Someone in the industry has just explained to me that now is a great time to have your loft or cavity wall insulation done and you can probably get it for free.
This is because the energy companies have a pot of money they have to spend on energy efficiency measures in the next few months. They are obliged by the government to spend a certain amount of money in this area, and the scheme is changing in a few months. Which means the current pot has to be spent or they get fined.
If your loft is not insulated, or if it only has a couple of inches in it - now is the time to go for it. The recommended amount is about 10 inches. They are so keen to get people to sign up that some offers include clearing or part boarding the loft.
Cavity wall insulation is the other big way to save money on energy bills, and this is also being funded. So if you have been putting this off, then worth getting on with it this summer.
