Underfloor Insulation Manchester

and Spray Foam Insulation Manchester

Serving in Manchester

Manchester often gets crowned the most liveable city in the UK, and as one of the country’s oldest and most productive cities, it is responsible for the birth of the Industrial Revolution, the production of the first modern computer, built by Tom Kilburn and Freddie Williams, and is home to some of the most iconic musical talent to come out of Great Britain in the last few decades.

Greater Manchester is home to approximately 2 million people across the borough, and some 1.2millions households, many of them dating back to the 1900s. Built to last, these houses have stood the test of time, but one thing they are not is energy efficient. Even some of the more modern builds have been the victim of substandard or hazardous insulation materials, meaning that they too are inefficient when it comes to energy ratings.

Spray foam insulation Manchester

Many houses across Greater Manchester were built with ground floor suspended timber flooring, resulting in a void between the base of the property and the ground, causing drafts and heat loss. As well as this, cavity walls can be a culprit of energy inefficiencies, as well as uninsulated roofing.

As spray foam insulation Manchester specialists, Green Horizon Energy is expertly equipped to deal with all types of insulation requirements across multiple different properties in the region, which can save homeowners and residents hundreds of pounds a year on their heating bills.

Spray foam insulation by Icynene is superior to many other types of insulation options as it is a water-blown spray foam, which means it expands upon contact with surfaces, completely filling every nook and cranny for maximum coverage and creating an airtight environment. This results in a significant improvement in heat loss, as well as providing an effective moisture barrier and reducing noise pollution.

Spray foam underfloor insulation Manchester

Manchester’s uninsulated properties lose approximately 40% of their heat from their doors, windows and through the floor, costing inhabitants hundreds of pounds a year in heating costs, and contributing to increased CO2 emissions.

Spray foam underfloor insulation in Manchester properties is an effective way to combat excessive heat loss in a property and is a more convenient option than many other types of insulation due to the efficient installation method.

Using a spray method, the liquid substance solidifies on impact with surfaces almost immediately, expanding to fill any gap and creating an airtight seal, protecting your underfloor area and preventing excessive heat loss. Due to the nature of the materials used and the installation method, it is completely safe and practical for use around wiring, plumbing and electrical appliances.

Loft insulation Manchester

Loft insulation for Manchester properties is a popular home improvement to help reduce energy costs and improve carbon emissions, especially in older properties or those with high energy usages, such as large families or house shares.

For most properties and housing needs, insulating both the roof and the floor of the loft is most beneficial. Due to the shape of most roof areas, the most effective way to insulate the space is to use a spray foam method, which expands into the entire space and solidifies on impact, creating an airtight seal but also causing minimal disruption to install.

Spray roof insulation Manchester

Using spray foam insulation is a cost-effective, convenient and efficient solution to help combat heat loss via a roof void – which can be responsible for up to 25% of energy loss in a home.

The spray application method allows for more accurate and expansive coverage than other forms of insulation options, such as rock wool, as it expands to fill every crevice, gap and void in a loft to ensure an airtight seal. This prevents heat escaping after installation and also reduces pests and bacteria in the air, creating a better air quality with a seal against pollutants and allergen entry.

Spray roof insulation in Manchester properties can also provide an optimum moisture defence, protecting against water entry and damp issues, which can be a significant problem, especially 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.
