Heat loss is where heat escapes from inside the building to outside, typically through the roof, walls, windows and floor. Knowing the heat loss helps determining the most efficient heating system and ensuring that your property is adequately heated.
When looking at heated floors, knowing the heat loss of your room or home will tell you if underfloor heating will be enough to heat your room or home properly. If the heat loss is low, it is highly likely that floor heating will be enough. But if the heat loss is high, you may need to look at ways to reduce heat loss to ensure efficient performance of the system. Heat loss will also validate whether the building meets regulatory approval and, more significantly, determine the energy requirements and running costs of your home.
If your insulation is more than 15 years old, there is a good chance that gaps and drafts have developed. Topping up with new insulation will keep your home warmer in winter, cooler in summer and save you money on your heating and cooling costs. This can easily be determind through our thermal assessment.
Cavity wall insulation is used to reduce heat loss through a cavity wall by filling the air space with material that inhibits heat transfer.
