Park homes in the UK can have some of the highest energy bills as they are usually very poorly insulated and being off the gas grid are always heated by expensive fuels such as bottled gas or electricity.
Indeed many people report energy bills in excess of £300 per month.
Insulation and upgraded heating is a must for these types of homes and this blog is to inform you of what home improvement grants are available to park home occupants.
Warm Front can now offer grants for residential park home owners to help reduce heating costs which are very helpful to any occupants that are in receipt of a benefit.
