Covid preventive measures for a non-intrusive retrofit install

Q-Bot has developed a Covid-19 framework ‘Q-Bot Ready’ to safely install underfloor insulation in homes, including locating the robotic work station outside the property to mitigate risks. This highlights the non-disruptive nature of Q-Bot’s solution.

Achieve your carbon target by 2030  

Q-Bot’s Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) found that, each year, 700kg of CO2 was saved per household that had installed Q-Bot’s insulation, this is equivalent to a CO2 saving of 20% per year. This translates to the equivalent greenhouse gas emission saving as driving over 1,700 miles in a car (driving from London to Munich and back again). A much-needed measure if the UK wants to meet its net Zero carbon emissions target.

heat loss

Cutting heat loss and cold draughts  

Q-Bot’s underfloor insulation reduced by 77% the heat lost through the floor after insulation was installed and a decrease of cold draughts by 30% across the whole house.

Fuel poverty relief
