There are two main types of insulation that your home needs:
- Cavity wall insulation or solid wall insulation to prevent heat loss through your walls
- Loft insulation to stop warmth escaping through the roof
A study by industry experts Energy Saving Trust found that the average gas-powered centrally heated home can save about £260 a year in energy bills by installing efficient insulation. This means that, in a year or two, the energy you save may more than cover the cost of fitting insulation.
With the Green Deal initiative, you could be eligible for a government grant to pay towards the cost. By making your home more energy efficient, it’s also good to know that you’re helping the environment by reducing your carbon footprint.
Don’t forget Blackpool’s hot and sunny summers too, when professionally fitted home insulation can help keep your house cooler. Another benefit of insulation is that it acts as a sound barrier to reduce noise, perhaps from Blackpool’s well-known nightlife.
