Stay warm this winter through the Lewisham Insulation Partnership

4 Comments

Get your home insulated this winter from as little as zero pence through Lewisham’s new Insulation Partnership!  Lewisham Council is now working with the insulation company Saving Energy Ltd to offer all Lewisham residents the chance to get loft and cavity wall insulation at the lowest possible price.  All Lewisham residents can take advantage of this scheme, regardless of age, personal circumstances, whether their home is rented or owned and who the current energy provider is.

Having loft and cavity wall insulation installed reduces the amount of energy you need to heat your home by preventing much of the heat being lost through the walls and roof.  Around 15% of the heat from the home is lost through the walls, so if you’ve got uninsulated cavity walls at the moment, getting them insulated can make a big difference.  Homes lose about 10% of their heat through the roof, so it’s also worth getting that insulated too.

 The Lewisham Insulation Partnership draws on funding from an energy company obligation known as the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) to offer the programme at low or zero cost.  The funding places an obligation on energy companies to help people reduce the cost of their energy bills and their environmental impact, and they all have a target of the total amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions reductions they need to deliver.  Lewisham Council is working with Saving Energy Ltd to use this funding to offer Lewisham residents cavity wall insulation for free.  If people need their lofts insulated they will get the work done for free if they’ve got less than 60mm of insulation already in their home, otherwise the cost will be £179.  Whilst it may seem counter-intuitive that it costs more to have less insulation installed, this is because of how the CERT targets work, so energy companies are incentivised to maximise the CO2 savings and these are higher where there is no insulation in place, than they are in homes which already have some insulation. 

 The survey is free and there is no obligation to proceed with the works.  To book an appointment you just need to call the Saving Energy Ltd booking number on 0800 954 9689, which is free from a landline.

  1. Yes, well worth doing. And it really is as simple as it sounds. Thanks for posting.

  2. There are a number of methods in which we’re in a position to insulate our loft area based upon the types involving materials selected for being used. Because heat actions upwards and escapes through loft space, incorporating a coating of insulating material within the typical thickness advised are going to be efficient to prevent heat loss. Even though the actual recommended thickness regarding Wall Insulation snowboards is 270mm, older properties with shallow gaps among joists restrict such loft insulation interesting depth.:
