Carbon-reducing home insulation 'more cost-effective than ever'

Carbon-reducing home insulation 'more cost-effective than ever'
There has never been a better time to make large-scale energy efficiency changes to homes such as insulation, according to an expert.

While behavioural changes such as turning down thermostats or boiling less water in kettles are often emphasised in the press, Neil Marshall, chief executive of the National Insulation Association, called on homeowners to look towards solutions such as insulation.

Rising energy bills helped to make wholesale energy efficiency measures increasingly attractive, he argued, with insulation offering a cheap, simple and effective method of saving money and reducing a property's carbon footprint.

"With ever increasing living expenses it is more cost effective than ever to insulate your home in order to reduce energy bills and with the growing concerns on climate change insulation is a major way of reducing a carbon footprint," he said.

"Practical measures, like insulation, once installed last forever."

Figures provided by the Energy Saving Trust indicate that homeowners installing loft insulation with a 270 millimetre depth can expect to save £110 annually on their heating bills as well as reducing their carbon footprint by nearly one tonne a year.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18423607-ADNFCR
