Heat Loss Without Underlay

We consider underlay a necessity! This is largely because about 10% of the heat loss in homes is through the floor. Therefore, by investing in some underlay recommended by our team and high quality flooring, you have more of a chance at saving money and energy!

Protect Condition of Your Floor

Another reason why you should think carefully about the underlay you choose, is because it can act as a shock absorber. It, therefore, it will protect your floor from wear. This is great if you have a particularly busy household and people are constantly coming in and out.


Underlay is also beneficial if you’re hoping to soundproof a room. The best carpet underlay for insulation will act as a barrier against noise. Particularly good if you have a busy workplace! Also, this means that there will be a reduction in the amount of noise you hear from rooms upstairs in your home.
