Where does all that heat go?
According to the Energy Saving Trust in an uninsulated home:
This release presents the latest statistics on the Green Deal (GD) up to the end of March 2015 and the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) up to the end of February 2015. For more details about the GD/ECO schemes, please see Annex B. More detailed analysis of GD Assessments lodged, measures installed under Cashback and the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund and provisional measures installed under ECO up to the end of December 2014 are also available in the quarterly statistical release.
Cavity Wall Insulation stores the heat within the inner walls, bouncing it back into the room and holding it for longer.
If you live in a home with solid walls, 45% of your heat is escaping through the walls which is costing you money.
As much as a third of the heat you pay for could be escaping through your roof.
Draught proofing is one of the most inexpensive and effective energy efficiency measures for the home.
