5. Insulate Your Home
Insulation can be a wise investment, in most cases it will pay for itself in 5 years or less – then roll on the savings from there.
A quarter of the heat in uninsulated homes is lost through the roof. Loft insulation cost around £300 and can save you around £750 over five years. Households can use at least 13% more energy for space heating if they heat their conservatories. Fitted in a day, and at around ¼ the cost of a solid tiled roof, conservatory roof insulation could save you £744 per year*
*according to a Survey carried out by the Department of Energy and Climate Change, the average conservatory owner uses an extra 4,800 kWh per annum. Which at 15.5p pkw equates to £744 per year!
