IT’S ALL CHANGE AGAIN! 

The Government Home Insulation Grant Scheme has changed again (17/9/18). In some ways it is an improvement over the old scheme, but other aspects have got a whole lot worse.

The Standard Home Insulation Grant that everyone qualified for (even Richard Branson) has been withdrawn.

The Enhanced Home Insulation Grant – which you have to qualify for, has been broadened.

Many people who did not qualify for this grant in the past will now qualify.

CAVITY WALL INSULATION

Cavity Wall Insulation is FREE in 99% of the cases for those who qualify for a grant. The quality control aspects have improved massively. 

We would of course be pleased to give a quote for those who do not qualify for a grant.

Loft Insulation is not free in all cases, and will depend on a number of factors.

We would of course be pleased to give a quote for those who do not qualify for a grant.

A NEW TYPE OF GRANT – FLEXIBLE FUNDING

Flexible Funding will be available for the following measures

  • Free Central Heating Systems
  • Free Boiler Replacements
  • External Wall Insulation
  • Internal Wall Insulation
  • Free Cavity Wall Insulation
  • “Room in the Roof” insulation
  • Loft Insulation

ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATES (EPC’s)

We carryout domestic EPC’s throughout the CF and NP postcodes at competitive prices. So if you are selling your home or would like to have a home insulation assessment completed, please drop us a line or give us a call on one of the numbers below.

HOME ENERGY EFFICIENCY ASSESSMENTS

Have a Home Energy Efficiency Assessment carried out on your property (including an Energy Performance Certificate), by a qualified Domestic Energy Assessor, Green Deal Advisor and registered CAS surveyor.

Basically, this is an EPC, but with an assessment/ survey of the property’s existing insulation etc.

A Domestic Energy Assessor has to carryout a non-intrusive survey to produce an EPC. They are not allowed to drill a wall to check for cavity wall insulation, or rummage around a loft (in fact many don’t even look in the loft), or crawl into the loft voids around rooms in the roof.

With your permission, in the case of cavity walls, we would drill a 12mm hole in the wall(s) and insert a boroscope with a camera to assess suitability for insulation or existing insulation. A full survey of the loft space would be carried out, together with a survey of any rooms in the roof.

We would also look at the feasibility of renewable technologies.

We produce a report of our findings together with various solutions, and details of any funding that may be available, e.g. the renewable heating incentive which could pay you back over 7 years more than the cost of the installation.

The cost for this is additional insulation assessment is just £25 on top of the EPC fee.

THE GREEN DEAL – AN UPDATE!

The Green Deal was actually a finance mechanism, whereby energy efficiency improvements could be made to your home, through a loan. The loan was then repaid, with interest, through your electricity bill.

The idea was that Energy companies, DIY companies and the like, would invest money into the “Green Deal Finance Company”. But this did not happen, and the Coalition Government funded it.

When the Conservatives came to power in May 2015, they said they would not invest any more money into the scheme. So, the Green Deal still existed, but in practice was unable to operate.

The Green Deal Finance Company was purchased in January 2017 by a private consortium. It should be offering Green Deal Loans through the scheme in the near future. We will keep you updated.
