Millions of pounds’ worth of energy escapes from our homes every year just because they are poorly insulated! So insulating your home properly is the best way to not only reduce your energy bills but to also stay warmer for longer in those chilly winter months – the best news? It doesn’t need to cost the earth.
The basic problem
So how does the heat escape and the cold air get in? There are several different areas in your home that is prone to heat seepage, places like the roof and the walls are amongst the most common. Heat escapes through a process called conduction, this means the heat can move through walls and metal via the movement of fluids or convection. Convection can be explained easily; it occurs when the heated air rises, allowing cooler air to replace it, making the room colder. Other ways heat can escape is via draughts, radiation and evaporation.
