Style at Home (UK) - - Home Saver -

did you know that if your house is not prop­erly in­su­lated, you may be able to get free loft and cav­ity wall in­su­la­tion worth £700? As a re­sult of the En­ergy Com­pany Obli­ga­tion (ECO), a gov­ern­ment ini­tia­tive to help re­duce car­bon emis­sions, providers must de­liver en­ergy-ef­fi­ciency mea­sures, some­times on a means-tested ba­sis.

The scheme is fo­cused on cav­ity wall and loft in­su­la­tion, where in­su­lat­ing min­eral wool is placed in cav­i­ties or un­der the rafters to pre­vent heat from es­cap­ing – sav­ing up to £300 on en­ergy bills per year. Check if you qual­ify by call­ing the En­ergy Sav­ing Trust on 0300 123 1234 in Eng­land, Wales or North­ern Ire­land, or 0808 808 2282 in Scot­land.
