On Monday I attended the first anniversary of the launch of “Cosy Homes” at the Town Hall. So far 11,800 homes have benefitted from this service.

The Warmer Wirral “Cosy Homes” scheme is currently offering free loft & cavity wall insulation (subject to technical survey and a maximum grant) to all Wirral home owners and private rented tenants.  This offer is  part of a project funded by Wirral Council and British Gas.  The project is managed by local environmental charity Energy Projects Plus.  All residents in Wirral are eligible regardless of income, age or status.

A third of the heat lost in an uninsulated home goes through the walls, and another quarter through the roof.  By properly insulating your home, you can expect to save £150 a year if you currently have no loft insulation and £115 a year if you don’t have cavity wall insulation.

To ensure you don’t lose your share of the funds, please telephone the Energy Saving Trust advice centre on freephone 0800 512 012 to book a technical survey or you can register online at
www.wirral.gov.uk/freeinsulation and you will receive a call back.
