Now that the weather is getting colder, perhaps you could think about improving your home with the use of insulation.
Insulation can stop up to 30 per cent of your home’s warmth from escaping, so you save that much money on heating, while also making sure you come home to a warm house in winter and a cooler house in summer.
In most homes, you will have two outside walls, with a gap in between the walls. It is by filling this gap with insulation that you can significantly lower the energy you are wasting by heat escaping.
You can also insulate your loft and floors, which, though it’s a large cost to lay out at the beginning, should also result in reducing your heating bills.
What to do if you want to insulate your home
You can ask an industry professional to install the insulation into your home for you. Depending on where you want it, you could do it yourself with the help or advice of others.
For example, insulating your loft will be a lot easier than insulating your walls and there is a lot of information online to help you out.
If you want to insulate your walls, you will need to check to see if you have cavity walls before you go any further with the plan to insulate your walls. Most homes built since 1920 will have cavity walls, but you can check further by going to this website.
