The big worry on everyone’s minds lately is climate change and how we can help. The earth’s climate has changed drastically throughout history, with the last ice age ending over 7000 years ago, marking the beginning of the modern climate era and human civilization.
Currently, our climates warming trend is of concern, as it is extremely likely that it is due to human activity since the mid-20th century. This is due to the effects of the carbon dioxide we produce, this heat-trapping gas, along with other gases, has the ability to affect the transfer of infrared energy through the atmosphere, meaning that we are causing the earth to heat up rapidly.
This in effect causes the following problems for earth :
- Global Temperature Rise
- Warming Oceans
- Shrinking Ice Sheets
- Glacial Retreats
- Sea Level Rise
- Extreme Weather Events (such as storm Hannah)
- Ocean Acidification
So how can we help with home insulation?
Well insulated homes use less energy to keep them warm, this means a lot less carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere. The greenhouse gases that are produced when heating your home from burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas) in power stations and central heating boilers, means that Global Warming is rapidly creeping up on us. A recent documentary by Sir David Attenborough, reveals the worry that if we do not do something now it could be irreversible. By insulating your home correctly, you are playing your part in reducing the effect of global warming.
So, what kind of home insulation can you have?
- Internal Wall insulation
- Room in a roof
- Flat roof insulation
- Underfloor Insulation
- Loft Insulation
- Cavity Wall Insulation
All of these are services we at HIS UK provide and thanks to government grants can offer you them free of charge, if you qualify. Please contact us today to find out if you can help save the planet without spending a penny!
