Underfloor Insulation Macclesfield

and Spray Foam Insulation Macclesfield

Serving in Macclesfield

Macclesfield often features as one of the best places to live in the UK, with a survey in recent years naming it the happiest place to live in England.

Its bustling town centre and vibrant nightlife make for a good combination, and its fantastic transport links to both Manchester and the South (it’s on the Euston train line), as well as the many historic places of interest on its doorstep and glorious countryside, makes Macclesfield an ideal location to work and play.

A lot of the property in Macclesfield dates back to the 1800s, where it was at the centre of the booming silk industry (from which the infamous Silk Road gets its name), and as such was built to last, with magnificent external facades and typical Victorian features.

However, a lot of the older properties in the area will suffer from inefficiencies when it comes to heating, due to their age, which will cost residents hundreds of pounds a year in lost energy and will add to the carbon emissions of the area, which is bad news for the environment.

Spray foam insulation Macclesfield

A lot of Victorian properties, and even those up to the 1970s, will often have voids beneath the floors and within walls, where air can circulate that causes drafts within the property, but also significant heat loss.

As spray foam insulation Macclesfield specialists, Green Horizon Energy can expertly assess a property’s insulation needs and install superior insulation in the form of spray foam by Icynene, which is suitable for all types of buildings across the area, be residential or commercial.

Icynene spray foam insulation is superior to other insulation materials and methods, due to its application and composition. It expands on impact with all surfaces, and because it grows to 100 times its size, it is able to fill every gap, no matter how small, for maximum coverage, creating an airtight seal that is significantly better at retaining heat and reducing noise than other insulation methods. It also creates an effective moisture barrier, helping prevent damp and condensation, which can be a common feature of older properties.

Spray foam underfloor insulation Macclesfield

Many of Macclesfield’s properties will be lacking effective insulation that meets modern requirements. Up to 40% of any heat loss suffered by Macclesfield properties will be because of heat escaping via doors, windows and through the floor.

Not only is this uncomfortable for residents if there is a draft, but it also costs hundreds of pounds a year in wasted heating costs.

Spray foam underfloor insulation for Macclesfield can effectively reduce heat loss from properties and is an extremely effective solution for blocking any gap, no matter how small, where heat can escape. It can also be installed with minimal disruption and offers many other benefits to a property, including noise reduction and being a barrier to dampness.

Installed via a spray method, a specialist liquid substance expands and solidifies on impact with surfaces, filling every nook and cranny, creating an airtight seal. This helps protect voids in floors and also prevents heat loss, without affecting any wiring, plumbing or electrical appliances in the area.

Loft Insulation Macclesfield

Loft insulation is one of the most popular improvements to make to the energy efficiency of a property, as many are aware of just how much heat can escape through the loft and roof.

To be most effective, loft insulation should be installed in the roof rafters and the voids between the beams. However, because roof angles are often tricky, spray foam is much more effective at blocking all gaps where heat can escape than other forms of insulation, due to its expansion on impact.

As the foam solidifies on impact also, it creates an airtight seal that works to prevent heat loss, and its application method means boarding doesn’t need to be removed to install, making it a very convenient option.

Spray roof insulation Macclesfield

For properties that need to improve their energy efficiency and heat retention, spray foam roof insulation is very effective and efficient, as it can help prevent up to 25% of a property’s heat loss.

Spray foam insulation is installed in such a way that guarantees the accuracy of application and covers a greater area than other roof insulation, such as rock wool. It leaves no gaps untouched, as it expands on surface impact, filling even the tiniest holes. This also creates an airtight seal that stops heat loss and also helps improve air quality.

Spray roof insulation in Macclesfield properties can also help protect many properties against any moisture and damp issues, a common problem in older properties.

What are the key benefits of Spray Foam Insulation?

Cost saving

Due to the nature of Icynene products, the foam, once applied, creates an air seal within a property, helping to prevent heat loss. This will reduce the amount of heat needed to fill the building, in turn saving money year after year.

Healthier environment

Airborne pollutants, including dirt and dust, are often the trigger of allergies and can contribute to lower air quality. Icynene will help to shield property from such aggravators, as the foam will expand to create an internal seal, improving the quality of the air in the property, helping to alleviate common causes of irritation.

25 year manufacturer's warranty

Green Horizon Energy Solutions is one of only a handful of fully accredited, official contractors of Icynene in the UK, meaning all of our technicians are fully licensed installers. As such, we are able to offer as standard a 25-year warranty on the product for all installs.

Protection from damp, mould and pests

Icynene open cell spray foam is engineered in such a way that it does not retain water; instead it allows water vapour to diffuse through the insulation and dissipate from the building’s envelope, keeping out moisture from the internal structure which is a big cause of damp and mould. It is also breathable, which helps to prevent condensation. It also helps to deter pests such as mice, rats, termites, mites from entering a property, as once the product solidifies, these pests will find it difficult to gain entry or make nests.

Speed and accuracy of insulation

Icynene Spray Foam Insulation offer a variety of products for different applications, depending on the project’s needs. Each has its own unique characteristics, but can all be installed quickly and effectively, more so than traditional insulation methods, meaning minimum downtime for any business.

Reduced noise

Icynene products deliver high levels of sound insulation from inside and outside a property by virtually eliminating airborne sounds such as music, telephones, conversations and all mid to high range frequency noise. It is especially effective for those properties situated on a busy road to help eliminate traffic noise and can make huge positive differences to living spaces prone to external noise.

No draughts

Air leakage can be responsible for up to half of a property’s energy loss. The air-seal created by applying Icynene to the internal structure of a building means no gaps exist from which a draught can appear; this helps maintain a more consistent internal temperature, minimises heat loss and reduces waste, creating an efficient and comfortable living or working space.

Lower carbon footprint

As Icynene helps to reduce heat loss from a property, much less energy is needed to help keep a comfortable temperature throughout, thereby reducing a property’s carbon footprint on the environment.

Safe and certified

Icynene is non-toxic and is certified by the BBA, ETA and IAB.
