    Free loft/wall insulation...

    EDF are currently offering free supply and fit of loft and wall insulation to everyone. You don't have to be an EDF customer, its open to everyone and you only need to fit in with basic eligibility criteria.

    British gas are also running the offer, but you must have dual fuel bills with them to qualify.

    Had mine done last year, it wasn't free though, but I had a contribution towards it. Makes a huge difference in the winter, and my energy usage has dropped according to my bills. But the increase in energy prices has cancelled out any financial savings!

    I know, crap isn't it?! But to be fair, if I was still using the same amount of energy, my bills would be even more...

    Hell yeah.
    I'm sat in mine at the moment with the back door open.
    Fresh air, dogs come and go as they please, heating off (Saving money), Naked underneth so no extra washing (saving more money) and I'm still warm.

    Score!!



    We did have a guy knock on the door couple of days ago talking about this.
    I told him to talk to the land lady, not our house.

    What, like freaky bendy thumbs? That's not a talent!!!

    We had a similar scheme in our last house, a token amount for loft insulation. It made a huge difference. But, the retards who fit it never left enough clearance around our bathroom down lighters and they got so hot that the glass in one exploded while I was showering but apart from that it was all good.

    Ever thought about swapping suppliers?
    We swapped recently and seem to be making a nice little savings.


    Any time Damo. :D

    One word of warning about these free/subsidised offers. Just make sure they put a fibrous insulation panel or roll in your loft and not polystyrene balls like they use in the cavity.

    A friends parents had their loft done for free which involved them blowing polystyrene beads into the loft which end up going everywhere and means that the loft is out of bounds for storing stuff. Cowboy contractors can be tempted to do it as it is quicker & hence cheaper to do than do it properly with the fibre stuff.

    Scott I'v changed to a few over the years and have learnt my lesson. Due fule with BG aint costing me more than anywhere else, plus they given me a capped rate on gas. Also got a rebate not so long back for summer which was nice. For some reason all the houses on our block rinse gas. Can deffo feel the difference now caverty Walls have been done so hopefully will drop next year.

    Haha they got me On that on too lingy, said it was down to having two fires and a hole between rooms. I think it's due to the fires being more that 12kw output combined. Wouldn't mind but the fires are never on as the gas is to damn pricey ffs.

    Pants down, bent over, that'll do nicely sir
