With winter approaching you can save on your fuel bills with the help of the council.
If you are aged 60 or over then you could get cavity wall and loft insulation for free, or if you are aged under 60 you could get insulation at low cost. Both schemes are subject to availability and a survey.
Cavity wall insulation significantly reduces the amount of energy you need to heat your home and could save you around £110 a year on your fuel bills. Insulating an un-insulated loft could save you around £145 a year and reduce your carbon dioxide emissions too.
Bolton Council has teamed up with British Gas and insulation specialists Hillserve, to set up the scheme. Those aged under 60 and whose house is suitable, could get cavity and loft insulation for as little as £50 each, depending on availability and survey.
If you are not sure if your house is suitable a surveyor will come out to check at no cost.
