It's Better OFF @ Home - Loft

Insulate your home. Both loft and cavity wall insulation provide significant savings on bills, usually paying for itself over a couple of years. View further information on insulation and grants available in your area.

An extra money saver for your existing hot water cylinder is to fit an insulating jacket. If you fit a kite marked insulation jacket (75mm (3”) thick) around your hot water tank, you could save around £35 per year. These jackets are usually less than £20 and are available from almost any hardware store and it will pay for itself within a very short period of time.

Insulate hot water pipe work leading from you boiler and hot water tank. Usually the best time to do this is during renovation works, but any pipe work you can do will always help.
