Calderdale homeowners begin receiving funded insulation measures

Back

Homeowners across Calderdale have begun to take advantage of a new local authority scheme accessing fully funded home improvement measures.

The initiative, a partnership between Calderdale Council and Better Homes Yorkshire, is funded by the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The work is being carried out by local energy efficiency experts, Eclipse Energy.

One recipient from Elland was one of the first to benefit from the measures. “We’re delighted with the work, the team at Eclipse were incredibly efficient and got everything done with no fuss”.

Through the scheme, homeowners meeting certain income-based criteria in Calderdale receive a fully funded renovation of their attic room, provided that it is already used as a permanent room. The renovation includes insulation, decorating and ventilation upgrades, making the home more energy efficient while reducing the risk of damp and mould.

Steve Batty Head of Sustainability at Better Homes Yorkshire said: “We’re delighted that Calderdale residents are beginning to reap the benefits of this work. The improvements made to Julie’s attic will make a real difference in reducing heat loss, which will keep her home warmer for longer, and ultimately save money in the long run, as well as contributing towards a greener future.”  

Funding is available for up to 200 homes in the region up to July, and interested applicants are encouraged to get in touch with local company Eclipse Energy, who are conducting surveys and installations of qualifying homeowners.

Mark Bannister, Managing Director of Eclipse, commented “It’s a testament to the hard work of Calderdale Council that they have been so proactive helping people in the region, and it wouldn’t be possible without the team at Better Homes Yorkshire. We encourage anyone interested to get in touch with us as soon as possible to prevent disappointment, as funding is limited.”
