It’s a week since the cavity walls of my house were insulated. On the second day I had to turn the heating down significantly, because the house was too hot and I’ve not had to turn it back up since, even after a couple of nights of  hard frost.

So, if there are grants available to you for this in your area go for it! I had to pay £189 towards the cost, but I reckon that’s going to be recovered in savings on electricity ( the house has under-floor storage heating) within the year. ( the estimate was 16-18 months)

I got the information from the Energy Saving Trust http://www.est.org.uk/myhome/, and grants are available to everyone, irrespective of your income.

THIS HAS BEEN A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
