The Government has set aside £2bn go towards making homes more energy efficient. Taking part in the scheme could save you more than £200 annually on your bills and reduce your carbon footprint by cutting 700 kilograms of carbon a year from your home.
Typically this means a householder would pay £1.3K of a £3.9K bill for roof insulation while the Government would pay the rest of the bill costing in this case £2.6K however households on low incomes can receive vouchers covering 100% of the cost of the improvements up to a maximum £10,000 pounds.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to upgrade your roof and insulation taking advantage of the Government's contribution of £5K plus ongoing savings amounting to 100’s of pounds per year.
