Read on to find out how we can help you if you’re a Shropshire-based household looking to save money on energy.

Loft insulation grants are needed in Shropshire

31.3% of homes in Shropshire

are considered to have below-average walls. That’s around a third of homes in your area experiencing uncomfortable and expensive heat loss, where a lack of insulation or properly installed insulation measures are putting unnecessary pressure on boilers and heating technology to keep homes comfortable. This is making energy bills in Shropshire more expensive than they need to be.

28.8% of lofts in the Shropshire

area are considered to be below average. Heat rises and as a result, loft insulation is one of the best ways to combat heat loss in your home. It is also one of the quickest and most convenient. That’s why free loft insulation is being made available through the Great British Insulation Scheme.
