O'Connell's Drywall Contractors Ltd advises householders to insulate homes as energy regulator predicts higher energy bills

Date: Fri 8th March 2013

With the recent news from Ofgem that householders are to face much higher energy bills for years to come and an average dual fuel bill in the UK now £1420 a year, O'Connell's Drywall Contractors Ltd is urging householders to protect themselves against future price rises by insulating without delay.

An astounding 60% of heat can be lost through uninsulated walls and roofs; but with the right measures put in place, householders could be making huge savings on their fuel bills. The Energy Saving Trust reports that by simply installing cavity wall and loft insulation savings of up to £320* per year can be made.

John O'Connell commented: "Home insulation is the single most effective method of saving money on domestic energy bills, with savings continuing year on year! According to the Energy Saving Trust, installing Cavity Wall and Loft Insulation together costs on average £800. This means they can pay for themselves in less than 3 years and then provide a return on investment of around 40% per year thereafter!"

John O'Connell added: "Not only will householders be making a savvy investment for their financial future but they will also be saving carbon from day one and have a more comfortable and warm home too."

Householders are advised to contact O'Connell's Drywall Contractors Ltd today, who as members of the National Insulation Association (NIA), can advise them on the most appropriate and efficient method possible of insulating their home.
