Adding Floor insulation
If you are adding extra insulation to your floors, the work will need to comply with the relevant building regulations for where you live. Your installer will normally arrange this for you, but if you are doing it yourself, it is your responsibility to comply. For further information, and for regulations in Northern Ireland and Scotland, contact your local Building Control Office before starting work.
If you are looking for someone to insulate your floor, Energy Saving Trust recommends you look for an installer who is a member of the National Insulation Association.
We can also assist with contact information for local installers so please contact us with any enquiry you have.
