How Do Grants For Insulation Work ?

The Scheme  for 2022 Is A WHOLE HOUSE SCHEME.

YOU CANNOT HAVE SINGLE  INSULATION MEASURES ANYMORE

Any insulation that is needed will be identified as well as checking your existing heating for possible upgrade.

 

Why  A Government Grant For Free Insulation?

Free Loft Insulation 1

Free Government Grants For Home Insulation  are available in England, Scotland and Wales and are funded via the Energy Company Obligation (ECO)  to improve the efficiency of homes.

These Grants have helped many people to lower their heating bills and are funded by  a levy to every fuel bill in the uk .

Your heating bills will increase year on year, so we recommend insulating the whole of your property .

Insulating your  the floors, loft, and walls  will give you maximum savings to your bills.

Free Insulation – Is There a Catch

There Is No Catch- You will qualify or you wont.

Free Home  Insulation Scheme  is 100% real and still available for 2022 .

I personally  have been responsible for thousands of loft installs over the last 9 years and is currently how I earn a living.

 

Are All Properties Eligible For Free Insulation ?

Not all homes are suitable for  insulation and will be subject to a free survey.

For a household to qualify  :

  • Your loft must have none or minimal insulation
  • Your Home must have all insulation that is required ( whole house approach)
  • Your heating must be upgraded if needed
  • Your Home Has An Epc Rating Of  D – E -F -G
  • You must be in receipt of a qualifying benefit or on a low income
  • The property must be owned or be rented from a private landlord.

Does The Insulation Grant Have To Be Paid Back.

This is a grant so it does not have to be repaid and you will not be expected to have to pay the insulation installer.

The installer will claim the grant on your behalf and ensure your 25 year warranty is registered.

 

Are All Government Insulation Grants 100% Free?

Under the ECO scheme the ‘Big Six’ utility companies are obliged to provide funding to households that have to improve the efficiency of their homes.

This is in part to achieve the government’s goal of being net carbon neutral by 2050 but as a main aim of tackling fuel poverty across the UK.

There have been over 2.4 million free installations of insulation since the government brought in the scheme to reduce fuel poverty.

Please see the Ofgem Site for more on this government scheme

 

Is Free Insulation Available To all Homes In The UK?

Free insulation grants available through the ECO 3 scheme were created to help low income households in England, Scotland and Wales make their homes more energy efficient and lower their ever increasing heating bills.

The ECO scheme offers grants available for a number of different types of home insulation and applicants can be eligible for more than one grant.

Not every household can apply and there are certain criteria that have to be met to qualify for the scheme.

Eligible households can then apply for an insulation grant and upon successful completion a registered insulation installer will install the insulation of your property.

This is a non repayable grant so it does not have to be repaid at any time in the future. A 25 year full warranty is also included.

When does The Government Insulation Scheme End?

I would think the  Insulation Scheme would carry on throughout Eco 4 until the end at 2026.

This is because the governments target for being carbon neutral by 2050 has to be met and free insulation is the best way to achieve it.

Joe Public has always been reluctant to shell out for insulation measures so there is a strong chance that free insulation will be open to all the uk in the next few years.

We shall see.

 

Yes they do
Pensioners, whether they are a home owner or a renter, are eligible for home improvement grants including free insulation  through this government-backed funded scheme too.
Pensioners will need to be claiming Pension Credit either savings credit or Gaurantee Credit to qualify.

Is There Grant For Insulation In Northern Ireland?

Unfortunately the Eco funding is not available for Northern Ireland so we will not be able to accept any applications.

Yes.  Scotland does qualify under the Eco Scheme for Free Insulation as well as Wales too.

Scottish energy Grants seem to have all of Scotland sewn up and we recommend you contact them if you live in Scotland as they their contractors will be a lot quicker than ours.

Alos There is a Warmer Homes Scheme especially for Scotland to

 

Are There Grants For Foam Insulation?

There are at present no grants for foam insulation.

There has been a lot of bad press recently about the relatively new kid on the block ( I only have heard of it in the last  few years or so) of the use  spray foam insulation to insulate your roof rafters.

This is currently being sold via cold calling and direct mailing  to lots of potential clients who are having to part with up to £5000 for the privilege of having this installed in their loft.

It is a most expensive way to insulate your loft in my opinion with no or minimal benefit to the end user.

We strongly recommend you do not have foam insulation in your home at any cost.

The link below will show you that foam has no use in a domestic home and you should use traditional tried and tested insulation instead.

Conclusion

If you are thinking about having this fitted to your home, please take into account the above content.

For your loft you should only have it sprayed onto your loft floor to create a barrier to your heat entering the loft.

Alternatively, have Rockwool insulation rolled out instead.

Do not have your rafters sprayed as all the heat will be wasted once in the loft unless you wish to keep the squirrels and mice nice and warm in the loft.
