Free Cavity Wall Insulation and Loft Insulation Government Grants are still available in Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Merthyr Tydfil and throughout South Wales.

These Government Grants are not “Means Tested” – and are available to EVERYONE, and are not repayable.

IT’S ALL CHANGE AGAIN ! 

The Cavity Wall Insulation and Loft Insulation Grant Scheme has changed. In some ways it is an improvement over it’s predecessor, but other aspects have got worse

CAVITY WALL INSULATION

Cavity Wall Insulation is by far the biggest winner under the new scheme. In most cases it is free (including for those who are NOT on benefits) The quality control aspects have improved massively.  Click here to find out more about the free Government Grants for Cavity Wall Insulation.

Loft Insulation is by far the biggest loser under this scheme, especially for those with no insulation in their loft. If you have between 50mm ( 2 inches) and 100mm (4 inches) you will probably be a little better off.

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, which 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 it didn’t happen, and the Coalition Government funded it.

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

The Green Deal Finance Company has now been purchased ( January 2017) by a consortium. It should be offering Green Deal Loans through the scheme in the near future so we will keep you updated.
