The single most important thing you can do to save energy in your home is improve your insulation. Insulation holds the heat inside the house, reducing the need to use central heating systems or other heaters. A house loses about 40% of its heat through the loft space and walls, so good loft insulation can make an enormous difference to your heating costs. Don't be put off by the cost of installing insulation, as the savings on fuel bills will recoup that expenditure in just a few years.
