A Free Cavity Walls Insulation grant will cover the entire cost of Cavity Wall Insulation professionally installed. If you receive a qualifying benefit. Or privately rented and occupied at the time of the survey. ECO, or the Energy Companies Obligation, was originally a component of the Government’s Green Deal Energy Efficiency program. This grant funding is part of the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) scheme. Grants are provided by the main energy suppliers.
Cavity walls insulation is one of the best ways that you can reduce your heating bills at a time. When energy costs are on the rise. A property with un-insulated cavity walls can lose up to 35% of its heat due to heat escaping through them. Households save between £145 and £200 annually by insulating their cavity walls.
Many brick-built properties constructed between 1924 and 1982 are likely to have a cavity. Either between bricks or between bricks and blocks, that has not been fill with insulation at the time of construction. After 1982, the building regulations changed. And it became a requirement for cavity insulation to be install at the time of building. We could help with a grant in most areas.
These materials can reduce the amount of heat escaping from the walls by up to 35%. Insulating your cavity walls can save you up to £145 in energy bills over a year. And reduce carbon emissions by up to 610kg a year.
Recent research by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) revealed. That only 58% of all properties capable of benefiting from Cavity Wall Insulation had it installed. Your property is one of the remaining 42% that needs to insulated.
The first thing to check before applying for a Grant is whether or not your home has cavity walls. Most brick properties built in the 20th century are likely to have a cavity in them. Generally, if your property built before 1924. Then it is likely that it had solid walls, such as those described below:
You can also tell if your property has a cavity by the walls’ thickness. Which should be at least 250mm (10 inches) thick. Generally, properties built after 1982 already have Cavity Wall Insulation. Because building regulations changed to ensure that it installed as part of the construction process. A Grant could not apply. If your property already has been Cavity Wall Insulation because it cannot be topped up.
