THE Na­tional In­su­la­tion As­so­ci­a­tion (NIA) is urg­ing house­hold­ers to act now and in­su­late.

Fol­low­ing the re­cent an­nounce­ments of fuel price hikes, NIA chief ex­ec­u­tive Neil Mar­shall said: “Home in­su­la­tion is the most cost-ef­fec­tive way of sav­ing on do­mes­tic en­ergy bills.

“An as­tound­ing 59 per cent of heat can be lost through unin­su­lated walls and roofs; but with the right mea­sures put in place, house­hold­ers could be mak­ing huge sav­ings on their en­ergy bills.

“By sim­ply in­stalling cav­ity wall in­su­la­tion sav­ings of up to £140 per year can be made and £180 per year from loft in­su­la­tion. Draught-proof­ing win­dows and doors can save £30 per year.”
