There are around 27 (26.9) million homes in Great Britain; more than half do not have enough insulation.

Most easy-to-treat cavities have now been insulated, and nearly all the remaining lofts would only benefit from topping up of existing insulation. However, only around 2% of solid wall properties have so far been tackled.
