Underfloor Insulation Wigan

and Spray Foam Insulation Wigan

Serving in Wigan

For most people, when they think of Wigan, one of two things spring to mind. Pies, and rugby league!

As well as the perfect pie, Wigan’s proud tradition of sporting excellence is spearheaded by the Wigan Warriors, one of the most famous and successful sporting clubs in the world.

Wigan is also home to over 75% of the world’s top 25 food companies – the Wigan Heinz factory is the largest of its kind in Europe, meaning the economic infrastructure is very strong in this area.

It has always been an industrial powerhouse, and saw a dramatic economic expansion and rapid rise in population during the Industrial Revolution, like many northern towns, not least because of its coal mining.

Nestled amongst a lot of greenery, the borough of Wigan is more than 70% green and is the greenest urban borough in Britain. Home to wetland flashes that have formed naturally on old mining land, it is where visitors can see a wide range of wildlife.

This, and excellent commuter links, make Wigan a desirable place to live. But whilst its residents enjoy the local produce, sporting events and beautiful surroundings, many properties are below par when it comes to energy efficiency, mainly due to their age.

With the industrial heritage of the town stretching back hundreds of years, many inhabited houses date back to the 19th century, and are therefore often responsible for excessive heat loss, costing residents hundreds of pounds a year in wasted fuel bills.

Spray foam insulation Wigan

One of the most effective ways to protect a home against excessive heat loss, as well as other issues such as damp, condensation and air quality, is through the installation of spray foam insulation.

Green Horizon Energy are spray foam insulation WIgan specialists and can assess and install superior spray foam insulation for all types of properties across the region, commercial or residential.

Icynene is an innovative spray foam insulation product, and Green Horizon Energy are one of the only certified suppliers of Icynene in the North.

As one of the most advanced products and technologies available, Icynene spray foam insulation is superior to other insulation materials due to its application method and the properties of the foam itself. Upon application, it grows to 100 times its size, filling every nook and cranny for maximum surface coverage, thus 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 problems.

Spray foam underfloor insulation Wigan

For Wigan’s properties, up to 40% of the heat loss is via doors, windows and the floor, costing hundreds of pounds a year in wasted energy costs, most of which can be easily avoided through the installation of effective spray foam underfloor insulation.

An extremely effective way of insulating properties in Wigan, the unique formulation is a liquid to foam substance, which expands and solidifies on impact with surfaces within 10 seconds. This allows it to fill every nook and cranny, which creates an airtight seal that protects the underfloor areas and prevents excessive heat loss through the voids beneath floors. It is also completely safe, efficient to install and practical for use around wiring, plumbing and electrical appliances.

Loft Insulation Wigan

Loft insulation is one of the most popular methods for making a property more energy-efficient and is a common home improvement.

Wigan’s properties can benefit from loft insulation to help stop excessive heat loss, as well as improve carbon emissions.

For loft insulation to be most effective, the rafters in the roof, as well as the voids between the floor beams, should be insulated. Because of the shape of most roofs, and the angle at which they lie, spray foam loft insulation is the most effective way to ensure full surface coverage.

Due to the expanding nature of the foam, it effectively fills every gap, no matter how small, creating an airtight seal for supreme comfort, and is also convenient to install, as no boards need to be removed.

Spray roof insulation Wigan

Properties in Wigan will also lose heat via the roof, which can account for up to 25% of a property’s energy loss.

An ideal solution is to apply spray roof insulation, which will help to retain heat and prevent energy loss, as well as keep damp and moisture at bay which can help improve air quality too.

The application method means improved accuracy and significantly more expansive coverage than other types of insulation, such as rock wool, which will prevent heat escaping and reduce pests and bacteria in the air.

Spray roof insulation in Wigan properties can also help protect against 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.
