It’s a fact that many homes in Essex are wasting money simply by using the heating. Older homes may have heating systems of various types that are nowhere near as energy-efficient as the latest condensing boilers, for example. That means that they use more fuel, and if you use more fuel, it costs more.
This is why the government is doing everything it can in order to help families reduce their energy consumption by providing free grants for upgrading heating systems. Not only will this reduce costs, but it will also reduce the amount of CO2 that is discharged into the atmosphere, thus helping with the aim of net zero by 2050.
But it’s not just heating grants, but also grants to help with insulation. You see, many homes have either very poor insulation, or in some cases none at all. If a home is not fully insulated, a lot of heat dissipates through the walls, the ceilings, the roof, and even the floor. Again, this wastes money and causes more CO2 to be discharged into the atmosphere.
Hence why the government is offering energy-efficient insulation grants in Essex. If you can stop heat escaping, you simply need less heat to keep your home warm, thus using less energy in the first place.
At GetAFreeBoiler we are official installers of insulation and can help with a free insulation grant for low-income families in Essex. If you have a modern new-built home, then it will have cavity walls that are insulated. But if it is older, it may have no insulation at all. The same goes for your loft. You may even have loft insulation, but it may not be thick enough. We used to look at 4” as being good, but today it should be more like 11” in order to achieve maximum heat retention.
Talk to us today to see if you qualify for a free insulation grant for your home.
