Under the government-backed scheme, ECO scheme free boiler and insulation grants are available to those who receive certain means-tested benefits. It aims to reduce fuel poverty amongst low-income households by ensuring that heat is generated as efficiently as possible and is prevented from escaping from the home. So if your boiler is over 7 years old you could be eligible.
Approximately 40% of heat is lost through the external walls of your property. Solid-walled homes are especially vulnerable to this due to their design and construction methods. Properties with solid wall construction include those built using brick, stone, steel frame or concrete construction methods. If your home was built before 1920, it likely has solid walls. Internal wall insulation insulates your solid-walled home from within by adding a layer of insulated plasterboard to your existing wall.
The Government’s ECO scheme free boiler aims to improve the energy efficiency of households, reduce home heating bills, and minimize a household’s carbon footprint. As part of this scheme, you could get your internal wall insulation fully funded using the home insulation grant. The scheme is free to apply to and applications are open to everyone, claiming benefits or otherwise.
Prevent draughts – Prevent heat loss
Under floor insulation can, however, be installed and usually consists in a layer of solid insulation which is placed directly on the floor. Underfloor insulation will, however, prevent heat loss. By preventing this heat loss with underfloor insulation, the energy bill saves at least 10 percent. Under floor insulation can also be combined with reflective foil that helps to create an insulated barrier from the outside air.
Insulating your floor can make a big difference while cutting energy costs and saving you money. This is done through adding an insulating material beneath the floorboards and between joists reducing the heat that escapes through the floor and into the ground. Approximately 15% of heat is lost from a house in this way. Insulation can also act to prevent draughts from coming up through the floorboards.
Heating grants are part of the government-backed Energy Companies Obligation ECO scheme free boiler and are available towards the cost of a Replacement Boiler or full Central Heating system.
