7. Insulate Your Home
The last of the 7 easy ways to add value to your house is insulation. Typically speaking, insulation pays for itself within 5 years as your energy bills reduce. 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.
If you have a conservatory, chances are it’s too hot to use in the summer, and too cold to use in winter. Transform your conservatory into a room you can use all year round by having your conservatory roof insulated. 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!
