For a limited time, households across Britain can have cavity wall and loft insulation installed for free by E.ON, regardless of whether E.ON is their energy supplier.

The insulation, which would usually cost around £775, is being offered for free to all homeowners, landlords and private tenants who have their landlord's permission.

A typical family home could save up to £285 a year on their heating bills by installing both cavity wall and loft insulation, meaning people who take up the offer could save a total of more than £1,000.

On Friday 10th Jon Cruddas MP visited Ibscott Close in Dagenham to see the progress of the insulation works being carried out, and to speak with residents. Jon was joined by the Deputy Leader of the Council, Dominic Twomey and local Village Ward councillors Margaret Mullane, and Phil Waker.

The properties on Ibscott Close are currently receiving cavity insulation as a result of the Warm Homes campaign being run by national fuel poverty charity, National Energy Action (NEA).
