Where does all that heat go?

According to the Energy Saving Trust in an uninsulated home:

66% heat loss through uninsulated solid walls
33% heat loss through uninsulated walls
25% heat loss through the loft/roof space
20% heat loss through windows & doors

Understanding Insulation

Cavity Wall Insulation

Cavity Wall Insulation stores the heat within the inner walls, bouncing it back into the room and holding it for longer.

Solid Wall Insulation

If you live in a home with solid walls, 45% of your heat is escaping through the walls which is costing you money.

Loft Insulation

As much as a third of the heat you pay for could be escaping through your roof.

Draught Proofing

Draught proofing is one of the most inexpensive and effective energy efficiency measures for the home.
