Cost savings from insulation

The highest percentage of heat lost from your home is 35% lost through the walls, particularly through stone walls, and through the roof (25%) so concentrate on these areas if you only have a limited budget. You have paid for this heat so why let it escape to the street?

From which parts of your home do you lose the most heat?

Walls – 35%

Roof – 25%

Through gaps e.g. doors – 15%

Through the floor – 15%

Windows – 10%

If you have very little budget but want to make a difference concentrate on draught proofing which you can do yourself.
