A double whammy is on the way for householders: energy prices
are rising and subsidies for loft and cavity wall insulation are
coming to an end. But there’s still time to take advantage of
Bassetlaw District Council’s New Warmstreets Insulation Scheme.
Call 0800 043 9569, or if calling from a mobile 0333 557 9569, to
take advantage of subsidised insulation today. Alternatively, visit
the Warmstreets website.
Warm Streets offers private householders the opportunity to have
loft insulation installed for just £49 and cavity wall insulation
for just £99, subject to survey. Some householders will qualify to
have the works carried out free of charge.
Rising energy prices are making it ever more expensive to heat
our homes. On 22nd July, Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) became
the third of the ‘big six’ energy suppliers to announce massive
price rises in less than a month. SSE Customers will pay 11% more
for their electricity and 18% more for their gas from
mid-September. It is expected to be only a matter of time before
the rest of the ‘big six’ follow suit.
On top of rising bills, the government intends to replace the
direct subsidies which currently make insulation so cheap with the
‘Green Deal’ at the end of 2012. Although other incentives will be
available, these are still to be clarified and are unlikely to
offer the fantastic value Warm Streets provides.
Wendy Pigott, Strategic Housing Development Manager at Bassetlaw
District Council said:
‘The need to be efficient in our energy use is more pressing
than ever. With longer nights just a couple of months away, now is
the time to identify potential savings from changes to your home
such as loft and cavity wall insulation, upgrading your heating
system, replacing old, energy-guzzling appliances, insulating your
hot water tank or draught proofing measures.
‘Simple lifestyle changes such as not over filling the kettle or
using lids on your saucepans can also reduce your bills and save
you pounds. It is also possible to save a considerable amount of
money by switching supplier or changing your method of payment.
Warm Streets can also offer the best deals in renewable
technologies, external wall insulation, replacement heating systems
and other improvements to your home. Call 0800 043 9569, or if
