Free cavity wall and loft insulation*
By warmwell | Tuesday, June 12, 2012, 11:38
Grants are now available for loft and cavity wall insulation! If your loft has no insulation or it hasn't been topped up in several years, Wiltshire Warm and Well may be able to top it up for free. If you have cavity walls these could also be insulated for free using a grant. You no longer need to be on a qualifying benefit or over 70 to get the work done for free!
Insulation for free*
If you have solid walls, there are also grants available for internal and external wall insulation. The level of grant funding is dependent on your circumstances, the size of the property and the main source of heating within the home. There are currently grants up to £14,995 so there has never been a better time to take advantage of the offer.
Since 2001 the scheme has helped 34,000 householders stay warm and well in their homes. The scheme is the Local Authority approved insulation scheme working on behalf of the seven Councils in Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire and now also in Wiltshire. The installers for the scheme will visit your home to complete a free, no obligation survey. The Energy Saving Trust estimates a yearly saving of around £175 after loft insulation is installed and up to £135 after cavity wall insulation is installed (based on 3 bed semi-detached house). The grants will not be available indefinitely so please act now.
