LEAP External Wall Insulation works

LEAP External Wall Insulation works

You may have noticed some scaffolding and building works happening at homes across Lochwinnoch and Bridge of Weir.

LEAP through funding from Energy Action Scotland Consumer Redress Warmer Homes Fund are accomplishing External Wall Insulation (EWI) for vulnerable and fuel poor local 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 building.  It can cost over £9,000 to carry out external wall insulation on a whole house.  In this programme the external wall insulation is accomplished free of charge for 14 eligible households. 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.

Householders can also make a voluntary contribution to the cost which would enable us to have more local homes insulated. You can also donate to LEAP using the yellow Donate button on our homepage to contribute to this fund.
