If your home was built between 1924-1982 there is a good chance it has cavities which haven’t been filled with insulation. This could be causing your home to be in the lower EPC ratings and costing you a lot of money on heating costs. The great news is that you may be eligible for a free Cavity Wall Insulation Grant to pay for the installation of this energy efficient measure.
Energy companies are able to offer this to you as part of the ECO scheme and LA Flex funding and it’s all thanks to the government’s commitment to improving UK homes, reducing carbon emissions and making them more energy efficient.
The benefit of cavity wall insulation is that it reduces heating bills, makes your property more comfortable, softens noise and lowers your CO2 footprint, making the planet a greener place to live. But the initial expense can be high, which is where these grants come in handy.
In most cases, the cavity wall insulation grant will cover the full cost of the install, which can save you thousands. This is because CIGA registered installers will carry out a survey and then insulate your property according to stringent technical standards. They will also apply to CIGA for a Guarantee on your behalf and will supply you with this when the work is complete.
The process is simple and there is no income test, which means more people are likely to qualify for a free insulation grant than previously.
