Energy Efficiency Work
Solid Wall Insulation
The internal insulation programme has running for one year now. During this time we have insulated 112 homes. We now have 5 teams working on the project and are currently completing around 15 properties per month.
By the end of July 2015 we had worked in the Duke Street area, Austin, Old Sinfin, Allenton and Alvaston. Our next area will be Spondon.
Other areas that we will be working in are Chellaston, City Centre, Littleover, and the Sussex Circus area.
The work entails fixing thermally insulated plasterboards to the inside of walls and applying a plaster skim for a smooth finish. The work will increase the warmth of solid brick houses and will help to reduce the cost of heating bills.
We will write to you when we are due to work in your area and ask you to contact us to make an appointment, if you are considering having the work done. We will then do a small survey of your home and arrange a start date with you.
If you live in any of the areas where we have already worked and you decide you would like to have the work done, it’s not too late, please contact us.
***The work will help to keep your home warm and reduce your heating bills***
Most of the lofts in Derby Homes properties are insulated adequately and over recent years, those that didn’t have adequate loft insulation have received an upgrade.
We will shortly start a very small programme of loft insulation top-ups to properties that have less than 150mm of insulation.
If you think that you may need additional insulation, please contact Derby Homes’ Customer Service Centre who can check our records and see how much insulation you currently have.
Cavity Wall Insulation
We will shortly start a very small programme of cavity wall insulation for properties with cavities that were not previously insulated.
If you think that you may need cavity wall insulation, please contact us, we can check our records and see how much insulation you currently have.
