Free insulation for Hampshire residents for a limited period
Press Release: 14/12/2011
When we launched Insulate Hampshire, we were offering a compelling and cost effective scheme to help residents tackle the rising cost of keeping homes warm. Now, we can offer a free scheme to all residents regardless of their personal circumstances to fully insulate their homes, save money on their fuel bills and reduce their carbon emissions. I would encourage all residents to take advantage of this excellent opportunity.”
Thousands of Hampshire homes do not have cavity wall or basic loft insulation measures in place and 65,000 Hampshire homes occupied by older people over the age of 70 are not insulated. Nationally, cold-related illnesses costs the NHS £1 billion every year. Tackling this issue is a Senate priority.”
The ‘Winter Warmer’ free insulation offer will run until March 2012. High demand is anticipated so residents are encouraged to contact the Insulate Hampshire team as soon as possible by calling 0800 952 0037, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting www.insulatehampshire.co.uk to sign up.
The Insulate Hampshire scheme is backed by the Hampshire Senate – a partnership of local authorities, other agencies including the Hampshire primary care trust, police and fire authorities and the voluntary and community sector – together with Eastleigh and Fareham Borough Councils.
- This offer excludes those residents living in the Southampton and Portsmouth City Council areas
- Free Insulation for average sized properties or smaller and, in the case of loft insulation, that currently have less than 60mm (approx 2½ inches) of material. Charges will apply for larger properties or those where other installation equipment is needed.
