Heating improvements 'add value'

People wanting to improve the value of their home should improve its central heating system, according to one trade website.

Installing double glazing and ensuring the property is well insulated, either with cavity wall insulation or loft insulation, can all help to boost a home’s value, according to MyHammer.

Such improvements can also help to reduce energy bills, especially in older houses, said Jim Hustwit, country manager at the search engine.

His comments come after another website reported that increasing numbers of homeowners are planning to carry out home improvements on their homes as confidence returns to the property market.
