Underfloor Insulation – Keep the heat under your feet


With winter fast approaching, your thoughts are probably turning towards how to keep your house warm, without breaking the bank. 

There are many options you could choose. If you are wanting to heat a small room, you could use a portable electric heater. Their efficiency lays in being able to heat small areas quickly, however they can be expense to run. 

If you’re looking to heat a larger area, then a portable gas heater is the way to go. Most are electric/gas hybrids that just require a power outlet to run, removing the need of a complicated installation. Also, being portable, you can move it to another room depending your needs. 

However, if you’re looking for an option to heat your entire house, you can’t go past ducted/central heating. Using a compressor (installed outside the house or in the roof), warm air is distributed throughout the house through ducted vents located in selected rooms. Temperatures can be easily controlled and monitored through a central control panel. 

Although these are great ways in which to heat your home, the most important part is being able to keep the heat in, and the best way to do that is through insulation. 

When most people think of insulation, they think of wall and ceiling insulation. Although great places to consider adding insulation, the area most commonly forgotten, and just as important, is the floor.

Expol Underfloor Insulation is designed to stop cool air creeping in, or letting heat escape, as well as being easy to install if you prefer to do it yourself. This makes it perfect for retro-fitting to an existing home. 

The concertina panels of the Expol system fit snugly between floor joists, creating a thermal barrier against the elements, ensuring you remain warm in winter and cool in summer, for life. 

So whether you are looking to fix your existing property, or are building a new home, Expol Underfloor Insulation is the perfect addition to an existing home or a new build. Find your closest stockist or contact us for more information.
