This was £19.99 last week - not as good as last years deals but better than B&Q and my local store has lots of stock. Given the recent gas price increases it will pay for itself by spring.

You can get free loft insulation via various energy providers .. Some conditions apply . just check if you qualify .

nice. just in time for my epc report. thanks heat added.

Brilliant, just had a quick check as I was about to order it at £20 a roll.

Some people can get free insulation, but I can't, despite trying and trying and trying, so just having to bite the bullet as I only have 170mm in my loft at the minute, so I'm sure it will pay for itself relatively quickly!

Thanks

Does anyone know how long this offer is available for?

Seems like a deal to me, had been pricing up insulation of similar thickness.

Quite literally, deserves some heat!

Still on - picked up another 6 rolls for under the floorboards this morning.

This stuff was £3 a roll last year!

All rolls were marked throughout "DIY USE ONLY" & supposed to be a max of 20 rolls a customer

Well we did a whole Shop/Flat Conversion ourselves (honest Govnr) used 40 rolls & saved a fortune!

I would find it really hard to pay this for loft insulation knowing that it comes up for pounds on occasions.

However delaying buying it on the off chance, increases the cost shelled out, ...installed it starts saving immediately, I get your logic, but the more prices rise, & the harsher the winter, the more you are saving by having it, hopefully equating to less heating cycles & kwh being pulled through your heating system (forcing gas & oil boilers to work harder for example).

Very rarely can you have "too much insulation" so fit now & top up, ...we've got a mix of phenolic insulation, foil encapsulated mineral fibre & loose blanket all varying depth depending on how much access is required within the roofspace, & I still top up when theres a deal on, it's over 500mm thick in places.

(nb eventually there is a diminishing effect upon return but you have to go some to reach that point) ..basically keep on adding it, allowing for soffit & eave ventilation.

oh & drill a hole in some Nesqik lids complete with the container (follow he lid circle diameter) & fill it with a decent 2nd gen brom based rat & mouse killer 100g+, the winter season is upon us so it's little critters finding snug corners too! ....the advantage of following the nesqik format is it's relatively spillproof, bright, noticeable & easy to refill, plus, should you get the worst invader ((rats)) the diameter of hole is enough for them to gorge on & die, ..clue if it sounds bigger than a mouse it's a rat or squirrel, ..they climb vertically up brickwork, adjacent branches & squash their backs against downpipes to assist an easy climb & entry!
this is because they love the mineral fibre & nest amongst it, ...so whilst up in the loft check for rodent activity & lay down some decent bait, (regular mousetraps just lead to superating mice compared to poisoned deydrated mice corpses et al).

I have to buy loft insulation this week would you recommend wicks as the cheapest?

I would definitely recommend this insulation. Bought a bulk load of it and fitted half of it at the weekend. Easy enough to work with, can feel the benefit already. Compared to B & Q its far cheaper. Quidco as well.

Although the website says there is a max order per customer I spoke to a girl on the phone who said this was a legacy from when they had an offer on with Eon and orders were capped. I bought 25 rolls which took it over £300 so got free delivery as well.

For the people who said this was down to a fiver or so last year, approx what month was it reduced further? I cant imagine they would make it ridiculously cheap before April or so?

Could someone who has handled these rolls let me know how many you reckon you could get in the back of a medium sized estate car please? It's hard to visualise these from the dimensions given.

Thanks.

Not many! Possibly 3 if you're lucky! There is free delivery for orders over £300 though.

Thanks, I appreciate the advice.

Beware - they have recently changed the product (at least near us in the hedge end store). We ordered online and received smaller rolls (6.47m2 coverage) not 8.15m2 as advertised & had to ask for a refund. Think they will now be updating the website. I'd recommend you check with the store to see if you can still get the 8.15 m2... (or its 20% less insulation, not such a great deal!)
