WITH the Met Office warning that the cold weather could last until the end of April, the National Insulation Association (NIA) is urging householders to protect themselves by insulating without delay.

The NIA says that up to 60 per cent of heat can be lost through non-insulated walls and roofs.

However, with the right measures put in place, householders could be making their home as warm and comfortable as possible and reduce fuel bills by insulating their homes from the cold.

The savings to be made on fuel bills are significant - by simply installing cavity wall and loft insulation, the Energy Saving Trust says savings of up to PS320 per year can be made. The savings are even greater for insulating solid walls and lofts - up to PS655 per year.

Neil Marshall, chief executive of the NIA, said: "Home insulation is the single, most effective method to stop heat escaping and save money on domestic fuel bills, with savings continuing year on year.

"Not only will householders have a more comfortable and warm home, but they will be saving carbon from day one."

An NIA member can advise householders on the most appropriate and efficient method possible of insulating their home.
