Ocean Housing is investing £3.7million in improving the energy efficiency of some of its homes.
Following a successful pilot, we have also been awarded additional grant funding by an energy provider which means we can carry out work to more homes. The work will include the renewal of roofs and external insulation of qualifying Cornish Units.
This will help to reduce the energy costs associated with living in this style of home and ensure residents are able to keep all rooms a comfortable temperature.
In order to be eligible for the improvements, the home must be “Hard to Heat”, as specified by the energy provider.
This means your home must have uninsulated ground and first floor walls. It may also have electric night storage heaters or oil heating.
Letters will be sent out shortly to inform those living in qualifying Cornish Units whose homes are scheduled for renovations during the first phase of improvements.
We will be contacting others who qualify closer to the time that work is scheduled to take place at their address.
This will begin with a meeting at your home and a survey of your property in its current condition.
