Families missing out on free insulation scheme…
“Young families may be loosing out of free insulation of their homes due to
a mistaken believe that only the elderly can benefit..” say Ray from the
Island’s Footprint Trust.
” The fact is that most householders can get cavity wall insulation for a
subsidised price of around £200… those in receipt of Working Tax Credit,
Child Tax Credit and other allowances can get it for free….”
“Those having to pay will generally get their investment back within 2 years
due to their energy bills being reduced by around a third…”
Loft insulation can by a simple DIY job with many shops such as B&Q having
special offers on the lagging materials. Payback can be within 12 months.
The Footprint Trust’s Warmahome project can give guidance on insulation and
arrange for a quote for insulation from a reputable approved contractor. Tel
