The Government will give homeowners in England vouchers towards the cost of energy efficient improvements, which should cover much – and in some cases all – of the cost towards the following

 

Loft Insulation

Cavity Wall

Internal Wall

Floor Insulation

Heating controls

Air source pumps

Ground source pumps

Doors and windows

What are the qualifying requirements?

To qualify for any financial support, you’ll need to be installing at least one of the following “primary” improvements:

  • Insulation, including solid wall, cavity wall, under-floor, loft, or roof insulation.
  • Low carbon heating, such as air source or ground source heat pumps, or solar thermal systems.

If you already have these measures installed in your home, you can use the vouchers to install “top ups” – for example, additional loft insulation so it reaches the recommended level – but not to replace what you already have.

⚠️ COVID-19 UPDATE: We’re still open and are continuing to carry out Essential & Emergency Repairs & Installations in accordance with the current government guidelines on social distancing and self-isolation.

The Government also adds that if you’re installing low carbon heating, you’ll also need to have adequate insulation in your home, this can be installed at the same time as the heating.

Also if, and only if, you’re installing at least one of the improvements above, you’ll be able to use the vouchers to install the following “secondary” measures:

  • Draught proofing
  • Double or triple glazing, or secondary glazing, but only if you currently have single glazing, it won’t cover replacement double glazing.
  • Energy efficient doors, where you’re replacing doors installed before 2002.
  • Heating controls and insulation, including appliance thermostats, hot water tank thermostats, hot water tank insulation, smart heating controls, zone controls, delayed start thermostat and thermostatic radiator valves.

Adding solar panels to your house can help cut your energy costs whilst also helping to ease climate change. Unfortunately, Solar PV is are not covered by the Green Homes Grant but solar thermal panels (for solar water heating) is part of the primary measures that are covered by this scheme. Solar thermal panels make it possible to use the energy of the sun for water heating purposes

A further benefit of solar thermal panels is that owners can get financially rewarded through the Renewable Heat Incentive just for heating their own water.

Solar Thermal Panels are something that Real Home Improvements can provide for you, from application to installation we will complete the work to highest standards.
