Passed on by Mark Thompson; owner of Rock Pools

British Gas is currently installing free loft and cavity wall insulation (subject to some checks) for anybody regardless of income. There are no tie-ins with British Gas and they will also replace hot water cylinder jackets. 

There is a charge if they have to erect scaffolding to complete the cavity wall insulation.
