Rutland residents to receive advice on cavity wall insulation

A new energy advice service in Rutland has been launched to help residents install thermal insulation.

Homeowners in the area can now receive guidance from Energy Action for Rutland, an association formed by Change Agents UK, Age UK, Voluntary Action Rutland and the Rutland County Council, the Rutland and Stamford Mercury reports.

Experts will provide information on the best ways to preserve energy while improving household heating systems.

Daniel Curry, senior energy officer for Change Agents UK, stated the main purpose of the service is to lower bills for homeowners by making a few simple changes.

He was quoted as saying: "Sometimes it can be advising people on what tariff to be on, or it can improving their cavity wall insulation.”

Last week, an expert from heating systems company Viessmann Christian Engelke revealed one of the government's major concerns is that UK properties are currently the least energy-efficient on the continent.

According to Mr Curry, Energy Action for Rutland plans to raise awareness regarding bills and meter readings while saving people between ten and 35 per cent on their energy usage, reaching out to residents of all property types.
