“The team did a fantastic job of reinstalling the insulation that had been roughly put up and finishing off the part that hadn’t been started. It’s a really neat job. Without the government grant, we honestly would have put off getting this done for at least 5 years as having just bought this house (out first home) in November 2019 we do not have any spare money for this sort of thing. I’m also grateful to Cosy Homes for referring us to this service as without their recommendation we would not have known this was an option for us and would still be living without underfloor insulation!”
