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

Full List Of Warm Front Grants

who pays for The Warm Front Scheme

All the Energy measures on this website such are funded by all the large energy companies that are signed up to the ECO4 scheme.

In reality it is the fuel bill payer that is really paying for Eco Grants via a small levy that is placed on every fuel bill.

Backboiler Grant

What is an air source heat pump?

Air source heat pumps are an  new type of renewable energy heating.

They work like a fridge in reverse by taking warmth from the air outside and using it to supply your home’s heating and hot water.

They will even work when temperatures get as low as -15C.

Heat pumps run on electricity so they will help the UK move away from fossil fuel heating. 

How do air source heat pumps work?

Air source heat pumps use the same kind of technology that  fridges and freezers use.

The pump pulls in air from outside, then uses it to heat a special refrigerant liquid.  As it warms up, the liquid turns into gas.

The warmth is compressed to increase its temperature – and provide lots of lovely heat for your home.

Once the gas has transferred its heat, it cools down, becomes liquid again. And returns to the start of the cycle.

The process only uses electricity and has an energy efficiency of over 350% – compared to an A-rated gas boiler, which is about 90% efficient.

Are There grants for biomass boilers?

Homeowners  can now get a grant of £7,500 to help with the installation costs of Biomass Boiler on the Boiler Upgrade Scheme .

To qualify for a Biomass grant under this Eco 4 Scheme your property must either be located in a rural area, or in area with no mains gas supply.

Do you have to pay back any grant?

This is grant funding meaning you won’t have to pay it back if you’re eligible.
 
It is difficult to get a grant now but we recommend you put in an application.

How long will The Warm Front Scheme last?

Warm Front  measures are set  to be delivered from the 1 April 2022  until 31 March 2026.

Are There Warm Front 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.

Why do I need to have ventilation measures installed in my property?

 
When insulating a property it’s important to have adequate airflow throughout the property.
 
Warm Front Funding requires that all installers install ventilation measures. These include mechanical ventilation such as extractor fans to the kitchen and bathrooms, trickle vents to windows, and under door cuts.
You will not get a grant if you refuse to have ventilation measures unfortunately.

Not Had A Response To Your application Who do you contact?

You probably not been successful in your application if you  have not heard anything within 7 days.

Please call us on  the number at the top of our page and we will give you a free check to see if you qualify.

Warm Front - Insulation Is Mandatory

Consumer protection magazine Which? found that installing loft insulation can reduce your energy bills by up to £215 per year.

As heat rises, and in most houses more than 25% of the heat inside the home escapes through the roof, which makes loft insulation and room in roof insulation vital to improving your home’s energy efficiency.

An Eco4  survey involves the inspection of existing loft and wall  insulation. All loft insulation will be increased to 270 mm in order to improve the energy efficiency.

Loft insulation is effective for an extremely long period of time, with some loft insulation remaining effective for at least 40 years.

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 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.

What Is The recommended thickness for loft insulation

The recommended thickness for loft insulation in the United Kingdom is 270mm.

 Topping up the loft insulation to 270mm allows you to benefit from reducing your heating costs and effectively increasing the energy efficiency of your home.

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.
