Benefits of Insulating your home, and how to claim Free Insulation Grants.

Improving the quality of our homes is fundamental to achieve the British Government’s climate change, fuel poverty, and fuel reduction targets. Insulating your home is a great way to retain heat and reduce heating costs. Whatsmore, there’s even a range of free insulation grants available, to reduce or even completely cover the cost.

Furthermore, as the host of the global climate conference (COP26) in Glasgow in November 2021, the UK can take a strong leadership role by demonstrating real action. 

The UK has some 29 million homes and they are the oldest and least energy-efficient housing stock in Europe. Every year vast amounts of precious energy are wasted in heating and, increasingly, cooling our buildings. 

In order to meet UK commitments under the Paris Agreement to stay below 1.5C, and legal obligations under the Climate Change Act 2008, as amended in 2019, emissions from heating and powering homes must be reduced by 78% in less than 15 years and then to zero by 2050. 

Nearly 15% of the UK’s total emissions comes from heating homes: an overhaul of the energy performance of the UK’s housing stock is needed to reduce the energy demand. The UK needs a nation-wide programme to upgrade almost every house. The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) 2018 report, Scaling Up Retro fit 2050, advises that nearly every home in the UK needs to be upgraded with energy efficiency measures. That is 1.5 homes per minute to the year 2050!

Through the government’s ECO scheme, many households are eligible for a grant which will cover, or contribute to, energy efficiency improvements in your home including free insulation

Launched in 2013, the ECO scheme has already helped thousands of residents stay warm and meet their fuel costs. Thanks to the grant, improvements such as insulation, upgraded heating systems and new boilers can be installed for a small contribution, or even for free , this means their residents living in fuel poverty can finally enjoy warm homes as well as lower fuel bills. If you are eligible for the scheme we’ll come to your home to complete a full survey. We’ll establish what your home needs to become properly energy efficient, and then make plans for installation. That could include measures such as improved loft, room, or underfloor insulation, installation or upgrading of existing heating system, or a new energy efficient boiler.

Our easy-to-use Grant Quiz can quickly tell you if you’re likely to qualify for funding. From there, Eco Warmth can take care of the entire process from application to installation!
