Our office will be closed for the Christmas holidays from Wednedsay 20th December, 2017, re-opening on Wednesday 3rd January, 2018. If you would like to contact us, please email and we will respond on our return.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2018.

Karnheath Ltd is excited to launch a brand new company website. With so many changes recently in the insulation industry and the development of the government’s new initiative schemes such as ECO and Green Deal, we felt it was time to move with the changes. The new website provides customers with information about the new grant schemes as well as how to take advantage of Karnheath’s private insulation services and payment plans. We really like the new fresh, modern design and we hope you do too. We would love to hear your thoughts…..

The British Board of Agrement (BBA) have approved Karnheath Ltd to PAS 2030: 2012 for installing both loft and cavity wall insulation to domestic dwellings throughout the North East. This is a mandatory requirement for insulation contractors wishing to install under the Governments’ new initiative known as The Green Deal or ECO. If you would like further information on Karnheath or the Green Deal, please contact our sales team on 0800 378274.


Karnheath Ltd are pleased to announce that all properties can now be insulated completely free of charge, regardless of home owners/tenants age or benefit entitlement.

The free for all insulation programme will only run until October 2012 when the Green Deal will come into force.

If you would like to schedule a free, no obligation survey for loft or cavity wall insulation, please don’t hesitate to contact us on our free phone number 0800 378274 or email us using our contact us form. Surveys only take approximately 10 minutes to carry out and we can schedule the work within a couple of days.

The energy performance certificate is required by European law and rates the efficiency of the property.

The EPC rates the home for energy efficiency from A (very efficient) to G (very inefficient).

The average rating in the UK is D but potential buyer and tenants have been advised to look for homes rated C and above.

This encourages home owners wishing to sell or rent their property to invest in energy effecient measures such as insualation.

Installing both Loft and Cavity Wall Insulation can save around £265 per year on energy bills, paying for itself in less than two years and reducing carbon emmissions dramactically.

Over 40% of CO2 emissions in the UK come directly from what individuals do, i.e using electricity, heating homes.

The great thing about reducing your carbon footprint is that simple changes make a big difference:

  • Turning off lights
  • Switching appliances off at the mains
  • Turning your thermostat down by one degree

This not only reduces your carbon footprint but will reduce your fuel bills too!

If every home can install 270mm of loft insulation it would save £3.8 million tones of CO2, that’s the same as the annual emissions for around 650,000 homes

As much as a third of the heat you pay for could be escaping through your roof. Most loft insulation materials work by preventing the movement of heated air through the material. The Government says that you cut your energy bill by up to 20% through effectively insulating your loft.

Everyone can make a difference by taking action today!

Not many estate agents or private landlords are aware, but you can claim up to £1500 per property to improve the loft, cavity wall and solid wall insulation completely free of charge to all of your properties.

How does it work?
There is currently grant funding available for all properties to have their loft and cavity wall insulation done*. A fixed contribution of between £149 and £199 is applicable to each property. However the entire fixed contribution can be claimed back through the landlords self assessment.

You can read further details at the Direct Government Website

We are offering all landlords and estate agents free, no obligation surveys to assess if any of their properties qualify for free loft and cavity wall insulation.

To arrange an appointment, contact Alex on 0800 378 274 or alternatively visit

*Terms and Conditions Apply: Current loft insulation needs to be 4” or less and there must be an unfilled cavity in the property. Properties built prior to 1920’s are unlikely to have a cavity wall.

Karnheath Ltd like to check with their customers from time to time what they thought of upgrading their home with energy saving measures like loft and cavity wall insulation.
Dave Mastaglio from Camperdown in Newcastle upon Tyne spared a few minutes to tell us what he thought.

Why did you first enquire into loft and cavity wall insulation?
After spending 5 freezing winters without insulation, I found out you could get grants, so I called Karnheath Ltd to find out more.
Did you wait long for a surveyor to call to check the current insulation you had?
Nope, the survey was pretty much done the next day.
Which insulation measure did you opt for?
Loft insulation, I would have liked to have had the cavity walls done but unfortunately I live in a solid wall property.
Were you eligible for a grant for the work?
Apparently my energy supplier was eligible to pay most of the costs despite not receiving any benefits.
How soon was the work booked in from survey?
The next week I think
Was there any issues with regards to getting the work done?
Nope, none
Have you noticed a considerable difference in your home with regards to retaining heat or anything else?
Well I’ve not been cold this year!
Would you recommend loft or cavity wall insulation to others?

Did you know that the current building regulation for loft insulation is 270mm of quilt? That’s 11inches of insulation to bring your home up to date.

Most homes, that haven’t been insulated in over 10 years will have the incorrect amount of loft insulation. If you have 4 inches or less currently in your loft (i.e. below the joists) you can qualify for a 50-70% grant to have it topped up, helping you keep your home warm as well as reducing your carbon footprint.
