Leaky, draughty roof or loft space? Poor insulation? Now’s the time to address it. Don’t wait until winter. We take a look at why it’s important to ensure your home is sufficiently insulated now rather than waiting until the temperatures drop and how you can save money with insulation.
Did you know that approximately a quarter of your homes heat is lost through the roof? Yes that’s true. In fact, data from the Energy Saving Trust suggests that you could be saving £100’s of pounds a year on energy bills simply by upgrading your insulation. This could be by having a thermally insulated flat roof, replacement cladding to the exterior of your property or more adequate loft insulation.
Continuous Increase in the Cost of Living
With energy prices rising, and continuing to rise, many are struggling to keep up with the increased cost of living. This isn’t helped by increased fuel prices and a rise in interest rates. The cost of everyday items are going up and there seems to be no end in sight.
Add to this the cost of materials increasing and many companies, us included, will have no choice but to put prices up in the not too distant future. So, what does this mean? Well, if you are considering improving the insulation in your roof space, replacing your flat roof or having new uPVC cladding, now is the time to do it.
Fix That Insulation or Leaky Roof Now
Don’t wait for the energy prices to go up more, fix that leaky draughty roof or replace that old cladding now and save money on your heating bills for years to come. While you will have to consider the initial outlay of a new roof or insulation, your pocket will thank you for it in the money you save over the coming winters in fuel prices.
Not only that, but a vulnerable flat roof that is in need of attention, could mean more expensive damage within your home. Left too long and the water will find its way in to your home and you could face larger bills.
Imagine coming into winter and finding that not only have your energy bills increased but also you are having to pay for remedial work inside the home as well as a new roof!
Why Put it Off?
We don’t want to be all doom and gloom but we want to ensure that you get the maximum benefit from your roof and home insulation. Having the work done now will ensure that you aren’t wasting unnecessary energy during the winter. It will also mean that you get the work done at a lower cost than waiting until the autumn.
There are many savings to be had by getting your house in order now. As you look to save money on home, car and life insurance, get the cheapest energy provider and make other savings, this could be the most significant.
