Mineral Wool & Sheeps Wool Insulation in Scotland

Envirosmart Limited provides sustainable home insulation throughout Scotland with a wide variety of insulation material on offer. We have options for every situation including Knauf Earthwool and Rockwool mineral wool insulation products, sheeps wool insulation, foil insulation, PIR insulation boards and in some cases spray foam insulation. All types of installation are on offer including loft insulation, underfloor insulation, roof insulation, room in roof insulation, cavity wall insulation, internal wall insulation and external wall insulation.

Why should I insulate my home?

60% of the power generated by heating is discharged into the walls and roofs of a house. 35% escapes from inside your walls and approximately 25% from the attic and out into the house. Installation of loft insulation will help reduce your electricity bill while maintaining an ideal air temperature in your room. Most properties are fitted with insulation on the roofs but almost 2/3 of the homes in Scotland are below that standard, 270mm or 11.5″. The insulation in the loft prevents severe heat loss.

Mineral Wool Insulation Scotland

Mineral wool insulation is a type of insulation material made from natural or synthetic minerals, primarily basalt, diabase, slag, and limestone. It is a versatile and commonly used insulation material in both residential and commercial construction. Mineral wool insulation is available in various forms, including batts, blankets, loose-fill, and rigid boards, making it suitable for different applications such as walls, roofs, floors, and attics.

We only supply and fit the best UK brands of mineral wool insulation including Knauf Earthwool and Rockwool.

Sheep Wool Insulation Scotland

Sheep wool insulation is a type of thermal insulation made from natural sheep’s wool. It is a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional insulation materials. Sheep wool insulation is derived from the fleece of sheep, which is a renewable and biodegradable resource. This type of insulation has gained popularity in recent years due to its eco-friendly properties and excellent insulation performance.

Sheeps wool is the a more premium insulation product in terms of cost, however, it has the performance to back up the cost and if you have the budget available you should definitely consider having it installed.

What our clients say about us

Insultation in Scotland

Initially we contracted Craig and his team to provide insulation for two attic rooms which are either freezing or much too hot and they ended up fitting a new kitchen too.
We can't recommend this firm highly enough, especially for the way they helped us through the unexpected discovery of damp.

Communication and customer service were excellent; friendly helpful worker were punctual, hardworking and cleaned up thoroughly.
Highly recommended.

    What Exactly is Home Insulation?

    What Exactly is Home Insulation?

    Home insulation is a material or combination of materials that are installed in buildings to reduce heat loss or gain by providing a barrier between the inside and outside of the building. The main purpose of home insulation is to improve energy efficiency by minimizing the amount of heat that escapes in the winter and enters in the summer, thus reducing the amount of energy needed to heat or cool the home. Insulation can be made from a variety of materials, including fiberglass, cellulose, foam, and mineral wool. It is typically installed in the walls, attic, and floors of a home, but can also be used to insulate pipes and other areas where heat transfer may occur. The effectiveness of insulation is measured by its R-value, which is the resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the more effective the insulation is at reducing heat transfer. The appropriate level of insulation for a home will depend on factors such as climate, building design, and energy costs.

    Insulation Top Tips

    Envirosmart's Energy Efficiency Top Tips

    1. Use the right type of insulation for the job: Different types of insulation are more effective in certain areas of the home than others. For example, fiberglass batts work well in walls and ceilings, while loose-fill insulation is better for attics and floors.
    2. Seal air leaks: Even the best insulation won’t be effective if there are gaps or cracks in your home’s exterior that allow air to escape or enter. Use caulk or weatherstripping to seal these leaks.
    3. Insulate your attic: A poorly insulated attic can be a major source of energy loss. Adding insulation to your attic can help reduce heat loss in the winter and keep your home cooler in the summer.
    4. Insulate your walls: Insulating your walls can also help reduce heat loss and improve energy efficiency. This is especially important if your home was built before the 1980s, when insulation standards were lower.
    5. Insulate your basement or crawl space: Uninsulated basements and crawl spaces can be major sources of energy loss. Insulating these areas can help keep your home more comfortable and reduce energy usage.
    6. Use reflective insulation: Reflective insulation, which is made from foil or other reflective materials, can help reduce heat gain in your home by reflecting sunlight away from the roof or walls.
    7. Don’t forget about windows and doors: Insulated windows and doors can help reduce energy loss and improve energy efficiency. Look for products with high energy-efficiency ratings and consider adding weatherstripping or caulk around the edges.
    8. Hire a professional: If you’re not sure how to properly insulate your home, or if you want to ensure that the job is done correctly, consider hiring a professional insulation contractor. They can assess your home’s insulation needs and recommend the best products and techniques for improving energy efficiency.
    Insulation Top Tips

    Envirosmart's Loft Insulation Top Tips

    1. Choose the right type of insulation: There are various types of insulation available, including mineral wool, blown-in insulation, and rigid insulation boards. Choose the type that suits your loft and your budget.

    2. Install the insulation correctly: Follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully when installing the insulation. Ensure that you don’t leave any gaps or spaces where air can leak in or out.
    3. Use the correct thickness of insulation: The thickness of insulation needed depends on your home and your location. Generally, a depth of 270mm is recommended for loft insulation in the UK.
    4. Seal gaps and cracks: Before installing insulation, seal any gaps or cracks in the loft to prevent air from escaping or entering. This will also help to prevent moisture from entering the loft space.
    5. Provide ventilation: Ensure that there is enough ventilation in the loft to prevent condensation from building up.
    6. Avoid compressing the insulation: Compressing the insulation can reduce its effectiveness, so ensure that you don’t squash it or put any heavy items on top of it.
    7. Check for existing insulation: Before installing new insulation, check if there is any existing insulation in the loft. If there is, ensure that it is in good condition and doesn’t need to be replaced.
    8. Seek professional help: If you’re unsure about the insulation process, or if you need to install insulation in a difficult-to-reach area, seek the help of a professional insulation installer.

    PIR Insulation Boards: Could Insulation Save You Money on Your Energy Bills?

    Insulating your environment is a vital method of retaining and dispersing heat to maintain a comfortable environment, as well as optimising energy conservation and achieving acoustic control.


    One of the most popular ways to achieve this is the use of PIR (polyisocyanurate) insulation boards, this in most cases is due to them being so easy to install. PIR boards come in different styles but the most common has an aluminium foil backing to each side, making them easily recognisable.


    They are typically used as wall, floor and roof insulation and can also be bonded to plywood, plasterboard or have a glass tissue facing for use externally or in flat roofs.This makes them a versatile choice to suit a range of projects.


    1. PIR provides excellent insulation


    With a lambda value of 0.022 PIR provides the best insulation available on the market. Only Resol insulation scores higher in terms of insulation, but is inferior in terms of pressure and humidity resistance and ease of application.


    1. PIR is thin 


    Because of its high insulation value PIR saves a huge amount of space, as less material is required to attain the same insulation value.


    To achieve a recommended Rd value of 4.50 a 10 cm PIR insulation layer will suffice. To achieve the same Rd value using insulation made of, for example, EPS (expanded polystyrene foam) you would need an insulation layer of approximately 15 cm.


    1. PIR is light 


    Weighing 32 kg/m³ PIR is a lightweight loft insulation material. Mineral wool (or rock wool) for a flat roof on the other hand can weigh more than 120 kg/m³.




    Using mineral wool on a 3000m² flat roof weighing 70,000 kg you would need more material than with PIR. You would also require a thickness of 230 mm, instead of 140 mm using PIR, to achieve an Rd value of 6.0. 


    *Calculated using a current lambda value of 0.038 and weight of 120kg/m³ for mineral wool.


    1. PIR is durable


    PIR is an exceptionally durable insulation material.


    PIR insulation is thin. Less material results in lighter structures and saves on building materials (e.g. smaller foundations, lightweight roofs, etc.).


    PIR maintains energy saving measures its performance in the long term. Whilst a building remains fully insulated heating costs are kept under control, which also results in energy efficient and reduced CO2 emissions.


    The durability of PIR insulation has a positive impact on the life cycle analysis (LCA) of a building project.


    PIR manufacturing plants have low CO2 emissions and they also recycle waste.


    1. PIR is easy to combine


    PIR insulation can easily be combined with different finishes within various applications in the building structure. On a flat roof, for example, you could opt for bitumen roofing, either torch applied, self adhesive or mechanically secured. PVC and EPDM pose no problem either.


    1. PIR is dimensionally stable


    The MCT (Micro Cell Technology) in IKO enertherm PIR insulation makes our insulation boards dimensionally stable. The boards don’t shrink and the tongue and groove system guarantees wind and water tightness.


    1. PIR is humidity proof


    Fluctuating temperatures and a high level of precipitation are common in Western and Northern Europe. PIR does not absorb moisture and consequently retains its original weight and insulation value.


    1. PIR is walkable and pressure resistant


    When installing PIR insulation on a flat roof, roofers can be happy in the knowledge that PIR insulation boards will retain their shape when they stand on them or walk across them. Once installed, maintenance service personnel can also access the roof, e.g. to maintain solar panels, air conditioning and other technical installations. The ‘walkability’ of PIR insulation guarantees its insulation value and quality in all the above situations.


    This is critical because a damaged insulation board will lose some of its insulation value. In some cases new buildings where insulation boards are indented roof membranes may even tear (particularly when secured mechanically) resulting in water ingress.


    1. PIR is user friendly


    Spare a thought for the people who have to apply it!

    • PIR is light
    • PIR is particularly easy to cut
    • PIR creates virtually no dust
    • PIR does not cause itching
    • PIR is very easy to install
    • PIR has a high ‘walkability’ value
    1. PIR complies with fire regulations


    PIR generates little or no smoke, does not melt or drip. In fact PIR insulation is equal to non flammable insulation materials (such as mineral wool) in its end use application.
