Installing loft insulation can help to keep you warmer in your home, and even reduce your energy bills over time.
Any heating you use to warm your home will rise upwards, and it is possible that as much as a quarter of your spatial heating costs are simply escaping through your uninsulated roof; meaning you aren’t locking in all of the energy you use.
Investing in simple loft insulation is a very effective way to keep your home warmer for longer and reduce your heating bills. Whether you have a loft, attic or flat roof, insulating this space to the recommended depth of 270mm can save you a lot of wasted energy and money.
Insulting your loft is an easy task, and you can even do it yourself. Simply talk to your local DIY store or builders’ merchants and they can give you tips on which materials are best to use, and provide instructions on how you can go about insulating your roof space.
Save even more on your energy bills
If you’d like to save even more money on your energy bills, you could run a comparison to see if you could be on a more competitively-priced tariff. It’s possible that you might not already be on the cheapest energy tariff for your postcode, meaning you’re overpaying for your gas and electricity supply.
Switching to a new energy supplier is quick and easy, and the process itself requires very little input on your part. There is no disruption or change to your supply at all; just smaller energy bills. Enter your quote into the postcode form on the right to start comparing suppliers in your local area.
