HOMES across Hampshire may qualify for free loft and cavity wall insulation which could bring down heating bills.

Insulate Hampshire works with all 11 borough and district council across the county. The company has been given money to extend the offer by Scottish Power until the end of September.

The insulation keeps homes warmer in winter, cooler in summer and could save more than £300 a year on the average fuel bills.

Councillor Ken Thornber, leader of Hampshire County Council, said: ‘The Insulate Hampshire scheme aims to help as many residents as possible to save money on fuel bills and reduce their carbon emissions.

‘I am delighted by the news from Insulate Hampshire on the extension of the free offer until the end of September, as we can ensure that all residents, regardless of their personal circumstances, have access to free insulation.

‘I would encourage all Hampshire householders to take advantage of this excellent opportunity before the scheme ends.’

From January 2013 funding for subsidised insulation will end. Commercial prices for insulation are normally between £150 and £500, regardless of their personal circumstances.

The insulation is subject to a free technical survey.
