The importance of a Insulated Loft Hatch

It is important to see our loft hatch cushion reviews on how well we as the loft hatch insulation company provide loft door insulation. By attaching foam board to the loft hatch is one way to insulate the loft hatch but it is not the best way. This method simply uses loft insulation materials or roof hatch insulation to self-fabricate a solution. An alternative to self-fabrication is to buy and replace existing loft hatch with an insulated loft hatch. These are expensive especially if a carpenter is needed to make significant changes to the ceiling superstructure.

A better and much more cost effective way to provide insulation for the loft door is to buy and fit our loft trap door insulation pad. This works and works very well and is really good cost effective way of keeping your home warm. if you have ever wondered how to insulate a wooden door loft hatch then that task is made very easy by fitting our new product.

Increasingly it is becoming more known that air tightness is critical for home warmth. Heat loss is indiscriminate and can and will vent away through any small gaps in either insulation or construction layers. Have you ever thought about the gaps and areas under your window sills. If these have not been insulated properly – there is a very good chance that they have not then these gaps will allow heat to escape. This is just one area where heat can escape. The reality being that heat will escape from anywhere and everywhere.

Have you ever considered engaging with a professional that has a heat thermal camera?

Such simple technology quickly identifies where heat is being lost. Unsurprisingly the loft hatch is a major culprit for heat loss. Large volumes of heat vent and belch away through the loft hatch. This is mainly due to two reasons i) heat rises and ii) there must be gaps in the insulation layers at the loft hatch as the hatch needs to open and close. Ensure that there are no gaps at the insulation layers (thermal bridging) so that heat remains within the home. Use any method to reduce draughts and hot air leakage. Place curtains in front of external doors. These can be DIY made  and should be double layered for extra thermal performance. Also make door draught excluders especially for old or older double glazed window or doors. Over time these will leak. The seals perish and let warm air out and sometimes water in. don’t throw away old duvets. These can easily be converted into draught or insulation products.

It makes sense to keep your home properly insulated especially at the loft hatch. A well-sealed loft hatch will result in a warmer home.
