Question by David L: Insulation question – Insulation between floors?
Insulation question – I live in an old (106 years) 3 storey house and I am about to replace the wooden flooring on the top floor – I have roof above this floor. The house is quite cold, more so than normal. Is it advisable to put mineral wool insulation between the floors? Are there any fire safety issues? Since, there are electrical cables for light fittings. Although, I was planning to leave a gap in insulation where light fittings are located. Please advise and many thanks in advance.

If you use rock wool, you should be fine. It will help keep the house warmer, keep the noise between the floors down and, as an added bonus, rock wool usually helps the fire rating.
