It may still be August, and hopefully summer's not quite over yet, but now's the time to think about whether your home is ready for the winter, especially if we have another cold snap like last year.
Amber Valley Borough Council are running a fantastic scheme in conjunction with Apex Carbon Solutions to help residents of Heanor and Ripley, and the whole Amber Valley, to insulate their homes, offering huge reductions on loft and cavity wall insulation.
Typically, insulating a home costs an average of £250 for the walls and £250 for the loft, but prices through this scheme start from just £99 for the walls and £49 for the loft. And if you are over 70, or on qualifying benefits you could even get this absolutely FREE, (subject to survey).
Good quality loft and wall insulation can also help save a fortune on energy bills too - with £145 from loft insulation and £110 from insulating the walls alone.
That's a whopping over £600 saving!
To find out more about the scheme call Apex Carbon Solutions on 0800 043 9569 (or 0333 577 9569 from mobiles), lines are open 8am to 8pm or contact Joanne Walker, Amber Valley BC Energy Officer on 01773 841332.
