What is the LA FLEX scheme?
As the qualifying criteria is defined by your Local Authority, this has allowed local councils to extend the criteria beyond household income and benefits received. Subsequently, more homeowners that are pregnant, with growing families or older occupants can get access to energy efficiency measures via the LA FLEX scheme.
No one enjoys living in a cold home. This is even more frustrating if you happen to be paying high energy bills every month. Have you noticed draughts or are some rooms more chilly than others? These are some of the main symptoms that there may be an issue with the insulation throughout your loft and between your walls. Still, you might be hesitant to upgrade this insulation due to financial concerns. The good news is that a government programme known as LA Flex may be able to help. Let us take a look at this opportunity as well as why contacting the team at Installers UK is a great idea.
The Benefits of LA Flex Funding
LA Flex is an acronym for “Local Authority Eligibility Flexibility”. This programme is designed to help homeowners who are not currently receiving any type of aid but are still grappling with a tight budget. Companies that are approved by this scheme can provide you with massively reduced rates if the loft & cavity wall insulation within your home needs to be upgraded. Here are some of the benefits to enjoy:
- Your heating bills could be reduced by hundreds of pounds each year.
