People in North Warwickshire trying to find cheap gas and electricity may wish to take advantage of a new scheme launched by the borough council.
Homeowners and occupants in the private rented sector can apply for free cavity wall and loft insulation.
This is open to all individuals, regardless of income, age or benefit eligibility and the project closes in June 2012.
Buildings will only have their walls lagged if it is less than 120 metres in size, while lagging will be installed in the loft spaces of houses with under 60mm of existing insulation and that are smaller than 80 metres.
The initiative could help people to reduce their outgoings on central heating by up to £270 every year, while cutting carbon emissions by 3,200 tonnes over the 25-year life expectancy of lagging.
"With energy bills set to continue rising as a proportion of household income until at least 2015, one key way of helping your household budget is making your home more efficient," chief executive of the Energy Saving Trust Philip Sellwood recently stated.
