npower, a leading energy supplier, has launched a scheme to help homeowners warm up their home and reduce energy wastage. Savvy DIY experts will be able to buy loft insulation for just £1 a roll from npower's partner Build Center, meaning the average three bedroom semi-detached home can be insulated for just £19.
The scheme, open to everyone regardless of whether they are an npower energy customer or not, also offers free delivery to help ease the process. Furthermore, npower has also developed a video to help novices complete the DIY loft insulation job step by step.
The scheme forms part of npower's Government obligations to help homeowners cut the amount of energy that is wasted in the UK each year. The Energy Saving Trust anticipates that homes could save as much as £175 a year on their heating bills and around 720 kilograms of carbon dioxide a year, just by installing the recommended 270mm depth of loft insulation.
Bob Jackson, energy efficiency and policy manager for the energy supplier, commented on the scheme: "As an energy company, npower takes its commitment to the environment and to consumers extremely seriously. Rising wholesale fuel costs mean that many people find themselves struggling to pay their utility bills. The £1 a roll offer will help more people to make massive reductions, and savings in their bills and benefits from a warmer home during the long, cold winter months.
"We also know that not everyone is able to install their own loft insulation. That's why we also offer professional loft insulation meaning that everyone can benefit from the heat savings."
