Householders looking for cheap gas and electricity might be able to lower their fuel bills by fitting lagging to their property.
The National Insulation Association (NIA) noted climate week - which runs from March 12th to 18th and encourages people to consider how they can go green - is a good opportunity to perform this renovation.
A typical dwelling can save carbon and cut its domestic energy bills by between £185 and £310 by insulating the loft and wall space, with these savings rising to as much as £635 when solid walls are upgraded, the organisation claimed.
More than 60 per cent of a property's central heating escapes through the roof and walls if the structure is not lagged, it continued.
Therefore, people should "think smart and install insulation", the NIA argued.
It had previously pointed out that the feature could also reduce the number of Brits in fuel poverty, which is currently reaching almost seven million.
Chairman of the group Neil Marshall said: "There is no better time to make your home more efficient, comfortable and cost effective."
