Saving Energy by Insulating Your Home
Having adequate home insulation will help to keep your home warm in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Installing insulation throughout your home will make it more energy efficient and will add value to your home. An energy efficient home puts less stress on heating equipment and more importantly will bring down fuel bills.
For example: Loft insulation could save you around £175 a year on your energy bills, and cavity wall insulation around £135 a year.
Even if you have enough insulation in your loft, sealing air leaks will enhance the
performance of your insulation and make for a much more comfortable home.
It also means lowering our carbon dioxide emissions and making a stand against global warming and climate change. The more energy that we use, the greater the amount of CO² being released into the environment.
Draughts around windows and doors you may think are the greatest source of wasted energy. In most homes, however, the most significant air leaks are hidden in the loft space.
Sealing and Insulating your home is one of the most cost-
Over a third of all the heat which escapes from an insulated home is lost through
the walls. Installing wall insulation is one of the most cost-
Insulating under the floorboards on the lowest floor, where the heat is lost, will save you around £60 a year, and gaps between skirting boards and floors can be sealed to stop draughts there too.
Typically a home loses 10% of its heat through the windows. Energy efficient glazing keeps your home warmer and quieter as well as reducing your energy bills.
Government Grants are available to improve the energy efficiency of your home. Check

Help for landlords
The Landlord’s Energy Saving Allowance, available until April 2015, lets you claim
up to £1,500 against tax for energy efficiency improvements you make to each house
or flat you rent out. You could claim back the cost of loft insulation, wall insulation,
floor insulation, hot-
