Q-bot Insulation Costs
Energy is everything in today's ever-changing, modern world. Whether they come in the form of gas, geothermal, diesel and petrol, solar, wind, hydroelectric, biomass, or tidal energy, they are the building blocks that power our homes, devices, transportation, communications, and so much more. But as energy prices continue to rise in 2023, it's becoming increasingly important for homeowners to look for cost-effective ways to save money on their energy bills while also keeping their homes warm and comfortable. However, many people are unaware that heat loss can occur not only through roofs and walls but also through uninsulated floors—by up to 20%.
Therefore, it can be useful to understand the intricacies of insulation costs, such as for Q-bot insulation, to help you make informed decisions that yield maximum benefits for you and your home. In this article, we'll delve into the factors that influence Q-bot’s insulation cost, as well as share testimonials and case studies that show how underfloor insulation can help improve energy efficiency and savings whilst being more affordable than other types of insulation.
Factors affecting Q-bot insulation costs
Your location and the size of the installation have a significant impact on insulation costs, with larger installations generally being more cost-effective per square metre. This is largely due to the fact that larger installations allow economies of scale to take effect.
It is also important to note that additional costs can be incurred in some situations, particularly for government funded schemes such as ECO+ (the Great British Insulation Scheme), which require PAS 2035 compliance. This is the standard specification and guideline for the installation of energy efficiency measures, such as underfloor insulation, in domestic energy retrofit projects. For example, having a suspended floor insulated can increase the air tightness of a building, so installing ventilation must be considered, which can raise the final cost.
Moreover, if underfloor issues such as dampness, rotting, or problems with floor timbers are discovered within a property, the homeowner or landlord may be required to take action, which can increase the overall cost of getting your home insulated. Q-Bot does not offer these services, but we can provide advice and guidance on what is needed.
Price range & structure
The installation price will vary depending on the specific requirements of each individual energy retrofit project. As such, it's essential to carefully consider the unique characteristics of your home and get familiar with the Q-bot installation process in order to get the most accurate estimate possible.
On average, the cost of Q-bot insulation falls between £75 and £150 per square metre, with an average installation size of 40 to 45 square metres for private home owners. Typically, the most expensive part of the insulation process is bringing specialist equipment and trained personnel to the installation site.
Energy-efficient homes are the future
In recent years, the importance of having an energy-efficient home has become increasingly clear, as many homeowners, and even landlords, have sought ways to lower their energy bills and reduce their carbon footprint. In 2023, this trend shows no signs of slowing down.
With the world becoming more focused on reducing our carbon emissions, Q-bot is perfectly poised to meet the needs of modern homeowners, offering a cost-effective and cutting-edge solution that can drastically improve thermal performance while minimising disruption—Q-bot insulation can be installed in 1-2 days. Also, in our study of 180 homes, insulating underfloors reduced heat loss by at least 77% and cold draughts by a third for the whole house. This led to an improvement in the EPC score (Energy Performance Certificate) by an average of 5 points, making underfloor insulated homes more energy efficient while also lowering energy bills and reducing carbon emissions.
One of the best ways to gauge the effectiveness and value of Q-bot insulation is to examine the experiences of those who have already invested in this innovative solution. As such, case studies, customer reviews, and testimonials can provide real-world insights into the benefits of having your floor insulated as well as the potential cost savings that can be achieved through underfloor insulation. Here are a few testimonials from homeowners who have used Q-bot in the past:
Besides making your home more comfortable, quieter, and energy-efficient, Q-bot insulation also offers a long-term solution that will pay for itself in just 8-15 years purely based on energy savings. This is far better than replacing your windows or boiler, or even installing other types of underfloor insulation.
