Insulate as much as your budget allows
If you’re passionate about going green, the best thing you can do for your home is to get your insulation in order. Insulating a home can be done on a variety of budgets. You might choose to seal up the gaps around your windows and doors, or you may have the cash available to deck out both your loft and basement (which are very prone to letting in drafts).
Don’t forget, most of the heat in your home escapes through your roof, so sorting out your loft should be a top priority. To save money, you might be able to execute a bit of DIY, providing the space is easily accessible. And there are plenty of eco-friendly materials available, such as recycled wool.
