Free Insulation grants help keep your home feeling warm while lowering heating bills, but installation and materials can be pricey. However, thanks to the government’s Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) scheme your home insulation can be supplied and installed for free. You will also save hundreds of pounds per year on your heating bill when your home is properly insulated.
This government free insulation scheme is an important safety net designed to make homes more energy efficient in order to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and to make it easier for vulnerable and low-income consumers to heat their homes to a comfortable level. Under the scheme, energy companies are obliged to install energy efficient technologies such as cavity wall insulation. If they do not undertake these obligations they can receive hefty fines.
You are likely to be eligible for 100% funding for the insulation of your home if you or anybody who lives with you are in receipt of one or more of the following state benefits:
To benefit from the scheme you must either be the owner of the property or a tenant with your landlord’s permission to have free insulation done. If you do not fall into any of these categories you may still be eligible for a free insulation grant. Please, enter your details here to find out.
