01-02-2012Yorkshire Energy Services are encouraging people across the country to insulate their homes and reduce their energy waste in support of Fuel Poverty Awareness Day.
Fuel Poverty Awareness Day
The Huddersfield based Community Interest Company currently runs two council backed insulation schemes, on behalf of Hampshire County Council and most recently Leeds City Council, following on from the success of the Kirklees Warm Zone free insulation scheme.
The Department for Energy and Climate Change suggest that there are still around 10 million lofts (43% of UK homes) which remain unlagged; and 8 million empty cavity walls (42% of households across the UK) that fail to have the current recommended insulation levels.
Chief Executive of Yorkshire Energy Services William Edrich explained “Insulating a home is by far the most cost effective method of saving energy; and by insulating a home with both cavity wall insulation and loft insulation you can expect to save up to £300 each and every year on fuel bills.”
Yorkshire Energy Services are supporting the day, by National Energy Action (NEA), aimed at raising awareness of the health problems caused by living in cold, damp homes and the help that is available. This year Fuel Poverty Awareness Day will be held on Friday 10 February, 2012.
