When my husband and I first bought our property many years ago (I won’t say how many as I’ll be giving away my age) the house we bought was in need of major renovation works.  This involved stripping back the property to brick work and timber joists and a total refit with new materials.

As you can imagine it was an enormous job for us and one of the most important things we had to take into consideration was the insulation.  Anyone that knows anything about property refurbishment will know that this is one of the major considerations that will affect the energy efficiency of a property.  Modern standards require all renovations and new builds to be well insulated to prevent heat loss.

Most homes have cavity walls and when you fill this with insulation you can reduce the amount of heat lost which could be up to 35%.  Some homes have solid walls rather than cavity walls which require a different form of insulation so your home will need to be surveyed first to identify the type of insulation that your property will require.

Loft insulation is also important with 25% of the energy used to heat the building being lost through the roof – shocking isn’t it.

Imaging the savings if you insulate both!

It’s not just about keeping heat in though.  Insulating property in this way can also help keep the home cool in the Summer so you won’t need to think of drastic ways to cool down.

Interestingly the Energy Saving Trust in 2016 calculated that a properly insulated home can make a yearly saving of between £240 and £275 off their energy bill.  That’s a pretty good incentive to make sure you get it done properly considering the amount that can be saved over the years.  Even better to know is that homeowners on a wide range of state benefits (including child tax credit, job seekers allowance, income support or universal credit working tax credit) are entitled to free home insulation installed through the UK Government’s Affordable Warmth Obligation.  There are also a number of grants and funding schemes that are available to help with the costs of having energy saving improvements installed in your home.  If the thought of having to check if you qualify for free installation is a little daunting then you need not worry as home energy saving specialist BillSaveUK will check this for you.  These guys have a 5 star trust pilot rating (249 reviews) and of course as you know I love finding offers so I really must also mention that following the successful installation of cavity wall or loft insulation for those eligible for the Government’s Affordable Warmth grant, BillSaveUK will reward these customers with a £50 Amazon gift voucher as a thank you for using them.  It seems that having read a large number of the trustpilot reviews the quality of service is professional and reliable with highly trained installers.  The service is really fast as BillSaveUK can install insulation at a home within just two weeks – with the installation process itself taking just a few hours.  Once it’s done you can sit back, pop your feet up and relax as they offer a 25 year guarantee showing complete confidence in the quality of their own work.

In addition as I had a look around on the site I also discovered a refer a friend scheme (make sure you take advantage of this if you do use these guys for your own property insulation).

You can find out if they’re entitled to free cavity wall insulation by calling 0800 368 9938 or completing a quick online form.

  1. I am not sure as I don’t own my own home but thinking about insulation and a cavity wall is certainly something that I need to keep in mind for the future. What a great scheme as well x

  2. Insulating is so important! I live in a log cabin with pretty much no insulation and it’s freezing during the winter and so warm during the summer. Such is the mountain life struggle I guess haha but that sounds like a great offer!

  3. That’s cool that they are giving away the insulation. Being in a house with an add-on that doesn’t have much in the way of insulation, I definitely understand how essential it is. It makes the room hotter in the summer and colder in the winter when it does not have proper insulation.

  6. What wonderful programs the U.K. offers to lower income families. New insulation can sure get expensive! A number of years ago, my husband and I built a new house. We used spray foam insulation and it’s one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. It’s saved us money every since!

  7. Loft insulation has saved us a fortune on our energy bills, but the thing that caught my attention most in your post was the cat sleeping on the radiator! 😀

  11. It’s great that you can get free insulation and also something in return.
    I did my home years ago and got points with Tesco.
    It helped cut the bills down hugely for us

  12. This is a great incentive for people to have their homes insulated. It not only saves you money in the long run, it also helps the government save on the cost to generate electricity.

  14. Such useful information. We have loft insulation, but I’m not sure about the walls, although our house was built in 1991 so shouldn’t be too bad (hopefully!)
