A typical loft insulation installation could help you save up £590 on your energy bills every year !

(Source: Energy Saving Trust, based on a previously uninsulated gas-heated detached house and fuel prices as of October 2022).

Additionally, lower carbon emissions and an overall warmer home have been proven to have benefits for long-term health, so it is always worth checking if you could qualify for free loft insulation through British Gas.

Why A Free Insulation Grant ?

There are 100%  Insulation Grants available for 2022 – 2026. The government is giving grants to the whole of the UK  for people to insulate their homes to insure against rising energy bills.

Home Owners and tenants  can make cheap improvements to their  home by tackling  insulation levels, which will reduce  heating bills by a minimum of 20% per year

The  cheapest way to insulate your home effectively is to check whether you can get a free grant.

If you are on a low income benefit or on a low income, you can apply for  free insulation for your whole house.


Why Is British Gas Funding The Free Boiler Scheme

British Gas and the other six large energy suppliers  are obligated  by law to subsidise  boiler grants and other heating grants and insulation for the most poorest members of society.

They pay for this by placing a small levy on everyones fuel bill.

Any Heating Grants or Insulation grants that are claimed are yours forever and there is no need to repay the money at all.

British Gas, one of the biggest UK energy suppliers, is an active member of the government grant scheme and have funded  thousands of free boilers over the years.
