The why, what and how of getting free insulation on CERT

May 25th, 2012 by J-P Leave a reply »

We’ve talked a lot about insulation in the past here, including offers like Cocoon. But if you haven’t taken advantage of an insulation offer yet, here’s why you should:

  • Time is running out for thegovernment to meet their Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT)
  • Energy companies are obligated to meet these targets by the end of 2012
  • … So they’re giving away loft and cavity wall insulation for free!

Sounds great, right? But these offers are always a pain to take advantage of, right? Not any more. Low Carbon Oxford has summarized all the information you need, and CAG Oxfordshire have made it available on their website. Click here for all the information you’ll need in a handy Word or Powerpoint document; and then ask peter.lefort@resourcefutures.co.uk for the latest information and key contacts.

If you’re still not sure, then let me give you a personal recommendation. We took advantage of Cocoon, and that cost us £200 for loft and cavity insulation; yet we immediately saw the benefits the next winter: a cosier house and lower fuel bills. Now that insulation is being offered free, the only thing I recommend to you is: get insulated, right now.
