New grants are now available to cover the cost of installing cavity wall insulation, loft insulation, solid wall insulation or a brand new free boiler. You no longer need to be in receipt of benefits to qualify for free cavity wall insulation, this is funded by UK energy companies as part of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme.
How is this possible?
Introduced as part of the Energy Act 2011, the Green Deal is designed by the government as a way of reducing carbon emissions and improving the energy efficiency of UK homes.
It allows households in the UK to have free cavity wall insulation installed free of charge in order to create a warmer, more energy efficient home. Replacement boilers can also be installed in your are in receipt of certain low-income benefits.
Who qualifies for a free non-repayable grant?
Every UK home is eligible for help towards the cost of insulation, some homes will qualify for 100% funding, and for others a £99 subsidised rate will apply. You do not need to be in receipt of benefits to qualify for free insulation.
