If the insulation in your property isn’t up-to-scratch, now is the time to take action. Milton Keynes may not be the coldest place in the UK, but things can still get pretty chilly in this Buckinghamshire town during the winter months.
The fact is, if you’re lacking suitable cavity wall, solid wall or loft insulation, you could be spending much more than you need to on heating for your home. As well as being bad news for your bank balance, this is not good for the environment.
Understand your options
Whether you’re based in Wolverton, Bletchley, Stony Stratford or anywhere else in Milton Keynes, installers from the Snug Network can come to assess your home and tell you what sort of insulation you may need. While most properties built since the 1990s have insulated walls, many older homes do not. If you live in a property built before 1920, the chances are your walls are solid, meaning you might benefit from installing solid wall insulation on the inside or outside of your external wall. However, many houses constructed from the 1920s onwards feature gaps that can be filled with cavity wall insulation.
