Cosy Homes Barking & Dagenham
Energy efficiency measures for the residents of Barking & Dagenham.
Our efficiency scheme
In partnership with
Barking & Dagenham Council is working with E.ON and J&J Crump on its Cosy Homes scheme to help eligible residents benefit from a range of energy saving measures in their homes.
These measures include loft, cavity, and party wall insulation, and in some cases replacement boilers or full new heating.
Helping you to save money
Plenty of older homes still require insulation measures, but even if your home was built within the last 20 years it may have been built with no insulation, you could be losing a third of the heat in your house through the walls and roof. You could even cut down on your fuel bills, with cavity wall insulation estimated to save you up to £150* per year. In addition, loft insulation could save you another £125*.
Find out if you’re eligible for FREE insulation works
We’ve set out the criteria below – if any of these apply to you, you could benefit from our free Cosy Homes scheme.
Homes with an income level of less than £26,000
Homes in receipt of certain benefits
Homes with someone over 65 and an income level of less than £32,000
Homes with a child under 16 and an income level of less than £32,000
Homes with a pregnant woman and an income level of less than £32,000
Homes where someone has a long-term health condition and an income level of less than £32,000
How it all works
The works are simple to carry out and take less than a day to complete.
A surveyor will visit your property, the visit only takes a few minutes and they will complete all the paperwork.
It doesn’t matter if you own your own home of if it is rented (private rented properties not eligible for boiler replacements) the offer is open to everyone and most measures will be installed free (subject to survey and eligibility.)
Councillor Cameron Geddes, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Social Housing, said:
“Fuel poverty is a huge challenge in our borough and with rising energy prices residents living in the least energy-efficient homes often suffer the most.
“The scheme is a fantastic way to help residents live in warmer homes, leading to lower fuel bills, more disposable income and better health. I’d urge everyone to get in touch to find out if they qualify to benefit from this free scheme.”
