Floor Insulation

by Michael Boyle on June 12, 2019

The energy waste that occurs through your flooring can be significant, especially if living in a bungalow or detached house.

There are a range of floor insulation options for both new builds and retro-fitting which we can help you with at Donegal Town Hardware.

Floor Insulation with Donegal Town Hardware

These include rigid insulation slabs from Kingspanand Quinn-therm for concrete floors; and glass fibre, mineral wool quilts, multi-foil quilts from Knauf, Rockwool and Superquilt, for laying underneath floorboards for suspended timber flooring.

Why go with floor insulation?

Floor insulation is often the ‘missing link’ when it comes to keeping all the warmth in your home. Attic insulation and wall insulation gets priority in most cases, as heat losses there tend to be greater than through the floor, but you cannot afford to forget about floor insulation altogether.

Un-insulated flooring will result in expensive heat escaping from your home and so floor insulation is essential if you want full value for money from your spend on heating oil, solid fuel, or whatever other material you use.

If you are installing an under floor heating system, insulation is essential, as your heating source, the under floor heating pipes, are in direct contact with the floor, resulting in your expensive heat been lost directly into the ground.

Our experts in store will explain all the features and benefits of our floor insulation materials to you, and help you choose the best one for your home.
