Park Home Grants News

The long awaited grants for Park Homes may be finally kickstarted and  we are hoping to hear something after Xmas.

Funding has been approved now but installers are not taking any applications just yet.

This could be down to funding levels as the  government are notorious for not giving enough  funding for some properties.

If installers cannot make a profit on some property types, they will not accept any grant applications unfortunately.

 

Will The Park Home Grants Be Fully Funded?

COSY HOME 1

 

We believe that the Government is not giving 100% grants for Park Homes and that all applicants will need to pay a contribution towards any measure.

Rumours are the External Wall Insulation will need a contribution of £999 and boilers £699.

Please do not apply if you are not willing to make a contribution towards your grant.

Grants For Energy Bills For Park Homes Can Be Found Here 

 

Why are Park homes so expensive to heat?

Park homes, especially older park homes, can be less energy efficient and a lot more poorly insulated than other types of properties.
This means that the  cost to maintain comfortable heating levels are very high.
Improving the insulation to your park home is recommended.

What Insulation Is Needed For Park Homes?

Insulation can be fitted to the external walls, roof or under the floor of your home.

Wall insulation:

Walls are usually insulated  by fixing insulated panels to the exterior of the home after which a layer of render and decorative coating is applied.

Another way of doing it is by using timber battens and insulation which is applied to the exterior and then overclad with new finishes.

 

Windows

Note: As part of the works to install wall insulation to your park home, the windows will need to be moved outwards to line through with the outer skin and re-sealed.

As a result, you may wish to consider replacing the windows at the same time as installing the insulation to ensure you get the best benefit from the works.

You can apply for an upgrade of existing single glazing or triple glazing but we do not anticipate any grant funding for this measure.

 

Roof insulation:

Often carried out at the same time as the replacement of roof finishes, appropriately specified roof insulation will improve the energy performance of your home whilst ensuring the roof space is well ventilated (allowing air circulation and preventing condensation).

Underfloor insulation:

In most cases this will involve installing foil coated thermal insulation to the underside of the home.

Some systems apply spray foam directly to the underside of the floor, but this is likely to seal all the pipes and wiring, preventing any future access.

Do I need permission?

Fitting external wall insulation is likely to change the appearance of your property, and so you may need planning permission to do this.
Check with your local authority before going ahead.
You may also need permission from the park owner before installation, depending on your park home pitch agreement.
