Helping UK homeowners make the right heating choices

More households are having loft insulation

New Government figures shows an increasing number of households are choosing to have insulation.

According to the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) the level of households having loft insulation installed is on the rise.

As of January this year, 12.9 million residential properties had loft insulation installed that is 125 mm thick or more. The report claims this is a rise of 310,000 since October 2010.

The news means that more people in the UK are benefiting from lower central heating bills and also reduced carbon emissions.

The DECC also noted that many people are embarking on DIY projects in order to improve their homes. The number of DIY installations has jumped up by 61 per cent.

A total of 171,000 households  have installed loft insulation themselves, while 112,000 sought the skills of a professional.

The number of cavity wall insulation has also seen a vast increase of 140,000 to reach 10.6 million since October 2010.
