will feel much more comfortable.
  • Gas heated homes will experience quite a big jump in heating costs this winter due to the world gas parity pricing issues being experienced.
  • Any home owner looking to get off grid definitely needs to ensure they have minimised heat flow through the building elements.
  • Your home will be much quieter with underfloor insulation in place.
