Insulation is an "ideal upgrade" for people who want to cut down expenditure and are looking for cheap energy bills.
According to Bev Coombe, membership and communications manager for the National Insulation Association, padding walls, lofts and cavities in a home "greatly reduces the amount of carbon being released into the environment".
She explained that the structure of the property will determine what kind of insulation would best work, with cavity wall, loft insulation and draught proofing the ideal options for older homes.
"Rural properties without cavities can save around £360 per year by having solid wall insulation installed, with more savings being made if they also incorporate loft insulation and draught proofing," Ms Coombe added.
Her comments come after Department of Energy and Climate Change figures showed cheap gas and electricity users are wasting up to £100 a year on escaped energy because only 57 per cent of homes have properly insulated lofts.
