03/12/2021 - Home energy efficiency push continues

Luton Council continues its drive to improve the energy efficiency of homes in the town with an information event in Luton Central Library on Tuesday 7 December.

Running from 10.30am to 3pm, visitors will be able to learn of different grants and funding available to improve the quality of insulation they have.

A vast majority of heat in homes is lost due to a lack of insulation through the walls, floor and roof. The long term effect on the owner/occupier is that the home will require a lot more energy to heat it and to keep it at a comfortable temperature compared to one which is well insulated.

With energy prices on the rise each year, it is more important than ever to minimise heat loss and to ensure money spent on heating is not wasted. 

To advertise this campaign the council has been publicising information on waste carts throughout the town and the event at the library will give residents a chance to find out more.

Councillor Tom Shaw, portfolio holder for housing, said: “Improving the energy efficiency of Luton’ housing stock is an important part of our goal to make the town carbon neutral by 2040. These schemes will help many residents, not only to play a part in that important goal, but by improving the insulation of their homes, they will also feel the financial savings.

“The schemes are good for the environment and good for people’s pockets. Whoever you are, please check out to see if you can take advantage of the various grants on offer.”
