Making your home more energy efficient

Loft insulation

If you have a loft that isn’t insulated, as much as a third of your heating costs could be escaping through your roof. Loft insulation is a very effective way to reduce your heating bills.

Cavity wall insulation

Cavity wall insulation is a simple cost effective way to significantly reduce the amount of energy you need to heat your home. The average house could reduce heating costs by over a third.

Central heating

Installing a new boiler and a full set of heating controls could save you up to £225 and 1.1. tonnes of CO2 a year.

Glazing

Installing double glazing can cut heat loss through windows by half, and can save £80 - £100 a year on your heating bills.

Draught proofing

Draught proofing is one of the cheapest and most efficient ways to save energy in any type of building, from a flat to a mansion.

Solid wall insulation

Solid walls lose even more heat than cavity walls; the only way to reduce this heat loss is to insulate them on the inside or the outside. This will help create a more even temperature in your home, help prevent condensation on the walls and ceilings and can also reduce the amount of heat building up inside your home during summer hot spells.
