Mendip residents are being given the opportunity to improve their home for free, thanks to grant funding which is immediately available.
There has been a huge demand for assistance with the cost of insulating properties, so residents are being encouraged to act swiftly in order to benefit from the offer.
The Home Energy Team offer free and impartial energy saving advice and are on hand to give the latest information about the grants available. The offer means that any homeowner or privately-renting tenant in Mendip will be able to have cavity wall insulation installed in their home, free of charge – making their home much warmer and cosier, and cutting their fuel bills. Loft insulation can also be installed at no extra cost if the cavity is being insulated.
Jamie Walters, who manages the Home Energy Team said: “This is a fantastic offer which will not only improve your home, making it more comfortable, but will also reduce your fuel bills. Having your home insulated can save you hundreds of pounds, and we know people have been waiting for this offer.”
The available funding for cavity wall and loft insulation tackles the problem of cold homes and excessive expenditure on fuel bills for Mendip’s private residents. As an example, householders living in an average semi-detached house could save £295 a year on their fuel bills.
Nigel Woollcombe-Adams, portfolio holder for Built Environment, said: “When times are tough we are all looking to save a few pounds and this is a great opportunity to help improve your home’s efficiency and cut your fuel bills. I would urge Mendip residents to take full advantage of this new scheme and call the Home Energy Team today.”
The Home Energy Team can also help residents find out about various other ways to lower their heating and electricity bills with free and impartial energy saving advice.
