In the whole world and particularly the homeowners want to go for green improvements in their houses. This is to make their homes energy efficient. Many surveys are conducted to get the acknowledgement of the homeowners regarding the green improvement. This survey delivers the results that more than 50% homeowners agree on this issue and they want to have the green features for their homes.

Cost effective ways of making your home energy efficient

In modern era the wall insulation is becoming trendy in Edinburgh. There are two kinds of walls for insulation. Edinburgh buildings have two kind of walls, solid or cavity. Cavity walls have more insulation because there are two walls gap in it. By this insulating process the walls have been filled with rock wool or spun glass fibers. Moreover this is an inexpensive process. It is very surprising that 33% heating is lost by the insulated walls. It is possible to insulate the solid walls but it is expensive. Internal insulation technique is used in the solid walls but it decreases the room proportions. On the other hand the external insulation is also possible. Solid foams and polystyrene are fitted externally. This would increase your EPC rate.

Roof insulation has also equal significance. Approximately the 25% heat releases from the way of roof. Roof insulation is cheaper than other wall insulation.
