Cocoon, run by the United Sustainable Energy Agency, is now able to offer free loft and cavity wall insulation to householders across England.
Householders should take advantage of the free insulation while they can, before the government funding which makes this offer possible is withdrawn. This is expected to happen in the autumn of 2012.
Do your energy bills seem to be on the rise? Having your home insulated is one way to bring your heating costs down. According to the Energy Saving Trust, the average gas-heated, semi-detached home with three bedrooms could save up to £135 every year, just by insulating your cavity walls. Householders are being urged to act quickly to protect themselves from predicted future energy bill increases.
All homeowners and private tenants are eligible regardless of their age or whether or not they are on benefits. If your house is larger than average for the number of bedrooms, or if you require extras such as scaffolding or core vents then you may be asked to pay a charge. Also, if you already have a certain level of loft insulation you may be charged to top it up. However, you will not have to pay anything until you have agreed to it, after having a free, no obligation survey.
If you are not sure whether you have cavity wall insulation; or you’re not sure whether your loft insulation is up to the recommended level, just contact Cocoon to arrange a free, no obligation survey.
