Press Release:
Don't delay, save with insulation

Release Date 27 August 2014

Householders could be saving up to £460* per year by installing insulation and with the average annual dual fuel bill now totaling £1,328 per year, the National Insulation Association (NIA) is urging householders to think smart and insulate now.

Incredibly around 60% of the heat in a home can be lost through uninsulated walls and roofs; but with the right measures put in place, householders could make huge savings on their fuel bills.

Neil Marshall, Chief Executive of the NIA, commented: "The benefits of insulation are clear, by installing solid wall insulation savings of up to £460* per year can be made on fuel bills and £250* per year from cavity wall insulation. Loft Insulation can also save up to £250* per year and Draught-proofing windows and doors can save between £35 and £50* per year and when installed with other measures will greatly increase the comfort in a home.”

Marshall added: "Home insulation is the single most effective method of saving money on domestic energy bills, with savings continuing year on year! Householders wishing to start saving on fuel bills are urged to visit our website www.nia-uk.org to contact their local NIA member without delay who can advise them on the most appropriate and efficient method possible of insulating their home."

He added: "By installing insulation householders will also be protecting against future energy bill rises. Earlier this month, price comparison website energyhelpline.com warned that energy companies could be looking at increasing rates around 10 per cent before the winter months, which means the average household bill could increase by £130 to £1,450 per year!

"Householders might also be able to obtain financial support in paying for insulation measures through the Green Deal and Energy Company obligation."

To find out more, or to contact their local installer, householders should visit the NIA website on www.nia-uk.org or call 08451 636363.
