Get Cosy With Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire
Now the weather has turned chilly you need to get your insulation sorted out.
Frozen pipes can quickly lead to a whole world of DIY-related disasters. The good news? Some tactically-applied loft insulation might just save the day.
"The quickest, easiest and cheapest way to stop your pipes freezing in your loft is to remove the loft insulation below the pipes and place it on top of them. The heat from the rooms below keeps them from freezing and the insulation above maintains your loft cover.
The average home owner simply doesn't realise how much money can be saved through insulation. "Your home loses a third of its heat through the walls, so insulating wall cavities could save you around £135 a year, and insulating your loft could also save you up to £175," points out Chris Brain at British Gas.
"Even if you have insulation already, some people's loft insulation is only two inches thick, which is only about 20% of the recommended thickness. Topping up this insulation alone could reduce your bills by around £40 each year."
