Insulation Grants

Insulation Grants

The Heat Project can offer a range of grants to insulate your home, funded through the Energy Company Obligation (or ECO for short).  Through ECO, energy suppliers are required to spend money to help people like you to reduce their energy bills and we work with a number of energy suppliers to help them deliver this obligation.

In some cases we can complete the insulation works free of charge but in order to confirm this we need to carry out a free survey which enables us to confirm the grant that we can claim and the cost to install the works.  Currently insulation grants are available for all households in Britain but higher grants may be available if you receive qualifying income related benefits. Landlords can also apply for grants for their rental properties and obtain the higher grants if their tenants are on benefit.

If you wish to discuss our loft insulation grants or apply to have a free survey please call us free on 0800 0 246 231 or fill in the form on the right.  We can then talk you through the best insulation options for your home and give you an idea on the likely cost and potential grant you can obtain.

Loft Insulation Grants

If your home was built before 1982 and the loft insulation hasn’t been topped up then you may have only 2 inches or less of insulation keeping you warm.  These days lofts are topped up to around 300mm or 12 inches using one layer of fibreglass between the joists and a second layer across the joists.

If your home already has 4 inches or more of insulation then a large part of the heat has already been stopped and as a result the grants we can offer you are fairly small.  Homes built after 1982 would typically have 4-6 inches of loft insulation which would have been installed as part of building regulations.

Cavity Wall Insulation Grants

If your home was built after 1935 it is likely to have cavity walls.  If your cavity walls haven’t been insulated then you could be losing up to 35% of your heat and it will be harder to keep your home at a constant temperature.  The Heat Project can offer you a grant to have your cavity walls insulated and we can manage the whole process through our local approved contractors.

Room-in-roof Insulation Grants

If you home has a room in the roof that was built or added before 1967 then it may have little or no insulation in the sloping ceiling areas.  You may also have other areas around and above the roof room which are either uninsulated or which could benefit from an insulation top up.  The Heat Project can offer grants for this work and in order for us to confirm the grant and the costs for the work we will need to carry out a free survey of your home.

Solid Wall Insulation Grants

If your home was built before 1935, or if it has timber framed walls, then the best option to insulate your walls is likely to be external wall insulation.  External wall insulation involves attaching high density insulation panels around 100mm thick to your outside walls and then finishing with either a render or dash finish.  The Heat Project can offer grants for this work although the grant is likely to only cover 10-20% of the costs of the work which could be around £8-12k for a semi detached home or £12-20k for a detached home.
