Taking steps to add insulation to a home can be an effective DIY project, it has been suggested.
As environmental issues are increasingly at the fore of the housing market, Ratedpeople.com acknowledges that improving insulation in a property will help it to retain heat more effectively, particularly as the colder winter months begin to draw in.
Ottokar Rosenberger, sales and marketing director for Ratedpeople.com, states: "It is advisable for homeowners to look at investing in insulation for their homes, as a method of improving its energy efficiency and also as a way of saving on heating bills in the long term."
He goes on to point out that taking steps to boost a property’s energy rating can also help to increase its overall value and attract prospective buyers.
Last month, Scottish and Southern Energy spokesperson Craig Thompson told The Journal that the installation of solar lighting can help people to cut their energy bills.
