There is now information about thermal wallpaper and thermal paint as well. This is particularly useful if your home does not have cavity walls, which is often the case in older properties.

Many people may need a new immersion heater or new central heating, and there is a leaflet from which readers can find out about eligibility under the Government Warm Front Scheme.
