Insulate Hampshire has extended its offer of free loft and cavity wall insulation for the duration of the scheme (1). The scheme is backed by all 11 Councils in Hampshire and offers all Hampshire residents (2) free cavity wall and loft insulation (subject to a free technical survey provided as part of the scheme (3).
The extension of the free offer has come thanks to increased financial commitment from ScottishPower, the funding partner for Insulate Hampshire. With the extension of the free offer, residents will have more time to join the scheme as it was provisionally free under a Winter Warmer promotion due to end 31st March. Now Hampshire residents have until September to insulate their homes for free, helping them to keep their homes warmer in winter, cooler in summer and save over £300 a year on their fuel bills (4).
Councillor Ken Thornber, Chairman of the Hampshire Senate, says:
“The Insulate Hampshire scheme aims to help as many residents as possible to save money on fuel bills and reduce their carbon emissions. I am delighted by the news from Insulate Hampshire on the extension of the free offer until the end of September, as we can ensure that residents, regardless of their personal circumstances, have access to free insulation. I would encourage all Hampshire householders to take advantage of this excellent opportunity before the scheme ends”.
From the 1st January 2013 however, funding for subsidised insulation and projects such as Insulate Hampshire will end. This will mean that all residents will have to pay commercial prices for insulation, normally between £150 and £500, regardless of their personal circumstances.
High demand is anticipated in the forthcoming months, so residents are encouraged to contact the Insulate Hampshire team as soon as possible by calling 0800 952 0037 or visiting https://www.insulatehampshire.co.uk/apply-online.html to apply.
