Ever since the first winter in their new house back in 2014, Mr and Mrs Child knew that they needed to take action to keep their property warmer.

Described in the Guardian’s Let’s Move To column as “the promised land,” with a “touch of bohemia… drifting in from Moseley”, homes in the popular south Birmingham suburb of Kings Heath are mainly either Victorian or pre-1920s, so if your property is in the B14 postcode area then you are likely to benefit from External Wall Insulation.

A keen believer in energy saving, Mr Child first came across Six Star Insulation at a community event in Kings Heath. After undertaking a free survey, Six Star helped Mr & Mrs Child secure Green Deal funding for external wall insulation to be installed on the gable wall.

“Having met our surveyor, Nathalie, and been talked through our options, we were impressed by the expertise and knowledge,” says Mr Child. “We also liked that they are a local business. The end result was good value for money and looks better than the original wall. We’ve already noticed a big difference in the temperature of our house.”
