If your British home was built before the 1920s, it likely has solid walls instead of cavity walls. Insulating solid walls can significantly reduce heat loss, save money on heating bills, and lower your carbon footprint. Look for an alternating brick pattern outside the house to identify solid walls. Solid wall insulation may be more expensive than cavity wall insulation, but the savings on heating bills are more significant.
