Manchester residents are being invited to slash hundreds of pounds off their heating bills this winter by applying for free or discounted insulation.
Residents are being urged to apply to see if their property is suitable for free cavity wall or loft insulation, which could see them saving £250 a year from their energy bills.
The offer is being made as part of the Get Me Toasty campaign, the £1.5m insulation scheme which is managed by Manchester City Council and is also running in the other nine Greater Manchester boroughs.
The Energy Saving Trust, which is also supporting the scheme, says a house can lose up to 60 per cent of its heating through its walls and roof.
The campaign returned this autumn and aims to help up to 100,000 Greater Manchester residents save hundreds on their fuel bills.
However the scheme is only available for private tenants and owner-occupiers.
The scheme's mascot, Mr Toast, launched the new scheme at Manchester's Eco House in Miles Platting last weekend.
Manchester residents can visit the house on Penzance Street on pre-booked tours which offer advice about energy efficiency improvements and how to save money on fuel bills. Contact Diana Clayton on 0161 234 5499 for more information.
Cllr Nigel Murphy, Manchester City Council's executive member for the environment, said: "With energy prices set to rise yet again, the cost of keeping warm is a serious concern for a lot of Manchester residents.
"I'd urge all residents to visit the Get Me Toasty website or contact the Energy Saving Trust to find out how they can save hundreds of pounds on their fuel bills his winter."
