Insulation scheme launched by council

Erewash Borough Council has formed a partnership to provide a Warmstreets Insulation Scheme giving residents the opportunity to save money on their fuel bills by insulating their homes at a fraction of the cost.

The Warmstreets campaign offers a highly-subsidised price for private householders to have energy-saving insulation installed – with the work costing £49 for loft insulation and £99 for cavity wall insulation, subject to survey.

For residents aged over 70 or currently receiving qualifying benefits, home insulation could be free.

Warmstreets surveyors will start to visit properties in the next few days and are able to carry out a free survey there and then. Residents can book a survey by calling 0800 043 9569.
