FREE INSULATION

FREE Cavity Wall & Loft Insulation!

Free Cavity Wall Insulation is available to all private UK householders, regardless of how much you earn or whether you receive benefits.

Free Loft Insulation can be claimed by anyone living in a postcode area where income levels are generally low. Even if you don't qualify for Free Loft Insulation, a grant of 50% to 100% is available, depending on the efficiency of the property.

Home Insulation Grants do not have to be paid back. As long as you qualify, an installer will complete the work then claim the grant to cover the cost of the work.

Grants are available to homeowners and private tenants and are part of the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) and the Green Deal. Under ECO, Energy Suppliers including British Gas, E.ON, Npower, Scottish Power, SSE and EDF are obliged to pay for insulation in domestic households.

100% grants are subject to a free, no-obligation survey. In most cases it is free but you
may be asked to pay a small contribution, depending on the size and efficiency of the property.

Who qualifies for a Cavity Wall Insulation grant?

All private householders can qualify for a 100% free grant. You can also qualify if you own more than 50% of a Housing Association property. Council and Housing Association tenants will not qualify under the ECO grant scheme through EnergyLink.

You do not need to be in receipt of any benefits or living in a certain area to qualify.

Please see our Cavity Wall Insulation page for more information.

Who qualifies for a Loft Insulation grant?

As with Cavity Insulation, the property must be owned or privately rented. More than 50% ownership of a Housing Association property will also qualify. Council / Housing Association tenants do not qualify for a grant through EnergyLink.

There are two types of Loft Insulation grant:

1) Qualifying postcode area - FREE

Householders in some parts of the country qualify for free Loft Insulation if they live in a low-income postcode area where there is a higher likelihood of fuel poverty. If you live in one of these areas, you can claim free Loft Insulation regardless of benefits or circumstances.

2) Non-qualifying postcode area - 50% to 100%

If you do not live in a qualifying postcode area, a grant of 50% to 100% can be claimed, depending how much insulation is already installed. Loft Insulation typically costs in the region of £400 so you may have to make a contribution of £49 to £199.

Please see our Loft Insulation page for more information.

OTHER CRITERIA:
  • Home Owners and Private Tenants
    NOT Council or Housing Association.
  • Not for DIY projects. Must be fitted
    by an EnergyLink approved installer.
  • No damp on the walls or ceilings.
    Some condensation is acceptable.

Are there grants for other Insulation types?

Unfortunately, there are no grants for other types of insulation. The Green Deal Cashback scheme which provided grants of up to £4,000 towards the cost of External Wall Insulation was closed by the UK Government in July 2015.

The Green Deal Finance scheme which was a loan against the property re-paid through savings on energy bills also ceased when DECC stopped lending money to the Green Deal Finance Company.

EnergyLink can arrange a free survey and quote from an accredited local installer of External Wall Insulation. Please see our External Wall Insulation page for more information.

How can EnergyLink help?

EnergyLink have a network of approved installers working throughout England, Scotland and Wales. All installers have access to ECO grants and can carry out a free, no-obligation survey of the property.

Our Online Application form will tell you which grant you are likely to qualify for and whether we have an approved installer working in your postcode area. Once you have completed the form, we will check your details before passing them to an approved Installer who will contact you to arrange a survey.

If you are happy to proceed after the survey, a date will be booked for the installation. Following the installation, the installer will claim the grant amount you are entitled to. If you need to pay towards the work, this will be invoiced on completion.

EnergyLink have been helping customers with Free Home Insulation grants and other incentives since June 2007. Click here to learn more about why you should use our service.
