The National Trust is to insulate all of its castles and estates in an attempt to make their castles and properties more environmentally friendly.

Over the coming years, many of the National Trusts properties, which span the UK, will undergo renovations. One of the key aspects of this will be a focus on improving the environmental impact of running these historic buildings.

Stephen Kane, deputy head of buildings at the National Trust said the "mammoth task" will include roofing repairs, measures to save water, draft proofing and double glazing.

One other notable quote from Mr Kane was "It will also provide inspiration for visitors renovating their own homes."

Les Yates, Marketing Manager at Local Quoter agrees, saying "We get enquiries from many people looking to upgrade their home. Not because it requires attention or repair, just because they fancy a change of look."

"This can include changing the style of windows, upgrading the roofing fascias or soffits, or just a bit of re-decorating" he continued.

With many properties in the UK in need of some form of additional insulation, and the increased cost in energy, now is a perfect time to make the neccessary upgrades to your house. It isn't just about the environmental impact of your home, it's also about making your home as cost efficient as possible and therefore saving you money.
