Fuel poverty is a problem that keeps on growing

As someone who relies on income-based benefits to get by, you’ll have noticed just how difficult it is becoming to keep your home warm and comfortable for yourself and your family.

With so much heat being lost through your roof due to inadequate or missing insulation, the government’s FREE LOFT INSULATION scheme is intended to help people just like you to save on energy bills, reduce their impact on the environment and keep their homes in a cosy and liveable condition.

How does loft insulation help keep heating costs down?

Loft insulation reduces heat loss through your roof, increasing your home’s thermal efficiency. This means:

  • The heat you generate won’t just disappear the second you turn your radiators or heaters off

  • You could save anywhere from £120 to £280 a year on energy bills

  • You’ll reduce your household’s carbon footprint

  • You’ll benefit from a warmer home and a better standard of living

It’s all down to the ECO4 scheme run by the UK government

The scheme is the government’s way of making the nation more energy efficient and lightening the load for homeowners and renters up and down the country. Find out more about ECO4 here
