Last chance for free home insulation
in Tamworth have until the end of the year to sign up to have
energy-saving loft and cavity wall insulation installed at their
homes completely free of charge.
Since June last year, every single resident
living in the Tamworth Borough Council area – whether a homeowner
or renting property – has had the chance can get the insulation
installed free of charge. The offer is open to everyone living in
the borough, regardless of age or income and applicants do not need
to be in receipt of benefit.
In that time, 2,400 measures – worth almost £1
million – have been installed in homes across Tamworth. This
represents a saving of 56,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide.
But the scheme will close at the end of the
year – and will not be extended. So with the colder weather on the
way, Tamworth residents are being urged to sign up for the free
insulation – or lose out.
The insulation measures are available through
the HEAT freephone line. Anyone living in Tamworth who would like
free loft and cavity wall insulation should call HEAT on 0800 043
2815. The work MUST be booked in with the insulation contractor by
December 31, although it can be carried out after this date.
The offer is open to everyone living in
Tamworth, but only where there is less than 100mm of existing
insulation. The insulation measures are free for homes where the
cavity is up to 120 square metres or 90 square metres for the loft.
If a home is bigger, then the householder will have to pay the
