George Clarke explains how to keep a lid on heat loss. More information available *******www.diy****/eco The loft is an area of the house we rarely think about, but if left uninsulated, can be a make a massive contribution to your energy bills. A poorly insulated house loses about a 1/3 of its heat through the room. (Source: EST - correct as of Feb 2012) The average UK home could save around £280 every year by being more energy efficient (Source: EST - correct as of Feb 2012). Many people don't insulate their lofts because they believe it is difficult and expensive, but nothing could be further from the truth. Insulate your loft is the most cost-effect energy saving task you could do in the home. Not only will you be saving lots of money, but you will be helping create a warm comfortable home for the winter months. There are many materials you can use to insulate your loft. There is glass fibre, which is made from recycled glass bottles all the way through to all-natural sheep's wool. You can also buy insulation boards, which will still give you the ability to store items in the attic. It is important to ensure any loft hatch or door is well insulated and draft-proof, to prevent any heat within the house, escaping to the roof space. Another area of the house worth considering in regards to potential heat loss, is the hot water tank which needs to be insulated properly. This can be accomplished with a hot water cylinder jacket, which can cost under £6. A cylinder jacket can cut heat-loss by up to 75%, and save you around £35 a year. (Source: EST - correct as of Feb 2012) Heat loss can also occur through the walls of your house. Cavity walls are generally better than solid walls, because they have got an air gap in between. But even cavity walls can account for 1/3 of the heat-loss from your home (Source: EST - correct as of Feb 2012). Cavity wall insulation usually costs around £250, depending on the size of your home, but this can save you over £135 a year on your energy bill (Source: EST - correct as of Feb 2012). One final tip worth considering, is getting draught excluders, as draught proofing doors and windows can save around £30 every year (Source: EST - correct as of Feb 2012). Thing smart. Think warm. Save Energy. Save Money.
