Floor Insulation

Floor Insulation is an approved Green Deal and ECO measure under the Building Fabric Measures category.

What is Floor Insulation?

Insulating under the floorboards on the ground floor of a property will save the customer around £60 a year and the gaps between the floors and the skirting boards can also be sealed in order to fill gaps.

Older homes are more likely to have suspended timber floors. Timber floors can be insulated by lifting the floorboards and laying mineral wool insulation supported by netting between the joints. Many homes, especially newer homes, will have a ground floor made of solid concrete. This can be insulated if it needs to be replaced, or can have rigid insulation laid on top.

Green Deal Home Improvement Fund

Floor Insulation is also a measure under Core 1 of the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund where homeowners can recoup 100% of the installation cost of Floor Insulation up to £1,000 along with £100 for the Green Deal Assessment and another £500 if they have recently moved home.
