OVESCo - for advice in Lewes District about insulation, including free home insulation for older people, click here

OVESCo writes to LDSF (11/8/2009)

OVESCo has been contracted by LDC to give advice on where the public should go for reduced cost or free cavity wall and loft insulation. LDC has now contracted a company called Climate Energy to run the their grant scheme, which is called Keep Warm In Winter. This should be your first port of call for insulation (free for those over 60) and Climate Energy can be contacted on the following telephone number: 01273 696328.
For additional information have a look at the
attached list of contents and you could also try the www.cus.net web site. I hope this advice proves useful and please let OVESCo know if there are any problems.
