Insulation Grant

There are many types of insulation grants available for most of the UK that fall under various schemes like the national "Affordable Warmth scheme" , the "Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) scheme" along with various local incentive schemes. The qualification process changes regularly and if you have been unsuccessful before we recommend that you try again every six months or so as the criteria alters. The easiest way to see if you or your household qualifies for any of these grants is to complete the form and your local assessor will advise what grants are available.

Before applying It is useful to ascertain which measure is most suitable for your property, chiefly whether your walls have a cavity or not as the grant procedure differs for each type of insulation. If you are unsure please see below for tips on how to tell how your walls are likely to be constructed.

Loft insulation grants.

apply

About 25% of heat from UK homes is lost through the roof, specifically the loft / attic area. Insulation should be applied to the loft area to a depth of 270mm, both between the joists and above. Loft insulation, Cavity wall and Room in Roof insulation can all be applied for using the same short application form. Grants are only available for England, Scotland and Wales.More...

Room in roof insulation grants.

apply

If your attic is accessed by a fixed staircase (not a ladder) and you have an attic room or dormer roof then you could benefit from Room in roof insulation. Many attic conversions were constructed with little or no insulation applied to the walls and voids. Loft insulation, Cavity wall and Room in Roof insulation can all be applied for using the same short application form. Grants are only available for England, Scotland and Wales.More...

Cavity wall insulation grants

apply

About 35% of all heat loss from UK homes takes place through external walls. Most homes built after 1920 have twin exterior walls with a narrow cavity between them. This can be filled with an insulating material by injecting insulating material into the wall. This restricts any warmth passing between them, reducing the money you spend on heating. Loft insulation, Cavity wall and Room in Roof insulation can all be applied for using the same short application form. Grants are only available for England, Scotland and Wales.More...

Solid / External Wall Insulation

apply

Solid walls can usually be insulated either by applying high density insulation material internally, externally or both. If you're unsure whether your walls have a cavity in them you can usually check by either looking at the pattern of bricks or by measuring the thickness of the walls next to a door or window. Please use the dedicated solid wall insulation application form to apply for this grant. Grants are only available for England, Scotland and Wales.More...

Wall types

Insulation wall types

If you're unsure whether your walls have a cavity in them you can usually check by either looking at the pattern of bricks or by measuring the thickness of the walls next to a door or window:

If the thickness of the wall is 260mm or greater, the wall probably has a cavity.

If the brickwork is exposed, look at the brick pattern. If the bricks are all oblong, laid end-to-end then the wall is likely to have a cavity. If some of the bricks are laid with the square end facing, the wall is likely to be solid.

If the wall is stone, it is likely to be solid.
