A DEADLINE is looming for residents who can register for home improvements in a bid to save money.
People living in council owned properties in the Camp Hill, Wembrook and Barpool areas of Nuneaton are being given the chance to sign up to a Community Energy Saving Partnership but time is running out.
They have until Saturday, September 1 to register with the project, which if they qualify could see a whole host of changes made to their home.
Work could include external wall insulation, loft insulation and central heating boiler upgrades and it will be carried out at little or no cost.
It is part of a £2million investment into Nuneaton homes being run by E.ON in partnership with Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council and will help private housing residents who have not benefited from other insulation offers that have been made available.
Councillor Julie Jackson, cabinet member for housing, said:“To attract this amount of investment into the borough is a huge achievement, and we want to encourage everyone in the qualifying areas to take full advantage of the offers available.
"The insulation can make a huge difference to your heating bills and your home, especially in winter.”
By installing energy saving measures, people can not only cut their spending by seeing bills reduced but they will also improve fuel efficiency and will feel warmer in their homes.
Private home owners in the Nuneaton areas could also qualify for improvements and they will only have to make a small contribution from their own pocket.
Jon Kirby, energy efficiency manager at E.ON, said: “Our concept of energy fit is based on helping people to use less energy by losing less energy - insulating their homes better and moderating their energy use.
“Through our work here in Nuneaton we’re able to help whole communities and really start to make a difference in building energy efficiency into our everyday lives.
“And it’s not just these homes benefiting from the investment; private home owners can also take advantage of reduced rates on similar energy efficiency measures.”
