How to insulate your pipes

A guide to insulating your loft and exposed pipes and water tanks

1. Insulating your loft - or topping up any insulation you already have - will help to heat your home more efficiently, save energy and reduce your energy bills.

2. Easy steps you can take to help prevent pipes freezing in winter are insulating the water pipes and the water tank.
