At the Snug Network, we have a large number of professional member companies based all over the UK, including in and around Derby. These companies offer a variety of improvements that could make your home more energy efficient.
There are a number of different types of home insulation services available, including roof and loft insulation. The latter has an expected lifetime of 42 years and homeowners will see that the product pays for itself, usually many times over. Solid wall insulation and cavity wall insulation can also make you significant savings.
Derby is renowned internationally for its transport engineering, and is home to global aero-engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce. Residents of this manufacturing city could benefit from enhanced yet simple innovations in their own homes in the form of insulation products.
The average house can expect external walls to account for around 35 per cent of heat loss. Since heat rises, a quarter of the warmth produced in the home is lost through the roof. Not only can the right insulation save you energy and, therefore, money on your bills, it is also a very effective way to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Studies suggest that some types of insulation will save more than a tonne of carbon dioxide per square metre of insulation.
