Installing insulation is a straightforward measure and is one of the most cost-effective ways of keeping warmth in your home.
It takes less fuel to keep a well insulated home warm so by fully insulating your home you could save £100 or more on your annual heating bills.
For the range of home insulation options available, which include roof, cavity wall, solid wall, floor and draught-proofing, see the Energy Saving Trust website.
If you’re a London homeowner on benefits you may be eligible for a free boiler, insulation, double glazing or other improvements to help you heat your home more affordably. Warmer Homes is Mayor Sadiq Khan’s £2.5m scheme to help Londoners stay warm and save on their energy bills.
Energy Company Obligation
If you are in receipt of certain income-related benefits and own or privately rent your home, you might be able to get help for energy-saving improvements such as insulation and a new boiler through the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO).
