  • Saving Energy
    • Loft insulation
      • Fibreglass wool reduces conduction through the ceiling into roof spaces
    • Hot water tank jacket
      • reduces conduction
    • Double glazing
      • Two layers of glass with gap between reduces conduction
    • Draught-proofing
      • strips of foam and plastic around doors and windows reduces convection
    • Thick curtains
      • reduces conduction and radiation through windows
    • Cavity walls and insulation
      • Two layers of brick with gap between helps reduce conduction. Insulating foam between bricks stops convection too.
