Final call to apply for free home insulation
10:16am Wednesday 6th March 2013 in News
A SCHEME which offers free home insulation to Ryedale residents has almost reached its funding limit.
The Wrapping Up Yorkshire initiative allows residents, including landlords, to claim free loft and cavity wall insulation for their homes for a short time, with the financial support coming from national energy firms.
The remaining funding will allow 30 homes in Ryedale – and 500 across North Yorkshire – to be insulated.
Coun Linda Cowling, Ryedale District Council leader, said: “The scheme gives the opportunity for reduced fuel bills and improved health for those most susceptible to illness as a result of cold homes, and we’re now urging residents to take up the offer before the money completely runs out.”
Anybody who wants to take advantage of the scheme should phone Yorkshire Energy Partnership on 01904 545020 and quote “Wrapping Up Yorkshire”, or visit www.yorkshirenergypartnership.org.uk/advice
