Personal care worker, Barbara Cook had fully funded external wall insulation installed onto her park home in Scunthorpe in April 2021.
The works were funded through the Governments Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery (LAD) programme, a new initiative designed to reduce fuel poverty and improve the worst performing properties.
Living on her own Barbara explained: “I first realised I qualified for the scheme off my current wages and it was really good to find out I could receive so much funding!”
Managed by YES Energy Solutions on behalf of North Lincolnshire Council, Barbara was one of 53 householders taking part in phase 1A of the external wall insulation scheme.
“I was very happy with the work the installers did on the outside walls, the finish looks great!”
Having lived in the property for a while now, Barbara could easily tell the difference before and after the insulation was installed.
“In the morning and at night I’ve noticed the difference, I don’t have to turn my heating on as much as I did.
“It was cold at the start of the year but I didn’t feel it as much now I’ve got the new insulation.”
Barbara went on to explain how her neighbours felt about the scheme.
“Oh yes I’m happy, I think everyone’s glad they signed up to the scheme, nearly everyone on the street has had it done and they look really good.”
“The install didn’t take long at all, the workmen did the job quickly and didn’t cause any hassle, and Emma on the phone at YES Energy Solutions was lovely to speak to. Overall I was really happy with everything.”
