 Key Tips for Utilising Insulation / Energy

The level of insulation in walls can be increased in a number of ways.  The length of time it takes to recuperate these costs is dependent on a number of key factors including the thickness, quality and type of existing insulation.  The most popular systems of wall insulation are polystyrene beads (injected into a cavity wall), blown mineral cellulose fibre or rigid external insulation (outsulation) complete with a render or brick finish.  A specialist member of the King Group team can advise the homeowner on the most effective and suitable methods for their home.

A well-insulated attic can save the homeowner up to 30% on their home heating bill.  If the attic / loft insulation is currently less than 200mm then additional insulation should be added to bring it up to this level.  There are a wide variety of suitable materials which include polystyrene, multi-layered foil, rock wool, mineral wool, and cellulose fibre.  A member of the King Group team will advise you on which insulation would best suit your requirements.

To keep the water hotter for a longer period of time a lagging jacket on your hot water cylinder will remedy this and will pay for itself within 2-3 months.

In terms of replacing windows – double glazing is a must.  Much heat loss occurs from windows – this is especially the case if the windows are single glazed.  If the double glazing contains argon fill and low-emissivity glass then significant energy savings will be achieved.

Keep curtains closed at night and ensure that the curtains are placed behind the radiator to stop heat loss.
