Free Insulation Offer

Climate Energy and Swale Borough Council are working together and have a free insulation offer for all households in Swale.

Anyone, whether they own their home or rent from a landlord, can apply for free cavity wall insulation and loft insulation. To get the ball rolling make a free call on 0800 083 7383 and arrange for a free survey to make sure the insulation is suitable for your home. The average home could save around £300 per year on their fuel bills by installing cavity wall and loft insulation. This offer is very unusual as it is not means tests – anyone can apply.

This offer only runs for this year so time to act now!

This press release shows that the warm front grants for heating and insulation for people on certain benefits will continue.
