GRANTS are being given to insulate homes to keep out the cold this winter.
East Hampshire residents can receive help of at least £4,000 to equip their homes with solid wall insulation and £400 for a new boiler.
Other measures on offer from East Hampshire District Council include cavity wall insulation, double glazing, loft insulation and high performance doors.
The first step in the process is a Green Deal assessment – this lets the homeowner know which energy-saving measures make the most sense for their home.
This assessment is free, if the homeowner goes on to have work done, and if not it costs £29 rather than the usual price of £150.
The scheme is open to all East Hampshire residents living in a privately-owned or privately-rented home.
Councillor Melissa Maynard said: ‘This really is a fantastic opportunity for people to make their home warmer this winter.’
