Jan and her family are now warmer and better off with cavity wall insulation
Jan lives with her husband and two teenage children in a 3-bed semi-detached house in Royston. Built in the 1970s, the house had cavity walls but no insulation. The Energy Performance Certificate for the house said that they could save £202 a year on their gas bill if the cavities were filled with insulation.
After Jan called NES, we confirmed that the walls could be installed free of charge. Within three weeks the cavities were insulated with non-combustible insulating material and Jan and her family could start spending the £202 they were saving on something more interesting!
Jan said: “The insulation only took a couple of hours to install and there was minimal disruption since all the work was done from the outside. With the price of energy only going up and up it’s crazy to spend money on heating the house only for so much of it to disappear through the walls! The 25-year warranty provides reassurance that we’re going to keep on making trouble free savings for years to come. The insulation has also improved my EPC rating for when we sell our house in the future. So it’s a great deal and I only wish I had done this years ago!”
