Energy-efficient DIY home improvements have become an increasing concern for Britons, it has been claimed.
James Pugh, associate director at DJD Architects, revealed that many DIY homeowners are looking for improvements that are good for the environment and will also lead to reduced fuel bills.
Mr Pugh explained that the issue of home energy efficiency is "definitely much more on the public conscience".
He added: "All the media is full of sustainability this and that and building regulations and the Code for Sustainable Homes."
Furthermore, Mr Pugh said that there is "recognition of value against cost" among DIY homeowners, with consumers willing to spend more cash to achieve a more attractive look.
According to the Guardian, loft insulation is one of the easiest ways for DIY enthusiasts to save money on energy bills.
Homeowners are able to save about £150 annually simply by installing insulation to their loft, the newspaper said.
