How To Insulate Your Home Efficiently This Winter

All Posts

Effective home insulation is a key way to stay energy efficient and reduce your energy costs.

Here’s the best insulation measures to heat your home this Christmas.

Bring in natural light during the day

Keep your curtains open during the day to bring in plenty of natural light. Allow the warmth of the sun to help heat your rooms before closing window coverings when it gets dark – dense drapes can help conserve heat at night.

Fill your floorboards

The small gaps between your floorboards can really let cold air in. Try using a filler to prevent draughts sweeping in through the gaps – this is a simple and effective way to keep your rooms insulated.

Consider loft insulation

Homes typically lose a third of their heat through the roof, so you could be wasting a great deal of money on heating if your loft is uninsulated. Insulating your loft is therefore a great energy efficient measure to keep your house warm, cut energy costs and reduce your carbon footprint.

With so much heat being lost through your roof due to inadequate or missing insulation, the government’s free loft insulation scheme is intended to help people save on energy bills, reduce their impact on the environment and keep their homes in a cosy and liveable condition. With UK Energy Management (NE) Ltd, it’s easy to check your eligibility for a free loft insulation grant.

Invest in cavity wall insulation

If your house was built between 1924 and 1982, it’s likely you’ll have cavity walls – two layers of brick with a gap (or cavity) in-between them. They’re one of the worst contributors to heat loss in our homes – without effective insulation, 35% of your house’s heat will end up escaping straight through your cavity walls. However, cavity wall insulation is a reliable measure for keeping the cold out, keeping the heat in, and keeping warmth and comfort levels at an optimum in your home. This cost-efficient investment is a great way to save money over Christmas.

At UKEM, we can help you conserve energy this winter by signing you up to the UK government’s free cavity wall insulation grant scheme. If you’re a homeowner or private tenant, receiving income-based benefits, living in a high-carbon emitting home and struggling to cope with the cost of living, then there’s a good chance you qualify for the grant.
