Thinksulation® is offering five lucky readers of a new magazine, At Home With Sarah Beeny, the opportunity to win an insulation makeover for their homes. The recent announcement of yet more energy price rises, and the Government’s steadfast determination to meet its Kyoto targets, has made home insulation a hot topic. Readers contacting Thinksulation® for information about how they can benefit from insulation will be entered into a free draw to win one of five Knauf Insulation Home Insulation Transformations.
Latest in the popular At Home® series of lifestyle magazines, At Home With Sarah Beeny is an essential guide to getting on and moving up the property ladder. The magazine is aimed at those who want to have-a-go themselves and provides a collection of articles offering expert advice on all aspects of ‘DIY property development’. And, of course, there’s no better person to give such advice than Sarah! The success of her prime time Channel 4 programme, Property Ladder, and the two best-selling books that accompanied the series, have made her a household name. Self-taught and self-financed, her determination and success is an inspiration to those who are, or are thinking about, having a go themselves.
Insulation is fast becoming a hot topic within the building industry thanks to continuing increases in the cost of energy and the Government’s determination to meet the targets set by the Kyoto Protocol. Insulation can offer an immediate reduction in home energy bills and the Government has identified insulating cavity walls and lofts as the two, single most effective ways of achieving domestic energy efficiency. Incredibly, installing just the recommended level of insulation in all homes in the UK would cut CO2 emissions by as much as 40 per cent which, in itself, would be sufficient to meet the Kyoto targets.
So, with homeowners becoming increasingly aware of rising domestic energy bills and the Government ‘encouraging’ greater thermal efficiency via the Building Regulations, insulation should be a high priority item for any property developer – big or small!
Thinksulation® aims to show homeowners the practical and financial benefits of home insulation, encourage its use and how this, in turn, can also help the environment. A light-hearted DVD, At Home with the Warmingtons, introduces the subject, highlights its importance and shows how insulation can benefit a typical family. Practical information is also available including, for example, details about the Government subsidies for cavity wall and loft insulation that are now available to everyone. And, for those wondering just how much it will cost – and save – to have their insulation system upgraded, free surveys and a no obligation quote are also on offer.
At Home with Sarah Beeny is widely available at just £3.50. Readers who contact Thinksulation® for information will be entered into the draw for an opportunity to win one of the five Home Insulation Transformations Knauf Insulation are offering. The draw closes on 31 December 2004, takes place on 7 January 2005 and the lucky winners will be notified by 14 January 2005.
