Householders in the region who are hoping to use the spring season to get their homes in order are being offered free* insulation to help them prepare for future winters.
The insulation drive is being carried out by not-for-profit sustainability organisation tadea, and will see homes all across the north of England fitted with cavity wall and loft insulation. The scheme is open to all homeowners and private tenants, and those who sign up and get insulation installed will benefit from warmer homes and reduced fuel bills for years to come.
tadea is urging householders to sign up and make the most of this offer while they can. Cavity wall and loft insulation can make an enormous difference to the lives of those who get it installed. Cavity wall insulation is one of the most cost-effective energy efficiency measures that can be taken in the home, as it can save around £135** each year on heating bills. It also helps to reduce carbon emissions – so getting insulation fitted is good for the environment too.
Bob Kirby is tadea’s Domestic Operations Manager. He says:
“Everyone deserves to have a warm and healthy home, and people without insulation are always more likely to feel the worst effects of the British weather.
“Our insulation scheme is directly helping people all across the north of England keep warm at home, and we want to make sure that as many people as possible get involved so that they can enjoy the benefits of this scheme.
“Coming into spring, people tend to easily forget the low temperatures of winter – however, cold conditions inevitably come around again and again. This time of year is perfect for getting insulation fitted, and by getting in touch and finding out more about this offer, people will be taking the first step to making their homes warmer and more comfortable places to live. They will also save money on their fuel bills – not just for this year but long into the future.”
