A Dorset house that is not properly insulated can waste a great deal of heat. For example, an uninsulated property can lose around a quarter of its warmth through the roof. This is bad news for the planet and for people’s pockets. By insulating your home, you can prevent heat from escaping, thereby improving your energy efficiency.
So, not only could insulation save you money, but it will also reduce your carbon footprint and improve the Energy Performance Rating of your property, whether you live in a quiet town like Shaftesbury or in bustling Bournemouth.
How much will it cost?
The cost of these improvements will depend on the type of insulation you’re after and the scale of the project, but you can expect to make potentially significant savings in the long term thanks to lower heating bills. Also, you may be eligible for Green Deal finance, helping to make your loft, cavity or solid wall insulation more affordable. Under this simple finance scheme, some or all of the upfront costs of the installation can be put against your electricity bill, be it cavity wall insulation or another energy saving measure. You then repay the sum over time via your energy bills. Once the capital has been repaid, the resulting savings are entirely yours to benefit from.
