The research shows how much you can save on your energy bills and how long loft insulation will take to pay for itself.  This payback time is very quick even if you didn’t have any loft insulation before. Calculations have worked out that you can also still save money by increasing the amount/volume of loft insulation you currently have. 

Loft insulation costs and savings

Professionally installed loft insulation for a "typical three-bedroom, semi-detached house with gas central heating" costs around £300.  It will take around two years to pay for itself through the savings you’ll make on your heating bills. 

The recommended thickness for loft insulation is 270mm. 
The first thing to do is check whether you have any insulation at all in your loft and, if you do, how much. If you already have some insulation in your loft but it falls short of the recommended 270mm, then you could make further savings on your energy bills by topping it up. 
In the tables below (which are separated according to whether you’re insulating from scratch or just topping up), you can see how much it costs to install loft insulation. Plus how much you'll save per year in money and CO2 and how quickly you’ll make your cash back in bill savings.  
Of course, it’s much cheaper to buy the insulation and fit it yourself - by doing that you’d greatly reduce your payback time. 
Loft insulation typically costs around £20 for a 100mm roll designed to cover 8.3m². Loft insulation (0-270mm) 

Type of property / Installation cost / Savings per year / Payback time: 

Detached house (4 bedrooms) / £395 / 1-2 years

Semi-detached house (3 bedrooms) / £300 / 2 years 

Mid-terrace house (3 bedrooms) / £285 / 2 years

Detached bungalow (2 bedrooms) /  £375 / 1-2 years
