Heat loss through your walls can be dramatically decreased with cavity wall insulation yet many older homes do not have it. The insulation between the brick and the inside wall will significantly reduce heat lost by conduction. If your home does not have cavity wall insulation, it could be costing you a fortune.
Windows is another big way in which heat is lost from the home but something as simple as investing in new, quality double glazed windows can have a big impact. The air between the two panes of glass in double glazing reduces heat loss as air is a very poor conductor. If your home has old, substandard windows and your energy bills are skyrocketing, investing in new windows could be the ideal solution.
The more heat you’re losing through your wall and your windows, the more it’s costing you to replace it; by investing in features to make your home more energy efficient you can do you bit for the environment and save yourself a lot of money.
