People looking to obtain cheap energy have been advised by one group that renovating their homes is an excellent way to save money on gas and electricity bills.
The National Insulation Association (NIA) observed that by fitting adequate lagging to a home's loft and walls, householders could save anywhere between £185 and £635 per year, depending on the type of insulation installed.
Chief executive of the group Neil Marshall stated that the improvement is the "single most effective method" of retaining heat and can provide cheaper energy bills for many years to come.
This was echoed by Phillip Sellwood, chief executive of the Energy Saving Trust, who said: "Everyone can do their bit to reduce their consumption and start saving money on their energy bills - and insulation is the ideal place to start."
The NIA added there are many discounts and assistance schemes available from sources such as the government and local authorities that people can take advantage of to help with the upfront cost of the renovations.
Recently, energy supplier E.ON teamed up with Derby City Council to offer £6.6 million in funding to help householders in the area improve their energy efficiency.
