If you’re in receipt of disability living allowance then you may qualify for 100% free loft and cavity wall insulation for your home.
How is this possible?
Insulation grants are provided by UK energy companies and are distributed to various schemes across the country. If you’re in receipt of DLA and another qualifying component, energy companies are required to fully insulated your home to the recommended level absolutely free. Your home will be insulated as a matter of priority to ensure it is warm and does not leak heat during the winter months.
Why install insulation
As heat rises and reaches an uninsulated loft space, it quickly escapes or turns into cooler air, reducing the temperature inside your home. Loft insulation instantly reduces the amount of valuable heat escaping through your roof and retains it within your home. An uninsulated loft space could be costing you hundreds of pounds per year in wasted energy. And with energy bills higher than ever, installing loft insulation is an instant and cost-effective way of creating a warmer home and putting those wasted pounds back into your wallet.
Insulating your home is quick and mess-free.
A professional insulation installer will be able to carry out insulation work in around 2-3 hours, with the minimum of disruption. The installer will drill a series of small holes (around 25mm) in order to reach the gap between your two outer walls. They will then blow or inject insulation material (this can vary but typically it is made up of tiny pockets of air that prevent cooler air passing through) into the gap between your two outer walls. The insulation can be laid into the loft using rolls of insulation material, typically mineral wool.
