To understand the current state of home insulation in early 2022, we teamed up with iRed® to provide personalised external thermographic inspections of properties.
We surveyed 72 properties and the results are summarised here:

The best ways to stay warm (and save money) this winter
Our homes may be old, but they do not have to remain cold if we take matters into our own hands. Rupert Gregory, 37, bought his Victorian end-of-terrace house in Twyford, Hampshire, seven years ago. “When I bought the house, the energy performance certificate [EPC] graded the energy efficiency at an F, which is very low,” said the IT consultant, who lives in the home with his wife, Gemma, 37, and daughters Alice, 3, and Imogen, 6. “It’s now a B.”
So how did he transform his home? By hiring a thermal imaging camera. “We had already invested in the roof and cavity-wall insulation and had the windows replaced. We’d done all the big-ticket items. The thermal camera helped to pick out all those little bits that we missed.” With the camera, Gregory detected draughts coming in from under the skirting boards and from the front door, and plugged the gaps himself. “I was paying about £125 a month for gas and electricity. After the works this went down to £100,” he said.
