Internal Wall Insulation Grants
The Government’s Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) and Green Deal schemes provide Internal Wall Insulation grants across England, Scotland and Wales.
If you receive a qualifying benefit, you should qualify for FREE Internal Wall Insulation, depending on the type of heating system installed. The property should also be privately owned or rented and have solid walls.
A 25 year guarantee is issued upon completion of the work from an organisation such as GDGC.

What is Internal Wall Insulation?
There are two main types of Internal Wall Insulation. Insulation boards are either fixed to the walls or a timber frame can be constructed with an insulating material placed between the timber.
Stud walls are stronger than insulation boards and can easily hold the weight of shelving, cupboards, etc. but they tend to be thicker than insulation boards. Both options will require the removal and replacement of fittings such as light switches, skirting boards, etc.
The choice of technique will depend upon how your property is constructed. Internal Wall Insulation installers will be able to advise which solution is best.
How much can Internal Wall Insulation save?
Having Internal Wall Insulation professionally installed can reduce the amount of heat being lost in the property by up to 45%. This could result in energy bill savings of up to £270 per year in a typical 3 bedroom semi-detached property, according to the Energy Saving Trust.
