The winter has arrived which means that it is getting increasingly colder and as the weather conditions worsen, more and more people are choosing to stay indoors in the comfort of their own home.

Unfortunately a lot of individuals find that their heating bills rise steeply at this time of the year and -with the financial climate still being relatively tumultuous- paying expensive bills is a worrying prospect that they are looking to avoid.

Often high energy bills can result in homeowners choosing to turn off their heating for long periods of time and needing to layer up for the sake of saving money. However, rather than having to stay in a freezing cold environment there is an alternative solution: additional insulation.

This is the most popular time of the year for people to start considering whether or not to invest in roof and wall insulation. Heat rises which means that if you are currently living in a building that does not have any roof insulation you could be losing as much as 25% of heat through the top of your house. Simply adding roof insulation can save this energy and subsequently reduce your bills by up to £250 annually, likewise, wall insulation is estimated to save up to £140 per year.

While it makes more sense for individuals to have their insulation installed and replaced in the summer time when the general need is much lower; inevitably most property owners do not consider insulation until temperatures drop and they are suffering.

Therefore if you are a company that installs insulation you will expect this to be the busiest time of the year for you. Here at SJS Building supplies we provide high quality insulation supplies to businesses that provide insulation installation as well as supplies for the domestic market.
