Insulation grants to make homes warmer and more comfortable

Home insulation grants

The Eco3 scheme was launched in October 2018, and it was designed to make houses warmer and more comfortable to live in. Currently, the Government has a ranch of grants to improve the energy performance of the homes of many lower-income or vulnerable people. The grants are split into 3 main categories, insulation grants, funding for gas boilers for people who have never had it before and grants for high retention storage heaters to replace old inefficient storage heaters. There is specific qualifying criteria click here to see the full list and check your eligibility.

Loft Insulation

There are many different types of insulation available which all serve different purposes, one of the most common is loft insulation where rock wool is placed across the floor in the loft. There is currently availability to have this installed in your home for free under the government Eco3 scheme. This can be installed fast and the average house will save in the region of £250 per year on their fuel bills.

Room in roof insulation

Research has been carried out that shows around 25% of heat loss in homes originates from poorly insulated roof spaces. Many traditional homes were built with attic spaces the term room in roof refers to there being a fixed staircase to the attic. At the time of construction, these spaces weren’t insulated properly or the materials used weren’t fit for purpose. If you have a house with attic space and would like to talk about the potential of free insulation to save you money then we would love to hear from you.

Internal wall insulation

Internal wall insulation is the process of insulating the internal side of external walls. In solid-walled properties around 50% of heat loss can be attributed to the walls in the home. This form of insulation is especially popular with more traditional character-filled homes where you might not want to be drilling holes in the exterior. Internal wall insulation involves placing insulated boards with plastered outside across the walls of your home. This not only provides excellent insulation benefits but many people like it because of the aesthetic because they get fresh smooth walls.

Under Floor Insulation

If you have inadequate or worse, no underfloor insulation your home will experience around 15% heat loss from the floor alone. This is particularly a problem in older houses that were built using raised timber floorboards. Gaps like this can cause annoying chilly drafts in the colder months. Under the current Eco3 scheme we can install underfloor insulation to your home which will tackle the draughts but more importantly will save you money on your fuel bills.
