The tips came from which stated that properties without insulation can save on average £150 per year on fuel costs if insulation is installed at the recommended depth of 270mm.

"Not only is installing loft insulation a pretty straightforward job, but it will boost your home's energy efficiency rating too. And even if you've already installed loft insulation, by topping it up to 270mm you could save on average an additional £45 year-on-year," it stated.
