In the midst of the most preferred home upgrades are loft, cavity wall & underfloor insulation, as stated in the survey of 1,000 homeowners.
The results of the report also point out that three-in-five of those people living in a home valued at £600,000 or more plan to use the government’s Green Homes Grant scheme as oppsed to one-in-five homeowners with a property estimated between £101,000 to £200,000.
The survey also revealed almost a third will make these upgrades to make their home more comfortable for them & their family, whereas almost 27% think these ‘green’ improvements would make their property more attractive to future buyers.
