Thermal insulation 'best way to be green'
Installing thermal insulation is a cheap and easy way for people to make their homes more environmentally-friendly, it has been suggested.
In an interview with the BBC, Jonas Grist explained that having the product fitted can reduce heat loss and make a home "more pleasant to be in".
"Insulation is the cheapest and most effective way of making a building green, because you're using less energy to begin with," he explained.
People were advised that those who have wall insulation or lay lagging in their loft will lower their power consumption and therefore reduce their carbon footprint.
The project manager for Suffolk Green Buildings Network's comments came after it was announced that English Heritage planned to open ten green buildings in Suffolk to the public.
From September 9th to the 12th people can discover how the properties have been modified to help the environment.
The open days allow individuals to view sites that are usually closed to the public or charge an entry fee for free.
