– Reduced energy bills: By sealing up heat escapes, insulation measures can significantly lower heating costs, saving households up to £300 per year on their energy bills.

– Improved comfort: A well-insulated home stays warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, providing a more comfortable living environment. 

– Reduced carbon emissions: Minimizing heat loss from homes helps conserve energy and contributes to lowering the country’s overall carbon footprint.

– Enhanced property value: Proper insulation can increase the value of a property, making it more attractive to potential buyers.

What do I get if my application is successful?

  • – Cavity wall insulation: Filling the gaps between walls to prevent heat loss.

    – Solid wall insulation: Applying insulation to the inside or outside of solid walls.

    – Loft insulation: Adding insulation to the loft to prevent heat loss from the roof.

    – Flat or pitched roof insulation: Installing insulation in flat or pitched roofs to minimize heat loss.

A surveyor will assess the property for the most suitable type and level of insulation required. The householder may also receive thermostats for free as part of the scheme.




Why is insulation important?

Insulation is a crucial component of any home, playing a vital role in maintaining a comfortable and energy-efficient living environment. 

It acts as a barrier against heat transfer, preventing excessive heat loss in the winter and unwanted heat gain in the summer. By effectively sealing up air gaps and preventing heat from escaping, insulation helps to regulate the temperature within a home, ensuring consistent comfort throughout the year.

The benefits of proper insulation extend beyond mere comfort. By minimizing heat loss, insulation significantly reduces the demand for heating and cooling appliances, leading to lower energy consumption and associated costs. This eco-friendly approach not only saves households money on their energy bills but also contributes to a greener environment by reducing carbon emissions.
