Eco-Retrofit for Householders 3: Insulation

Retrofitting your home with insulation, draught-proofing and upgraded ventilation and heating systems can make it healthier, warmer and cheaper to heat. You'll be doing your bit for the planet, too. Come along to this free webinar series to find out more and bring any questions you have for our experts to answer!
Walls, floors, and roofs are all major areas of heat loss in uninsulated, or poorly insulated houses. For successful retrofit, the fabric elements of a house need to be well insulated. However, there are many different materials that can be used to achieve insulation, and many pitfalls that can hold you back from achieving the level of energy efficiency that you desire.
