A typical house with no loft insulation can expect to save around £150 a year if loft insulation is installed to the current recommended standard, a house with unfilled cavities can also expect to save around £115 a year if cavity wall insulation is installed.

Partial and full grant funding is available now to help reduce the costs of installing energy saving measures. For those of you over the age of 70 or in receipt of an income related benefit; you may qualify to have loft and cavity wall insulation installed for free.
