Underfloor Insulation Oldham

and Spray Foam Insulation Oldham

Serving in Oldham

Nestled amidst the Pennines, Oldham is home to over 230,000 people, and like many towns in the north of England, it came to prominence in the 18th and 19th centuries with the boom of the cotton industry. The town took full advantage of the cotton trade explosion that brought both wealth and international acclaim to the area and became one of the most important centres of cotton and textiles in England.

With the decline of the textile industry in the mid-20th century, Oldham lost a lot of its economic power, and today is more of a residential town.

It is still very distinguishable as a former boomtown of the Industrial Revolution, with the surviving cotton mills and other industrial buildings still standing, drawing great architectural interest even today.

Due to its historical industrial involvement, many of Oldham’s houses date back to the 19th century. As such, they can often suffer from recurring draught and damp problems, as well as energy inefficiencies due to heat loss.

Spray foam underfloor insulation Oldham

For many houses built before the 1970s, suspended timber flooring was a common feature. This method creates a void between the floor and the ground on which the house is built, where air can circulate and cause draughts and heat loss, as well as poor insulation from the sound. This leads to increased heating costs, to the sum of hundreds of pounds a year.

One of the most effective ways to combat such issues is through the installation of spray foam underfloor insulation, a convenient, effective and efficient solution for many properties, with minimal disruption and multiple benefits. As spray foam insulation Oldham specialists, Green Horizon Energy are skilled in the assessment and installation of spray foam insulation for all types of properties across the region and use only Icynene spray foam solutions.

Installation is done via a spray method, where a specialist liquid is sprayed onto the desired area, which then solidifies and expands on contact with surfaces. This means it completely fills any gaps, no matter how small, creating maximum coverage that creates an airtight seal, protecting the underfloor area and helps to prevent excess heat loss. It also acts as a moisture barrier and helps with noise reduction, without compromising any wiring, plumbing or electrical appliances in the area.

Loft Insulation Oldham

A universally popular home improvement technique to prevent excessive heat loss and improve energy efficiencies is loft insulation.

Many of Oldham’s properties could benefit from loft insulation, especially those properties that are older and less energy efficient or those with higher energy usage, such as residencies with large family occupancy or house shares.

The most effective loft insulation in Oldham is achieved by filling both the rafters in the roof and the space between the beams. Due to the difficult angles most pitched roofs lie at, the best way to ensure maximum coverage and minimal disruption is to use spray foam insulation for loft spaces. As it expands on impact, it fills the entire area completely, creating an airtight seal that prevents heat loss, moisture damage and noise travel.

Spray roof insulation Oldham

Spray foam roof insulation is an incredibly effective solution for homes that wish to improve their energy efficiency and enjoy a warmer environment, as heat loss via the roof can be responsible for as much as 25% of a property’s energy loss.

Because of the application method by which spray foam insulation is installed, and how it expands on surface contact, accuracy is guaranteed and more expansive coverage is achieved than other insulation types, so no gap, nook or cranny is left untreated. This created an airtight seal, preventing heat loss, and helping to also improve the air quality, reducing pests and bacteria in the air.

Spray roof insulation in Oldham properties can also help protect against water and damp issues, which can cause serious problems, 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.
