Act Now!

Time is running out to get your properties insulated free of charge

The Green Deal is due to be launched in October this year, along with a new funding regime to provide energy efficiency works for those on a very low income and also for premises where the cost of improving the energy efficiency will be very high, such as solid wall properties.

The new funding regime will see the end of the current round of subsidies for cavity wall and loft insulation, which have been available for many years although generally not as generous as they are now. There are currently some incredible offers for insulation as the energy companies become more desperate to meet the targets set by the government before the end of this year.

Many energy companies will provide free insulation for anyone, not just their own customers, whilst some are even giving cash bonuses of up to £100 and even a finder’s fee of up to £50, along with the free insulation. The offers are available for owner occupiers, tenants and landlords and so if you don’t have adequate loft or cavity wall insulation act now before the offers end.

Too good to be true? Phone the Energy Saving Trust on 0300 123 1234 to find the latest offers and find the best deal for you and your tenants.

Get your properties insulated now whilst it’s free and before the enforcement of energy efficiency standards are introduced. You will also avoid the paperwork which will be associated with any Green Deal funding.
