Amanda Milling, Member of Parliament for Cannock Chase, is encouraging residents to apply for free energy saving measures, with news that energy supplier, E.ON, is offering free cavity wall and loft insulation for homes across Britain.
For a limited time, structurally eligible households across Britain can have free loft and cavity wall insulation installed for free by E.ON, regardless of whether E.ON is their current energy supplier. The insulation, which would usually cost around £775, is being offered to all homeowners, landlords or private tenants with their landlord’s permission.
A typical family home could save up to £285 per year on their heating bills by having such insulation.
Michael Lewis, E.ON UK’s Chief Executive, said: “In recent years we’ve provided more than 1.2 million energy saving measures to homes across Britain, giving people the support they need to become more energy efficient and save money on their heating bills. We’ve offered free insulation to people on qualifying benefits for many years under government obligations and know this can be a crucial first step to making homes comfortable and cheaper to run. By opening up the offer up to everyone, no matter who supplies their energy or what their financial circumstances are, we hope to benefit many more people. However, this offer won’t be available forever so we’d urge those interested to make contact now to avoid missing out.”
Almost a third of all heat lost from the home escapes through the walls and a quarter through the roof in an uninsulated home.
Amanda Milling MP said: “I have spoken many times in Parliament about the ways in which residents can bring down their energy bills, such as by switching energy supplier and the use of smart meters. Making sure your home is well insulated can have a significant difference on your heating bill, so I would encourage as many residents as possible to apply for this offer. This is a great opportunity to both save money on your heating bill and get the work carried out for free. I would also encourage anybody with elderly friends, neighbours and relatives to look into this free offer.”
