E.ON urges households to apply for free cavity wall and loft insulation before 30th June

  • Free insulation available regardless of energy supplier
  • Potential combined savings of more than £1,000 per home from free insulation and savings on heating bills

  • Details available at eonenergy.com/insulate or to book an appointment call 0330 400 1083

People across the UK have until midnight on 30th June 2018 to apply for E. ON’s free cavity wall and loft insulation offer, available to all households regardless of their energy supplier [1].

The insulation, which would usually cost around £775 [2], is being offered for free to all homeowners, and landlords, as well as private tenants who have their landlord’s permission.

A typical household could save up to £285 [3] a year on their heating bills by installing both cavity wall and loft insulation, meaning people who take up the offer could save a total of more than £1,000[4].

Nigel Dewbery, Head of Energy Efficiency at E.ON, said: “Insulation not only keeps homes warmer during winter, but it also helps keep homes cooler during summer, reduces draughts and cuts the level of external noise entering a property.

“Our offer of free insulation for all households has been open for around ten months and thousands of people have benefitted as a result. We’d urge anyone who hasn’t already, to get in touch to find out more about the offer and to apply before it’s too late. We would highlight that the offer for free insulation remains open to all vulnerable households beyond the 30th June.”

Almost a third of all heat lost in the home escapes through walls and a quarter through the roof in an uninsulated home [5].
