Has Anyone Had Free Boiler Grant From Berkshire Insulation Ltd?

Recommended Posts

As title says,  I've had them knock on my door few days ago, they seemed legit but wondered if anyone has dealt with them before and if they do a good job?

Company search on that name hasn't revealed anything, so probably is not registered at Companies House.

Eco government backed boiler grant scheme is legit and still available for householders who are on qualifying benefits and the boiler is over a certain age. There are some changes coming in the new year which will mostly require smaller properties with three bedroom or less to make contribution, so if you qualify don't hang around but due diligence is required as always.

Think you will find out its not as simple as that . They want you to spend about 5 thousand on  the property for you qualify be carefull /     This is not like a warm front scheme it expired and not replaced yet  .

Be wary of anyone banging on door gjveing things away

Or them to spend money to qualify on things like cavity insulation / under floor insulation . 

Wait untill gov puis a new scheme out

There is nothing to spend unless a small property, in which case there is a contribution, which you are told beforehand.

Since when was having cavity wall insulation or under floor insulation a bad thing?

Spend 5 thousand? on what? Why would anybody ask to spend 5 thousand when cost of having new boiler is considerably less.

Have you any idea what its like putting under floor insulation in  What gives you the idea 

filling cavitys is a good thing . Have you talked to these people like me. 

I am a retired bricklayer builder built hundreds of houses they soon did a runner after 5 mins talking to me 

This is an insulation firm and are cold calling illegally 

A little but true story . I once had a knock on the door a man stood there said 

congradulations you have won a thousand pounds i said you keep it i dont 

want it yes he was a cold caller good salesman brilliant

I have plenty idea what putting putting under floor insulation is like, I SEE it done on a daily basis unlike a 'brickie' expert. As regards cavity wall insulation, there is nothing to suggest it's a bad idea after a proper survey, it is installed in every new house and thousands have had it done retro-fit. The problem only arises in some houses because of built, location and material used. Sometimes people move on even after a couple of minutes as not to waste their time any further not because the other person is right. Remember you started with a boiler of five thousand pounds? By the way which law are you stating cold calling is illegal?

Cold calling .If you need to know anything else just ask .By the way i was also a a clerk of works for 8 years for basset law counciil  / Perhaps you can tell me how to survey a house that has been built  for 5 years plus  to make sure there is no mortar on tie irons  .Keep em coming you make me smile

Cold calling. Asked you a simple question, which law says it's illegal.

Five thousand boiler, in your world only.

Under floor insulation, you've never done one.

Cavity wall insulation, gave you a complete rundown, how, when and why.

One  minute your a 'brickie', then your a building expert with the local council.

 

You use a borescope to inspect wall ties, I have two, rigid and flexible.

 

Hard for people like you admit, you have no idea what your talking about?

You keep shifting. Your smiling at your own stupidity, ego won't let you admit it.

Now you KNOW why people moved on from you within 5 minutes.
