The price of energy in the UK has risen sharply since the economic downturn took hold back in 2008, with the cost of both gas and electricity staying far above the average rate of income. This has caused problems for people all over the country, so therefore finding simple ways which can save money on utility bills is something which has relevance to nearly everyone. Thankfully there are solutions out there which make a noticeable difference, such as installing engineered flooring, which combines the latest innovations in layering wood to provide a material which traps heat from escaping.
Engineered flooring is manufactured by using a top layer of real hardwood with either a three ply or multi-ply base. This can comprise of plywood, softwood, or even an HDF board, and the top veneer of hardwood typically ranging from between 3-4mm in thickness. Engineered floors provide the same look as a solid wood floor, but their properties are different. Because the top layer of hardwood is attached to a layered ply base, there is much less chance of the wood expanding or contracting like with solid wood planks. Engineered flooring is energy efficient in more ways than one:
