Insulating your home properly will reduce heat loss and cut your heating bills. Sheep’s wool is nature’s most effective insulator, and here are five of its key benefits…
1. It's eco-friendly
Sheep Wool Insulation is made from 100% pure wool and is the environmentally friendly, green way to insulate. It is a sustainable and renewable resource, reducing your carbon footprint.
2. It saves you money
Sheep Wool Insulation and other energy-efficient products are a great long-term investment because green buildings make increasingly good economic sense. Major international studies such as the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors' "Green Value" report have found clear links between green buildings and their market value. So Sheep Wool Insulation doesn't just save you money by reducing your heating bills and cutting the running costs of your home. It also increases your energy rating and adds value to your property.
3. It's efficient
Sheep’s wool is very energy-efficient compared with other insulation materials on the market. Sheep Wool Insulation acts as a buffer between the cold damp weather outside and the warm dry environment inside your home. As wool is breathable, it absorbs moisture to keep you house warm during winter, and releases moisture in summer to keep your house cool.
4. It's safe
Unlike many other insulation products, Sheep Wool Insulation is totally safe and allergy-free. It is not irritating or itchy to the skin, eyes or respiratory system, so you won’t have any health concerns. Sheep Wool Insulation does not support combustion and it will extinguish itself in the event of fire.
5. It's easy to install
Because the wool is natural, it is safe to handle and does not require special equipment or safety clothing. Sheep Wool Insulation fits around shapes and joists easily and comes in a variety of product types and sizes. You can fit it anywhere – from external or internal walls, under timber or concrete floors to the attic/loft or between the rafters. If you want to make existing attic/loft insulation more effective, you can roll out Sheep Wool Insulation over the existing insulation rather than having to remove it. This can also be safer than removing hazardous material.
