British Gas Incentive
British Gas have announced a new incentive for people who refer vulnerable family members, friends or neighbours for free loft and cavity insulation from the utility company.
There are certain criteria however for those who qualify for free insulation as they must be on pension credit, certain income related benefits or in receipt of child tax credits and has an income of less than £16,190.
There is however no limit to the amount of people that can be referred and for each person passed to British Gas the company will pay £50 to the referrer. In addition the referred customer will also receive £50 after the insulation has been carried out.
British Gas is offering free insulation to all new and existing customers however, neither the referrer nor the beneficiary need to be a British Gas customer to take advantage of the £50 incentive.
There are other companies offering incentives for people to take up their offer of free insulation with E.ON paying £100 per household, while Southern Electric are giving £25 to anyone taking up their free insulation offer.
Managing director of British Gas New Energy, Jon Kimber, said: "With household budgets stretched we know that people are looking at ways to save money. £1.00 in every £4.00 spent on heating is wasted due to poor insulation, so energy efficiency can have a massive impact."
For any customer who may be interested in taking up the offer from British Gas should call their insulation team on the landline free phone number 0800 975 1195. They will arrange a free survey of the property at a suitable time for the customer. It is essential the call is made by the customer who is considering having installation installed and they should pass over details of the person who referred them to British Gas.
