Environmental impact / Property value impact regarding Insulation
The presence of insulation in a property is sure to be attractive to potential property buyers, both for the substantial energy bill saving that it offers and for its impact upon one’s carbon footprint. Your property’s Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating, which is required by law whenever a residential or commercial building is built, sold, or rented, will also be positively affected by the presence of insulation.
For landlords, a higher EPC rating will be appreciated by tenants looking to pay less on their energy bills.
One potential negative point is that potential buyers may be put off a property tied into a Green Deal agreement with high repayments. Given the relative low cost of most types of insulation, however, payments are unlikely to continue over a long period.
