Wood burning fires leaving insulation neglected

An increase in the number of fashionable wood-burning stoves and open fires being installed or re-fitted may have seen a reduction in the numbers of households installing insulation.

While wood-burning stoves may help to keep a property warm, they do not offer the same kind of energy efficient properties that loft or cavity wall insulation offers.

The feature might offer an aesthetically pleasing and cosy solution to household warmth, but insulation has more benefits over the long term, including the reduction of heat escaping from a property and a reduction in carbon emissions. Furthermore, the technology allows households to save money on future energy bills.

If you look to install insulation in your own property, make sure you stay safe while making these additions. Consider certain types of personal protection equipment to protect you from harm whilst in the loft, for example. A hard-hat in this instance may prevent you from banging your head on roofing beams.
