Energy matters

Insulation and heating

Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council is able to refer customers on to utility companies/providers to enquire about free loft and cavity wall insulation as well as broken boiler replacements and first time central heating installs for residents to improve energy efficiency and reduce fuel poverty. The cost of the insulation is funded with Energy Company Obligation (ECO) money from the utility companies.

Insulation can save you money on your annual energy bills and you can benefit from a warmer home during the winter. The typical savings for different types of properties can be viewed on the Energy Saving Trust website links below.

You need to own your own home, or rent residential premises from a private landlord. The permission of the landlord will also be required for the installation.

Eligibility criteria

Do you have a household income below £30,419 and fulfil one of the following criteria:

  • have children under the age of 5 years old
  • are pregnant
  • are aged 60 and over
  • have a pre-payment gas/electric meter
  • live in a mobile/park home
  • live in the Nuneaton and Bedworth post code areas - CV7, CV10, CV11 and CV12
