This company was extremely easy to deal with. The staff I had dealings with were very helpful, especially Carlo. When there was a slight hiccup with the first installation company assigned to us, Carlo got on the case immediately and reassigned another company. The company they used were extremely professional. Overall I am very pleased with the whole process.

Another heating company in let me down and said they could not proceed with my heating conversion at the kast minute due to the fact i had a coal fired back boiler. I spoke to a few firms nobody would do it.i phoned Warm Front and spoke to Carlo, we can do that mate! 1 month later i have a new combi boiler , hot water on demand and a warm house for the first time in 13 years. I am over the moon and can't thank Carlo and his lads enough. They are true professionals who know exactly what theyre doing , very tidy and will be done before you know it. Incredible service and lovely people .Thank you so much Carlo and team. I will never forget what you have done .

Great service from Carlo who was there from start to finish helping my mother save at least £4000 on a full central heating system Carlo helped us get a very good company that was brilliant and installed the system within the week of coming to survey the job and only taking one day to install Would definitely recommend this service as when I was phoning up companies myself they either wasn’t turning up or telling us we wasn’t eligible or turning up and then hearing nothing from them again Once again 5 stars for this company

What Is A Home Energy Efficiency Rating?

Home Energy Efficiency Rating  Is A Measure Of  How Energy Efficient Your Home Is.

Most homes have  An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating which is a numerical measure of a property’s energy efficiency.

It provides valuable insights into how efficient a building uses energy and offers recommendations for enhancing its energy performance.

These ratings are presented on a scale from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient), with ‘A’ being the most desirable.

Eco 4 Grants / Warm Front Grants For The UK

The ECO4 / Warm Front scheme can be worth up to £70,000 per property especially if the property is off the gas grid.

Lots of energy performance improvements are available for your home including free heating & insulation upgrades.

The Great British Insulation Scheme is available throughout the UK. 

Homes in the council tax bands A – D  can apply for free insulation without needing to be on benefits.

  1. Solid Wall Insulation Grants
  2. Free Insulation Grants

The Warm Homes Nest Scheme in Wales is a Welsh government-supported initiative that has been put in place to help reduce household carbon emissions and provide more energy efficiency measures to all Welsh homes.  

 

Free Heating Scheme  Scotland 

  • Home Energy Scotland Grant and Loan – you can now apply for grant funding without taking out a loan. A rural uplift is also available to provide extra support to rural and island homes which can face increased costs to install home improvements.
  • Warmer Homes Scotland – you could get funding from the Scottish Government to make energy efficiency improvements, like new heating or insulation. We’ll let you know if you’re eligible.
  • Private Rented Sector Landlord Loan – funding to help registered private landlords to improve the energy efficiency of their properties.
  •  For a detailed list of grants in Scotland visit MONEY MAP

Boiler Upgrade Scheme.

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme is a Government voucher scheme to help households upgrade to a renewable energy heating source. You can get £7500 voucher to upgrade your heating to an air source heat pump or solar panels.

A contribution from you is needed.

The government is investing £12 billion in Help to Heat schemes to make sure homes are warmer and cheaper to heat.

This funding is not delivered directly by the government, but through installers, local authorities, energy companies and other bodies. This includes the:

  • Boiler Upgrade Scheme
  • Home Upgrade Grant phase 2
  • Sustainable Warmth Competition
  • Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund
  • Energy Company Obligation
  • Great British Insulation Scheme

 

What do EPC ratings mean?

Here’s an explanation of EPC ratings and their implications:

A: ‘A’ rated properties are the best of energy efficiency, resulting in considerably lower energy bills. These properties typically have excellent insulation and energy-efficient heating systems.

B: Properties rated ‘B’ are also highly efficient, with good insulation and energy-saving features that make them economical to maintain.

C: A ‘C’ rating indicates compliance with the minimum energy efficiency standards set by building regulations, denoting average efficiency.

D: Properties with a ‘D’ rating have moderate energy efficiency and may need upgrades to lower energy use. Most homes in England and Wales are in this category, despite being less efficient than ‘A’, ‘B’, or ‘C’ rated homes.

E: ‘E’ rated properties are inefficient and incur higher energy costs, but they can be improved with energy-saving modifications.

F: An ‘F’ rating reflects poor efficiency, leading to high energy expenses. Major enhancements are required for a better rating.

G: ‘G’ rated properties are the least efficient, with the highest energy expenses, necessitating extensive energy-saving interventions for improvement.

Absolutely.
I have worked in these schemes for over 11 years and have made a decent living finding customers who qualify.

Are There grants for people Not On A Benefit?

There is a scheme called LA Flex that some UK councils are signed up to which allows people to apply for a grant without having to be on a benefit. The scheme is very sparse though and your council will have its own criteria. We recommend you make an application and we will try to assist you.

Are There Free heating Grants For Disabled?

All Disability Benefits and other ones too have been removed from qualifying unfortunately.

See below for a list of all the benefits that have been removed from qualifying for an Eco 4 grant

Are There Any Grants For Landlords?

As a landlord, you may be eligible for an Warm Front grant if your tenants are in receipt of qualifying benefits.

They must be deemed to be on a low income, suffer from a health condition impacted by living in a cold home or are experiencing fuel poverty.

Your property will also need to be E Rated.

Are There Any Grants For Park Homes?

NO – We have been waiting for a couple of years for Park Homes to be included in the Free Eco Grants Scheme to no avail.

It seems the Government have no interest in helping people who reside in Park Homes.

I cannot see there being any in the future too probably because of their size and minimal carbon saved by insulating these homes.

Can you get solar panels on scheme?

 Under the ECO4 scheme, you may be eligible for free Solar Panel installation which can help you generate your own electricity and save you up to 70% on your energy bills.

Homeowners must meet income and property requirements to receive a 100 % grant for free solar panels.  In some cases a free heat pump installation is available too.

Only properties that are Off Gas and have an EPC of F or G will qualify. These properties represent the worst efficient homes which are prioritised for grant funding.

Free Solar Panels - Who Is Eligible

Homeowners must meet the usual  income and property requirements to receive  free solar panels on the ECO4 scheme.

Both solar panel grants and heat pump installations grants are available to the worst efficient homes in the UK particularly rural areas off the gas grid.

Oil heated homes and electric homes stand the best chance of being successful for Free Solar Panels.

  1. On a low-income, vulnerable and a fuel poor household.
  2. Property owner or landlord.
  3. An inefficient heating system that has a E-G energy efficiency rating.
  4. Off Gas Home  that runs entirely off electricity  / Oil  / LPG 

 

Free Heat Pumps - Who Is Eligible?

Your Home Is Heated By  ✅ Off Gas Heating  ✅ Electric  ✅Oil LPG 

Are There Free Doors And Windows?

ECO4 was originally supposed to cover 100% of the cost of double glazing as well as new doors and was initially proposed at the start of the scheme.

This has now been discontinued and there is nothing available now in this area.

Free Insulation

You need to  have electric  / Oil or LPG heating  fitted in the property

 

Are There Grants For Landlords?

As a landlord, you may be eligible for an ECO4 grant if your tenants are in receipt of qualifying benefits.

They must be deemed to be on a low income, suffer from a health condition impacted by living in a cold home or are experiencing fuel poverty.

Your property will also need to be E Rated.

Insulating homes

The scheme takes a fabric-first approach, which means it focuses on improving the building itself before installing new heating systems.

In fact, any home with an efficiency rating of ‘E’ or below will have to install loft, roof, and exterior-facing cavity wall insulation before improving any existing heating systems.

Can I get a grant for a new roof in Wales?

Grants for a new roof are usually given providing your home falls into the category of being below living standards and the occupants of a property being at serious risk. You can apply for the Home Repair Assistance Grant but it is discretionary, so there’s a chance you could apply and be turned down.

ECO4 Insulation Measures - Stop Heat Escaping.

A typical home without insulation can lose 33% of its heat through its walls and 25% through the roof?

Insulating your home properly can improve keeping the heat in and reduce heat loss.

Adding insulation to your loft, walls and floor will help you keep your home warm, wasting less energy and lowering your home’s carbon emissions

The Benefits Of Insulation

Well-insulated homes are much better for your health too.

There is no question that living in a cold home can cause health issues, and heighten pre-existing ones.

Insulating your home to the latest guidance also means that you can prevent damp, which can cause mould and mildew.

Can I get free insulation in Wales?

Yes but you will have to have your heating upgraded too.
 
Free insulation grants as a single measure have now ended in favour of a whole house approach.

Nest For Landlords Requirements

A private landlord must be registered with Rent Smart Wales and be able to provide  their registration number

  • Private landlord can refer a maximum of three properties to the Nest scheme
  •  gas safety Certificates must be valid 
  • Private tenants must have resided in the property for a minimum of six months prior to a Nest application
  • Private tenants must have a valid tenancy agreement with six months left to run,
  • Private tenants will need to show proof of residency/address to the assessor to demonstrate they have been in the property for six months prior to application (e.g. utility bill or council tax bill) and a valid tenancy agreement

Free Insulation Scotland

One of the most effective methods to increase your homes energy efficiency is to ensure you have good insulation for your walls & Loft.

As part of the Eco 4 Scheme , all heating applicants will need to have any insulation that is needed prior to any heating upgrade.

You will NOT be able to get any type of heating grant unless you have your home insulated.

That is the new rule for Eco 4. Ventilation Package is also mandatory too.

Ground Source Heat Pumps Scotland – Any Grants?

The grant for Heat Pumps Will Only Be For £7500 whether it is an air source pump or ground source.
The installation cost of a typical ground source heat pump installation in Scotland is very likely to be a minimum of £25K. Costs Include

  • GSHP to buy £10 -£12K
  • GSHP borehole cost:  £7500 per borehole
  • GSHP trenches dig & refill cost: £5000 – £6000
  • GSHP plant room pipework & fittings cost: £3000 – £4000
  • GSHP installation and commissioning cost: £6000 – £7000

Bringing the total anywhere between £25,000 – £40,000

Can I Get A Free Oil / LPG Central Heating System For Scotland

There are no grants for oil fired or LPG central heating systems at the moment unfortunately.
This is because there are extra costs involved such as a new LPG tank which itself usually costs around £1000.
The oil boiler grant scheme was discontinued back in 2017 and so if you do not have gas in the area, you will not be able to apply.

Free Heating - Is There Such A Thing?

The only free heating you can get in this world is Heat From The Sun!

Anything else has to be paid for unfortunately.

You can heat your home with free firewood if available but collecting & chopping wood etc is very time consuming and you will pay in time.

Do pensioners get free heating?

No.

OAPs on means tested benefits can get help towards paying their heating bills as well as applying for the grants on this site but subsidies are all they can hope for.
