Whether you’re looking to buy a new build, refurbish your existing home or just looking to renovate a room in your home, heat loss is one of the biggest considerations when it comes to making your home warm and cheaper to run.

The less heat loss the less heating you will require, which will save energy and money and result in lower heating bills. Heat loss is where heat escapes from inside the building to outside, typically through the roof, walls, windows and floor.

A home with a high heat loss costs more money to run, but the good news is that there are few simple steps you can take to reduce the energy loss.

Improved insulation

Improving the insulation of your home is the main way to battle heat loss through floors, walls, windows and roofs. You can either install more insulation or ensure that there are no gaps in the existing insulation as adequate insulation keeps heat loss to a minimum. This upgrade installation could be done free of charge if you qualify.

Floor insulation

For floors it is important to ensure sufficient insulation between the ground and the floor surface. In new buildings, sufficient insulation is installed during the construction and in older buildings, insulation layers can be laid on existing floor surfaces.

Wall insulation

To reduce heat loss from walls, cavity wall insulation can be installed. This involves blowing insulating material into the gap between the brick and the inside wall. Care should be taken to ensure that no gaps are left in the insulation. The use of cavity wall insulation reduces air circulation and therefore minimises heat loss through walls.
