A good idea if its posssible to do it with out to much disruption.
Have done a few of these for clients this year alone and they felt the differance straight away. Can be quite costly though and a right dirty job.
If you have it done i would advise if its rockwool insulation you use, dont use plastic netting use chicken wire, Plastic will stretch after a while with the summer temps and the Rockwool sags. You can use Board type insulations but they come at a cost and working around pipes ect can make the job to tough.
Also depends on the void under your floor an if it would be possible to get in there.
