Free loft insulation and Priority Services Register
Case Study Overview
Ken K and Ken S are both over 60, and privately rent. Their home is always very cold during winter – so they decided to take a look in the loft to see if it contained any insulation. They found very little insulation up there which they mentioned to Notts Fire and Rescue whilst they completed one of their Smoke alarm checks – the team kindly referred the couple through to Healthy Housing.
Due to their age, existing loft depth and that they receive a means tested benefit, they received free loft insulation – the only cost to the landlord was a £25 technical survey fee. They were also added to Western Power Distribution’s Priority Services Register.
A fully insulation loft can save up to £160 a year to a household’s heating bill.
