Here are their top five suggestions on how you can ensure your home stays warm this Autumn and Winter.

Firstly, improved insulation can make a huge difference in your property’s ability to keep the heat in.

While it can be expensive there are a number of ways to improve insulation, with different materials and designs for your loft, walls and floorboards.

Cavity wall insulation can cost between £400 and £800 while internal wall could be £4,000 to £15,000 and solid external wall insulation is priced between £7,000 and £20,000.

Next, check your windows. You may need to fix or even replace them to help prevent the heat from escaping your house.

You can take a DIY approach to identify and solve a draught or hire a tradesperson to take a look.

If you decide to replace your existing windows with double- or triple-glazed windows, expect to pay between £200 and £1,200 per window.

Dealing with damp issues in your property can help keep it warmer due to the effect it has on your heating system, forcing it to work harder to achieve a certain temperature for rooms in your home. Too much moisture in your home can make your central heating less efficient.

A common fix for extensive issues is installing a damp proofing course, which will likely cost between £400 and £1,200.

Other potential small scale fixes include improving ventilation by adding extractor fans, creating better air circulation by keeping a gap between furniture and the wall and using moisture-resistant paint or wallpaper. You could also consider adding a dehumidifier to your home.

However, these are a short term solution, it’s best to deal with the root cause of the issue.

Having your boiler serviced annually is important to ensure it works efficiently and safely.

This will keep you and everyone in your home safe by reducing the risk of a carbon monoxide as well as keep your boiler working better for longer.

Finally, look at ways to minimise draughts with excluders for doors, a DIY draught-proofing kit, lining your letterbox, sealing skirting and floor board cracks.

Be sure to consult a professional if there is any doubt about what exact measures to take.
