Since heat rises it follows that heat loss through the roof is a large contributor to energy waste in your house. By installing modern 290mm thick insulation in your loft space you could save up to 25% of your heating bill but perhaps more realistically by 20%. By upgrading old thin insulation you may also be able to save an additional 7 or 8% of you bill.
