With underfloor insulation, you are not just kept warm during the winter, but your place stays cool during the summer. Underfloor insulation does not work by trapping heat, instead, it reduces the loss of heat. This results in a controlled airflow, where warm air doesn’t get in during the summer and cold air doesn’t get in during the wintertime. Your home can be thought of like a thermos flask, with underfloor insulation. It keeps the cool air cool and warm air warm. Just as a thermos flask controls the temperature of what’s inside it, your floor insulation gives more control over your home’s airflow.
