If you’ve decided to give your home a spring clean, then it might be time to consider making some changes to increase energy efficiency while you’re at it.

Just because it’s getting a little bit warmer now, doesn’t mean it’s not the time to be preparing yourself for the next incarnation of the ‘Beast from the East’. In fact, it’s just the moment to provide long-term reassurance that when the cold snaps back again, you’ll be ready. 

There are a number of measures you can tie in with an all-round clean up that have the potential to make your home more sustainable and knock some pounds of that energy bill.

Much more comfort

Generally, one of the main focuses for spring cleaning is reducing clutter. Unburdening yourself of unwanted items taking up space may well clear the head enough to consider energy makeover options. This could be especially true in the loft, where sorting through the dusty boxes and reducing and recycling provides a perfect opportunity to check your loft insulation levels.

If you haven’t checked before, it may be that there’s no insulation installed at all, or that it has been in there a long time and needs replacing. If it’s easy to access, not damp and you haven’t got a flat roof, you could do it yourself.

You can save anything from £195 to £400 a year on your fuel bills through having the right levels of loft insulation, compared to having none. A top-up of insulation levels from 120mm to 270mm, if required, also makes a big difference to home comfort.
