Stay Warm in Your Home This Winter

With winter looming, and the temperature outside falling, it is important to remain warm in your home. If your home does not have adequate insulation, not only are you wasting money and energy, you could be putting your health in serious danger.

If you believe your home may be in need of insulation, there are several options available to you.

  • Warm Front

The Warm Front Scheme offers grants for heating and insulation improvements up to £3,500. (Or up to £6,000 if your home needs oil central heating.)
Grants are available for improvements such as:

* Loft insulation
* Draught-proofing
* Cavity wall insulation
* Hot water tank insulation
* Gas, electric, liquid petroleum gas or oil heating
* Glass-fronted fire – the Warm Front scheme can convert your solid-fuel open fire to a glass-fronted fire

To find out if you qualify, call a Warm Front advisor free on 0800 316 2805 (lines are open Monday to Friday from 8am-6pm and Saturdays from 9am-5pm) or visit the Warm Front website.
