Free Cavity Wall Insulation – Is This a Scam?
Do you know what? If it sounds too good to be true, almost always, it is too good to be true! However – this is just one of those times when – actually – it is true!
We were contacted the other day by a gentleman going by the name of Jim Mathieson, offering free cavity wall insulation and free loft insulation. First off he rang and spoke to my wife who (if I’m honest, to get rid of him) suggested he call when I was in and speak to me. He did call again and at the time he had been asked to call, which helped his credibility no end! As I had a friend who had recently told me he was having cavity wall insulation and loft insulation installed absolutely free of charge, I was prepared to listen. Plus our heating bills are HUGE!
Free Cavity Wall Insulation – Does My House Have Cavity Walls?
He needed to know when my house was built and as I didn’t know if we have cavity walls, he asked me to tell him a couple of details about how the visible bricks on the outside wall were orientated. If you have a lot of half brick studs showing in amongst the regular brickwork, these are the bricks that join a solid two bricks thick wall together and you don’t have cavity walls.

Jim then went on to explain why it was possible that he could be offering free cavity wall insulation. To cut it short, the energy companies are required to hit certain quotas with regard to the energy efficiency of homes in the UK. They aren’t hitting the targets and as they will be fined hugely if they don’t meet them, the lesser of two evils is to pay contractors (or make grants available) to install loft insulation and cavity wall insulation free of charge to the consumer. They are running out of time as the deadline is approaching and so, this is an opportunity that will be disappearing soon – once they are satisfied that they have hit the required quotas! Don’t wait too long to get it done.
Free Cavity Wall Insulation – Looks Like It Isn’t A Scam After All!
As a good friend of mine had just had his house insulated free, and as Jim was extremely plausible, I began to be convinced that the call was genuine and the opportunity was indeed free! Plus, we do have quite hefty heating bills, and I really could do with getting these down somehow. I made the appointment for the surveyor to come round – Jim gave me a couple of dates and times and we agreed the appointment for a week or so from now.

Having made the appointment and been given the name of the local surveyor as well as Jim’s free 0800 contact number, I did just check online that the “story” regarding power companies being penalised for not hitting targets was true. Sure enough, it’s all over the web that whilst loft and cavity wall insulation was recently being offered at a great discount, now it IS being offered absolutely free of charge! Jim encouraged me to “tell all my friends” and give out his number, so here I am doing just that.
