The insulation of lost attics avoids to let heat rise unnecessarily to uninsulated roof spaces by blocking the thermal and acoustic insulation at floor level. It is a simple and fast operation, within the reach of every handyman.
The floor of these attics allows to unwind a thick mineral wool after carefully covering the floor with an insulating membrane, laid in the rules of art to ensure a seamless seal.
