Attics
Uninsulated or poorly insulated attics should be insulated to a depth in excess of 800 mm. When insulating attics particular care should be taken to protect water tanks and pipes from freezing and to ensure adequate ventilation of the roof space.

External Walls
Properly insulated external walls provide considerable energy savings. If the house has suitable cavity walls, the application of insulation within the cavity is generally the most cost-effective solution. This involves blowing or pumping the insulation into the cavity through holes drilled in the outer surface.

Internal Walls
When looking at internal wall insulation, for solid walls, insulation must be applied either internally or externally. Internal insulation involves fixing a layer of insulation to the internal surfaces of external walls, usually with a plasterboard finish. Special care must again be taken to install a "vapour check" (e.g. polythene sheeting) to seal the insulation against humid air penetration from within the house.
