Insulate your home

Cut the waste, feel the heat

You could be wasting a lot of heat and money if your home is poorly insulated.  Well insulated homes need less energy to heat up and could stay warmer for longer. So, spending some money up front could lead to lower energy bills and a home that’s greener too.

Five DIY insulation ideas

There are some actions you could take to get started on reducing heat loss, which are relatively cheap and possible to do yourself in some cases:

  1. Wrap insulating material around heating pipes
  2. Fit a special insulating jacket to your water tank
  3. Place insulation on the back of loft hatches
  4. Go for thicker curtains or blinds
  5. Fit draught excluders to doors
