A properly insulated home is energy-efficient and will not only save you money on your bills, but will make your home more comfortable to live in and also help contribute to a cleaner environment.
Home Comforts provides a free home insulation service to assist homes at risk of, or in fuel poverty.
The scheme is targeted at people living in owner-occupied, non-local authority homes constructed before 2006, and in receipt of any one of the following: Fuel Allowance Payment as part of the National Fuel Scheme; Jobseekers Allowance for over six months with a child under seven years old; or Family Income Supplement.
Home Comforts will be pleased to carry out a survey of your property and provide you with details of the measures to be carried out.
The measures provided at no cost to eligible homes include attic insulation, draught proofing, lagging jackets, low energy bulbs, cavity wall insulation, energy advice, ventilation, and post-works for BER certs.
By insulating your attic, you can reduce your heating costs by 25 per cent, while cavity wall insulation saves approximately 35 per cent of heating costs, and combats condensation.
The large increases in gas, electricity, oil, and solid fuel costs over the past few years look set to continue. Ensure you are not wasting valuable money and resources by contacting Home Comforts to insulate your home.
Home Comforts is a non-profit organisation which is part of Athlone Community Services and funded by SEAI.
They provide the best quality insulation materials, and together with the experience and expertise of their FETAC-qualified insulation installer technicians offer an unbeatable package for insulating your home.
