insulation and draught proofing

You are here

Our homes lose the heat we put in alarmingly quickly, through inadequately insulated roofs, walls and floors, and leaky doors and windows. Loft insulation should be at least 300mm thick; adding insulation to walls is sometimes less easy. But simple draught-proofing materials can be found in any DIY store.
The key action is to insulate wherever, and whenever, and as well as, you can.
