Insulation isn’t just for lofts!

Living in a Victorian house with suspended wooden floorboards can cold and draughty. Damp air moves up through the floorboards making the room hard to heat.

My research also found that you can save money (click here) on our heating bills if you insulate. In 2013 I insulated inside of our external walls and have really noticed the difference, solving our condensation problem as well (see here).

There are lots of websites showing the process for example (see here). Its a great time to check under the floorboards for anything that could be damaging your building, e.g. piles of soil, rotten joists or even water leaks.

While the floor is up, it is also a great time to add in new sockets and electrics. Need an electrician contact Leon here.
