Free cavity wall and loft insulation*

NEW GRANT AVAILABLE – Free cavity wall and loft insulation*

Grants are now available for loft and cavity wall insulation! If your loft has no insulation or it hasn’t been topped up in several years, Gloucestershire Warm and Well may be able to top it up for free and if you have a property built after 1920, you could have cavity walls and these can also be insulated for free using a grant. The grant is not means tested, you no longer need to be in receipt of a qualifying benefit or over 70 to get the work done for free!

If you have solid walls, there are also grants available for internal and external wall insulation. The level of grant funding is dependent on your circumstances, the size of the property and the main source of heating within the home. There are currently grants up to £14,995 so there has never been a better time to take advantage of the offer.

The Warm and Well scheme was set up to provide free, independent energy efficient advice and to help people access the grants they are entitled to. Since 2001 the scheme has helped 34,000 householders stay warm and well in their homes. The 7 Councils in Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire work the Domestic & General Insulation Limited who will visit your home to complete a free, no obligation survey and then again at a later date to install the insulation. The Energy Saving Trust estimates a yearly saving of around £175 after loft insulation is installed and up to £135 after cavity wall insulation is installed (based on 3 bed semi-detached house). The grants will not be available indefinitely so please act now.
