Recent Updates from CEA


01 November 2018 - Recent changes to the recommendation of treating mould

As part of CEA’s commitment to ensuring we provide the most accurate and recent advice to our customers, we have an update for the recommendations on treating mould. This follows from the recent release from Beacon Pathways, which you will find below.


Where a solution of vinegar and water was previously suggested, it is recommended that warm soapy water is used instead. It is found to be the cheapest and least toxic cleaning solution to use for effectively treating different types of small mould issues.


For major mould issues, seek the advice of a professional or give us a call on 0800 GET WARM.

We are working to ensure all our advice is consistent, on our website, and through all our marketing channels.


For more information, give us a call on 0800 GET WARM, we will be happy to answer your queries.

Our Testimonials


"We’ve got underfloor and ceiling insulation now as well. We’ve gone from between, at one stage it was, $150 to $200 per week in power. Now I pay $58 a week, and we are even in credit. It makes a huge difference!"





"Your presentation was fabulous and I would like to congratulate you on the way you deliver your message and also the usefulness of it! Thanks again for sharing your great tips – We will be ensuring our household makes some changes, as well as ensure my daughter’s flat benefits from the info as well.”
