As winter spreads its cool fingers across the country, many families will find that the money they spend on power beginning to increase.

Of course this is an expected phenomenon, but there are ways to make sure that your family is protected from the cold in winter - and the heat in summer - without using power inefficiently and feeling the bite of electricity prices.

One of the best ways to achieve this is to make sure that your home is insulated properly - most of the energy we use to heat or cool our homes can leak out without insulation.

If you are going to add insulation to your home and you are not renovating or building, the costs and time taken can vary, depending on how easily the insulation expert can access the spaces to be filled.

Some types of filler can add sound-proofing to your home, a handy application for a house that contains pets or many children!

A warm and dry home is also a healthier one - proper insulation can reduce mould and mildew build-up by cutting out condensation on windows and walls.

Your family could experience less coughing and cold-related symptoms this winter - and your wallet will thank you for it in the long-run.
