Expol Underfloor Insulation is an ideal way to stop cold drafts coming up from your floorboards, effectively keeping your feet warmer and stoping warmth from escaping your home this winter.

Carpeted floors account for approximately 15% of heat loss within you home, but raised floors with exposed floorboards lose about 22% of heat. This figure increases to approximately 30% if you also factor in air draughts in floorboards. Given than ceiling heat loss is 35%, underfloor insulation is vital if you have exposed floorboards on a suspended wooden floor.

Expol Underfloor Insulation will increase the ambient temperature of the house by preventing air draughts between floorboards, and also by creating an insulating air pocket under the floorboards, helping to trap heat in the house. The floorboards will essentially feel like room temperature and stop air draughts – a double bonus.

Placed snugly between the floor joists, Expol Underfloor Insulation will ensure your home is protected from temperature extremes. Expol Insulation is safe to install, non-allergenic, environmentally friendly (no CFCs), contains a flame retardant, and its thermal performance is not affected by ageing.
