Underfloor Insulation Stockport

and Spray Foam Insulation Stockport

Serving in Stockport

Rising to international fame in the 1800s. Stockport was the home of the nation’s hatting industry, producing over 6 million hats a year for customers around the world.

Its rich history is entrenched in its architecture; the borough is home to over 380 listed buildings, six ancient monuments and one of the most iconic viaducts in the UK, built-in 1840, a predominant landmark of the region that has featured in many LS Lowry paintings. Its 27 brick arches carry the mainline railway from Manchester to the South.

Renowned for its architecture, it also has a booming gastronomy scene, a popular food/drink market every month, excellent commuter links and some stunning scenery all within a stone’s throw of the centre, making Stockport a popular place to live and work.

The region has almost 300,000 residents, with almost 122,000 households, making it one of the largest towns in the UK. Add to this a large number of commercial properties throughout the borough, and you have an extremely varied mix of buildings and properties, some dating back to as early as the 1500s!

Spray foam insulation Stockport

The properties may have been built to stand the test of time, but most are not particularly energy-efficient, costing their owners and residents hundreds of pounds a year in lost energy costs, as well as upping the carbon emissions that contribute to climate change.

Many properties will have voids beneath the floors and within the walls in which air can circulate, causing drafts and heat loss from a property, as well as causing the sound to travel more intensely.

As spray foam insulation Stockport specialists, Green Horizon Energy are experts in assessing and installing superior spray foam insulation for all types of properties across the region, commercial or residential.

We only use the most advanced products and technologies, including Icynene spray foam insulation, which is superior to other insulation materials due to its application method and composition. Expanding on impact with surfaces, it grows to 100 times its size, filling every nook and cranny for maximum coverage and creating an airtight seal. The result is significantly better heat retention and noise reduction, and it also creates an effective moisture barrier, helping prevent damp and condensation.

Spray foam underfloor insulation Stockport

Due to the age of many of Stockport’s properties, many will not have effective insulation that complies with modern standards – up to 40% of the heat loss suffered by Stockport properties is via their doors, windows and floor. This costs hundreds of pounds a year in wasted heating costs but also increases the CO2 emissions from the properties.

Spray foam underfloor insulation for Stockport can help significantly reduce heat loss issues, being an extremely effective solution for plugging the gaps where heat escapes, with minimal disruption and multiple other benefits to the property, including noise reduction and being a barrier to moisture.

The insulation is installed in a very convenient way, via a spray method, where the specialist liquid substance solidifies and expands on impact with surfaces, filling even the tiniest of gaps and creating an airtight seal. This helps protect the underfloor area, preventing heat loss, without affecting any wiring, plumbing or electrical appliances in the area.

Loft Insulation Stockport

A popular measure to take when improving the energy efficiency of a property is to install loft insulation, which can help reduce heat loss and save on the cost of heating.

The biggest benefits from loft insulation are seen when both the rafters in the roof and voids between the beams are insulated.

Often, because of the angle of a roof, the most effective form of insulation is spray foam, as it expands on impact to fill the whole area, even the tiniest gaps, with foam that solidifies on impact and creates an airtight seal, preventing heat loss. It is also convenient to install and doesn’t need boarding to be removed.

Spray roof insulation Stockport

Spray foam roof insulation is an extremely efficient and effective treatment for properties that can improve their energy efficiency, preventing heat loss from the roof, which is responsible for up to 25% of heat loss in a property, as heat rises, naturally.

The application method by which spray roof insulation is installed guarantees accuracy, and results in greater surface area coverage than other roof insulation, such as rock wool, as it leaves no hole, gap or crevice untouched, due to its expansion on impact. The airtight seal it creates helps stop excessive heat loss, but also improves air quality, as it prevents pests and bacteria from forming.

Spray roof insulation in Stockport properties can also help protect properties against any water and damp issues.

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.
