World Environment Day - why insulating your home can not only save you money but also the planet
Posted on 25th May 2021 at 12:12
Today is World Environment Day, since 1974, World Environment Day has been celebrated every year on 5 June, engaging governments, businesses and citizens in an effort to address pressing environmental issues.
If you want to do your bit to help the environment and reduce your carbon emissions whilst keeping your energy bills low, installing insulation or draught-proofing will reduce heat loss.
There are many simple yet effective ways to insulate your home, which can significantly reduce heat loss while lowering your heating bills, including insulating your loft.
With up to 25% of your home’s heating leaving through the loft, loft insulation is worth considering. The process literally wraps your home in a blanket, stopping rising heat from leaving the house. Even if your loft is already insulated, you may be able to top it up for maximum benefits. This could save you over £100 a year in heating bills, not to mention reducing your CO2 emissions by more than 600kg. Properly installed, modern loft insulation will last for around forty years and will pay for itself over and over again!
The Loft Access Company have over 22 years’ experience in all things loft related - including installing loft insulation. If have any other questions or would like to book in a no-obligation survey, please get in touch. Thank you for reading!
