Smartplanet: Insulation keeps houses cool in summer

Smartplanet: Insulation keeps houses cool in summer
Summer can be a good time to start out on a low carbon lifestyle, it has been claimed.

SmartPlanet.com has pointed out that as summer approaches it may be a good time for householders to consider fitting insulation.

This is because although the energy saving device ensures that houses lose less heat in winter - which can save £155 per year in bills - it also manages to keep properties cool in summer.

Eco Wool, a form of insulation made from recycled plastic bottles, is a good way to be extra environmentally-friendly, the website emphasises.

In addition, it is easy to install.

"Some [insulations] such as the Eco Wool, are safe to install without protective clothing, so you can leave your goggles, mask and gloves in the tool box," the site says.

Solid wall, cavity wall and loft insulation could save £370, £120 and £155 a year respectively on heating bills, the Energy Saving Trust estimates.
