Households take action to keep the cold at bay


Chilly UK homeowners are taking action after a string of harsh winters – with 111,000 in the East of England fitting extra insulation to their property in the last year, new research from the Energy Saving Trust has found.

The latest statistics show an incredible 54 per cent of homes in the East of England still have under-insulated lofts and 651,000 have un-insulated cavity walls – with millions of UK households still eligible for free or discounted help to solve their heat-loss problems

Through the Carbon Emission Reduction Target (CERT) scheme, around four million homes in the UK have taken up grants and offers to pay for cavity wall or loft insulation since April 2008.
