    Can I get free Cavity Wall insulation ? 10th Oct 17 at 3:24 PM
    Hi

    My Gas and electic is currently with Iresa and it doesn't look like they offer anything, as they are new.

    but are there any companys etc I can apply for to get free cavity wall insulation? 2 adults and 2 children, 1 working below 23k

    Any help or advice would be great

    Note to all: the two main open-to-all offers are from E.ON and NPOWER. I've researched which company has the better customer service as I don't want to be stuck with a mess if something goes balls up - after all, I'm not the one paying the contractor for this service.

    Both are pretty dire, but E.ON is way, way above NPower in the customer service rankings. NPower tends to come bottom of every survey while E.ON is about midtable.

    I've just booked a survey for my free (I hope) cavity wall insulation from E.ON.

    I'm sure there have been recent reports advising people NOT to get CWI as it can cause damp due to lack of ventilation.

    is that true? I thought damp was all down to poor rendering and damp proofing on the outside walls?
