Many properties in rural areas will now be eligible for free insulation, thanks to new funding sources.
Earlier this year, five of the ‘big six’ energy suppliers announced that they would be making major increases to their prices. In an effort to lessen the impact on consumers the government have announced a new package of plans to bring energy prices down, allowing the energy companies to pass the savings on to consumers.
Five of the six big energy companies recently announced that their prices will be going up this winter. A new report from National Audit Office suggests that this trend could continue for another 17 years. The cost of gas, electricity and water is expected to increase at a higher rate than inflation, and lower income households will be the most affected.
Just a quick reminder that there are still grants available for a free A-rated energy efficient boiler.
As of 1st April 2005, any newly fitted gas-fired boiler in England or Wales must be a condensing boiler. Condensing boilers are modern and highly energy efficient. This article explains how they work and why they are so efficient, as well as how to go about getting funding to get your old boiler replaced.
Since the CERT funding scheme came to an end last year, we’ve had several people ask us if there will still be funding for free insulation in 2013.
Good news today — we have added free boiler replacements to our already impressive list of free energy saving services.
If you live in an older house, you have probably noticed that you spend a lot of money keeping it warm in the winter. You may also notice that even when the house is warm inside, some of the walls feel cold to the touch or have condensation. That’s because most pre-1920’s homes (which includes most terraced houses) have solid brick walls which are poor at keeping in the heat. The good news is this – solid walls can be treated with External Wall Insulation.
How does external wall insulation work? How do you know if your house is suitable? How can you get a grant to help with the cost? Read on and find out.
