LEAP Solid Wall Insulation
With funding from Energy Action Scotland through the Consumer Redress Warmer Homes Fund LEAP are accomplishing external wall insulation for vulnerable and fuel poor residents living in hard to treat solid wall homes.
This external wall insulation can reduce heating bills by up to 33% making homes feel more comfortable and, as energy prices continue to rise, could prevent even higher bills in future. The work can also improve the appearance and energy rating of the property.
It can cost around £9,000 to carry out external wall insulation on a whole house. In this programme the external wall insulation is being offered free of charge to eligible householders and subject to survey and funding availability. Householders can also make a voluntary contribution to the cost which would enable us to have more local homes insulated.
We’ve been oversubscribed for this scheme and works are underway in Bridge of Weir and Lochwinnoch. If you’d like to be considered for similar future works please click here to contact us.
LEAP together with Renfrewshire Council also accomplished a successful pilot free solid wall insulation project in 2014 carrying out external wall insulation to 7 hard to treat local homes in Lochwinnoch (the PA12 postcode area project)
