As British Gas announces its increase in energy prices and winter just around the corner it is no wonder people are looking to save energy by installing home insulation into their homes.
With energy prices to increase next month and winter just around the corner; people are looking for ways to save money on energy bills. One of the most cost effective ways to save energy is to have a well insulated home; a poorly insulated home could be loosing 50% energy through the walls and loft.
Investing in Cavity Wall Insulation and Loft Insulation can be both environmentally and financially beneficial; it is one of the easiest and most effective ways for energy conservation. A typical household could save up to £300 per year on heating bills if they had a fully insulated home.
Cavity Wall Insulationis a quick and easy process of filling the gaps between your walls cavities; making it more difficult for heat to escape. The Energy Saving Trust has revealed; if every household in the UK installed Cavity Wall Insulation, 7 million tones of carbon emissions could be saved which, is quite a shocking figure. The surprising thing is in the current financial climate and energy bills on the rise again, 50% of homes in the UK have not got adequate Cavity Wall Insulation. Financially it is an investment that can not be ignored.
Loft Insulationis also a quick and easy process with very little disruption; Loft Insulation should be 270mm thick and be fitted by a professional in order for it to be effective. Loft Insulationstops energy needed to heat the home escaping through the roof.
Both Loft Insulationand Cavity Wall insulationwill not set you back a fortune however, will save you a fortune in the long run. Government Loft Insulation and Cavity Wall Insulation grants are also available to everyone so there is no excuse not to look into installing it into your home.
Remember the winter of 2010, well don't wait for the big freeze to set in and energy bills to rise, get your home wrapped up ready for winter!
