Press Release:
Insulate against fuel poverty

Release Date 25 February 2016

To highlight Fuel Poverty Awareness Day on 26th February 2016, the National Insulation Association (NIA) is urging householders to act now and insulate.

The aim of the campaign is to increase awareness to help the 4.5 million UK households currently suffering the effects of fuel poverty, unable to live in a warm, dry home.

The NIA advises that around 60% of heat can be lost through uninsulated walls and roofs; but with the right measures put in place, householders could be keeping this valuable heat in their homes.

Cavity Wall Insulation (CWI) can be installed in just a few hours isn't disruptive to householders and the benefits are immediate. There are over 7 million households in the UK that have solid walls rather than cavity walls that can benefit from home insulation too. 

The NIA urges householders considering home insulation to only use NIA registered installers for added reassurance and peace of mind as they meet stringent membership criteria and are all signed up to its strict Code of Professional Practice.  To help householders find a local NIA registered installer there is a postcode locator on the NIA website which enables householders to locate installers by proximity to their home.

Neil Marshall, Chief Executive of the NIA added; "Not only will the insulation keep the heat in it will also help save money on domestic energy bills  with savings continuing year on year."

The NIA advises householders to contact an NIA registered installer for a free survey and quotation plus advice on any help that is available to pay for the insulation.

To find out more, or to contact their local installer, householders should visit the NIA website and they can keep up with the latest advice on Twitter @NIAConsumer.
