The Energy Saving Trust is the UK’s leading organisation providing free, expert and impartial advice tailored to help you save energy in your home and on the move.
The Energy Saving Trust advice centre, Merseyside and Cheshire can guide you to insulation grants, refer you to local installers and provide advice to help you make the right decisions to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
Helping you save energy in the home
Did you know a third of heat lost in an uninsulated home goes through the walls and another quarter through the roof? If you insulate your home you could save £145* a year if you currently have no loft insulation and £110* if you insulate your cavity walls.
There are grants offering insulation measures from as little as £99 and in some areas it could be free. For more information on grants in your area call the Energy Saving Trust advice centre on 0800 512 012 or visit www.energysavingtrust.org.uk/grants
*The average saving for a three-bedroom, gas heated, semi-detached home.
