Improving Listed Properties and Period Homes--Guest Post

Today I am welcoming a Guest Post by Peter Boucher.  Thank you Peter!
A Top Tip for Improving Listed Properties and Period Homes

One of the best ways in which you can improve on your home is to make it more eco friendly, and this will allow you to save on energy and reduce your bills, whilst at the same time saving the environment. This is of course something that all home owners want to do, and on top of all this making your home eco friendly also makes it more attractive to buyers if you ever decide to sell. One of the best ways in which you can reduce your energy bills is through insulation, and this is a wise investment that could save you around £400 on your energy bills each year, so you can see why so many people are now looking at cavity and loft insulation.


Insulation is great because it keeps your house warm during the cold winter nights, and then during the summer it keeps it nice and cool. This is achieved because the tiny pockets of air minimise the amount of heat that passes through the layer, so in the winter the heat stays inside whilst in the summer it will be outside. There are a few different types of insulation, and the best kind for you will depend on the type of property you own. If you live in a listed property or one with special architectural features then options like external wall insulation and loft insulation will not work well for you, but there is one type which is perfect and will help to drastically reduce your energy bills.


Save a Huge Amount Each Year

This is known as internal wall insulation, and this is particularly good as it will not alter the outside of your property. This is the reason why lots of period properties and listed properties are opting for internal wall insulation, and with companies like Mark Group you could save around £460 each year. This is a huge amount, and this makes it the smart investment to make as it will not take too long to pay for itself, and you will of course be helping to save the planet too.


For any listed property looking to improve on their home then this is the best way as it will reduce your bills, save the environment, and make your home a pleasant place to be no matter if it is the middle of winter or on a hot summers day.
