There are a variety of methods that can help to make a property more energy efficient, from double glazing to new boilers, and people should also ensure that their home insurance covers any renovations.

Government schemes such as the Green Deal mean there could be more funding to make homes greener, as consumers are becoming more aware of the benefits of owning energy efficient properties.

The Green Building Store believes that more people are contemplating ways in which they can make their homes more energy efficient.

Chayley Collis, marketing manager for the group, said: "There might be legislation coming in the future so that rented accommodation has a minimum level of insulation."

There are a wide number of low-cost measures to minimise draughts and the ensuing heat loss from buildings, Ms Collis noted.

Also, she advised that the Energy Saving Trust is a great place to find out about how to savings can been made on heating and fuel bills.
