The 'Warmer Beds' Home Insulation Scheme - Good for the Environment... and a really good deal!
Originally published by Dave Hodgson - Mayor of Bedford Borough
I'll admit that a new home insulation scheme offered by the Council isn't necessarily the most exciting topic, but I really think it's worth highlighting what is an excellent deal for homeowners across the Borough. The 'Warmer Beds' Home Insulation Scheme is offering special summer discounted prices for cavity wall and loft insulation, which can help make a real difference to households in cutting heating bills and reducing their impact on the environment. Two thirds of all heat lost from an un-insulated home is through the walls and roof.
The Council is offering cavity wall insulation for just £99 and loft insulation for just £129 (subject to survey), or free to over 70s or those on qualifying benefits. So, in addition to working to reduce our own carbon emissions and cut energy bills for local taxpayers, the Council is working with residents to help them do the same.
Anyone can apply for discounted or free insulation if their home has less than 120mm loft insulation or no insulation in the cavity walls.
More information is available through the Council, which can be contacted on 01234 267422.
