Found 11th Sep 2012
So far we have helped to warm up over 1 million homes and your home could be next. Because for the first time, absolutely anyone can apply for our free insulation - even if you’re not a British Gas customer. It’s worth £1000, including materials and labour and, could save you hundreds of pounds each year. But don’t hang about, this free offer ends on 30th November.

Thanks for the info. Just booked and all seems good.

does anyone need theres doing i work for mark group the largest insulation company and we offer the same basically we don't use the polysterene balls which British Gas use. Also you get a 25 Cavity Insulation Guarantee and a loft insulation guarantee. Also we have been on the news and also should note energy companies do not do the installation they send a engineer from an insulation company like us.

The go-to link just refreshes this page.

Not really if anyone in the house hold receive any benefits its free or with the mark group if I surveyed your house most it would be £69 for loft and £69/£89 for cavity wall insulation which is better than paying over £200+ where if you need it both doing and its 90mm or below not 60mm I can still secure the funding it would only typically cost £138/158 which is a saving before winter bills rise anyways.

The offer with British Gas is Free for ALL not just those in receipt of benefits. You do not need to be a British Gas customer. I know this as my husband works for them.

Thats why I posted the newspaper article in post one so that people could see that a reporter had already attempted to uncover any shortcomings.

It is legit for anyone whether they are a Britsh Gas customer or not

It seems that many are misreading the offer.
The bit about benefits relates to .............What if my loft is full? Is there help available to clear it
