Insulation for free

Households across Bolsover district - including Tibshelf - are being urged to get their home insulated for free during 2012.

The authority is offering free loft and cavity wall insulation for homes regardless of their income, thanks to Warmstreets, the only insulation scheme endorsed by the council.

The offer includes free loft insulation for any private household (owned or rented) that currently has none (or less than 60mm), as well as free cavity wall insulation.

Those who already have at least 60mm of loft insulation can pay a subsidised price of just £99 to have it topped up to the recommended level of 270mm.

l Householders can contact Warmstreets on 0800 043 9569, or from a mobile on 0333 577 9569, to arrange a survey.
