If your home isn't insulated properly, you could be wasting a lot of energy. The right level of insulation can make a big difference to your energy costs and comfort in your home.
Up to 25% of the heat in your home is lost through the roof and up to 35% through the walls so insulating them gives you the biggest savings on your energy bills. Find out how much by visiting the Energy Saving Trust.
Take our energy efficiency survey. We'll let you know if your insulation needs improving and what you could save. In general, if your home is more than seven years old, it can probably be improved by better insulation.
Most modern homes have cavity walls made up of two layers of brick with a gap in-between. Insulating this gap and your loft should be straightforward when carried out by a professional installer.
If you're good at DIY you could even look at insulating your loft yourself - just be careful!
