How much money can loft insulation save you?

Having your Loft properly insulated can save you up to 40% on your Energy bill. The insulation keeps the heat in and the cold out, so with Winter approaching, now is a good time to think about  adding more insulation your loft or attic and making sure there is enough there if you feel you already have insulation.Loft insulation should pay for itself in reduced heating cost over its 40 year lifespan. With the current energy crisis there is no better time to get your loft properly insulated.It is not always necessary to remove old insulation, especially on newer homes. Homes built before 1970 will probably need new attic insulation because it is old and inefficient. Sometimes pests can cause problems and move or destroy the insulation.
As the cost of energy has increased so rapidly recently, it is now more important than ever to ensure you property is efficient at keeping the heat in.It is reported that a typical household will have an average energy bill rise to £3,549 a year on 1 October for a 2-3 bed house with 2-3 people. How much you actually pay depends on the amount you use and some home owners will pay more.This link shows more details about the average cost per household based on the size of house.There are plans to reduce bills for households using less energy at peak times but this is only a plan and may not be possible for some people.
