Snow is per­fect in­su­la­tion test

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THE En­ergy Sav­ing Trust is urg­ing peo­ple to keep an eye on the roofs in their street fol­low­ing the re­cent snowy weather.

An­drew Cooper, Man­ager of the En­ergy Sav­ing Trust ad­vice cen­tre for South and West York­shire, says: “The snowy weather is a heaven-sent op­por­tu­nity to check if you or your neigh­bours’ houses have got ef­fec­tive, or in­deed any, loft in­su­la­tion. Homes with less in­su­la­tion will see the snow dis­ap­pear more quickly as heat es­capes more eas­ily through the roof.”

In­su­la­tion in­stal­la­tion is free of charge to some peo­ple and for oth­ers there are dis­counted costs of around £99. Con­tact the En­ergy Sav­ing Trust on 0800 512 012, www.en­er­gysav­ingtrust.org.uk.
