According to research conducted by the Energy Saving Trust, over half of an average UK households fuel bills are spent on heating and hot water. With the ongoing energy price rises, homes which lack adequate insulation may see an alarming increase in their winter energy bills.
In this blog we look at what insulation options are available and how they can help save money on your energy bills?
Houses lose 30% of their heat from their roof.
If your loft is not insulated – or is under insulated – a considerable quantity of heat will be escaping out of your roof, potentially up to 30% of the heat you’ve already paid for. Loft insulation is, without a doubt, an effective form of insulation that is usually fairly easy to install.

Cavity wall insulation acts like a blanket for your home, stopping heat from escaping through your walls – you can lose a staggering 30% of your homes heat through the walls. Cavity wall insulation retains the heat in your house and releases it back into the internal space, therefore keeping you home warmer.

During the winter, heating your home might account for the bulk of your utility expenses. As a result, improving the insulation of your home can play a huge role in saving both energy and money. A well insulated home will also be cooler in summer, helping you to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature all year round.
An insulated home may keep germs at bay
Insulation also helps minimize noise levels entering your property from the outside, helps with condensation problems, requires no upkeep, and lasts. A well-insulated home is also good for our health, a study from Yale University found that it is more difficult to maintain our immunity when it is fighting to stay warm. Your body simply can’t fight the cold and a virus at the same time.
