There are many ways in which properties can be made more energy efficient, with loft insulation being one of the most effective ways in which to do so. Furthermore, in a bid to tackle fuel poverty in the UK, the UK government also provide grants for insulation to people on benefits throughout the country. These grants are typically used to ensure the loft of the property retains more heat and that the building envelop (the separation between the interior and exterior environments) is as secure as possible.
Loft insulation grants for people on benefits as well as others are funding provided directly by the government, which is then used to invest in the insulation and energy efficiency of your property. There are government grants available for more than loft insulation, including Green Home Grants and others which allow you to benefit from double glazing and a more efficient boiler.
As part of the UK Government’s drive to reach a carbon neutral position by 2050, the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak has announced funding for homes, to get the whole UK more energy efficient. Therefore, there are limited vouchers available to allow you and your property to benefit from these grants.
This is suitable for properties which have what is known as a ‘cavity wall,’ or a wall with a hollow, empty space in between and interior and exterior loft walls of the property. The main purpose of these walls is to keep the interior wall dry and separate from the elements. These walls were utilised throughout the 1920s and 30s, during the construction of properties and thus, many modern-day properties are eligible for cavity wall insulation whereby the void is filled with insulation.
Many homes and properties will qualify for free loft insulation grants from the UK government. This includes houses and properties on benefits who can receive the benefits of the government’s insulation schemes free of charge. These grants are also available to both houses and flats, although the processes of installation will differ.
Park homes can also qualify for these grants and those who live in shared ownership properties too, can apply for a loft insulation grant.
In short, yes. Regardless of your financial position and your household income, you can apply for a loft insulation grant in the UK and receive the finding needed to make your property more energy efficient and more comfortable to live in. additionally, if you own your home, you could see the value of the property itself increase as a direct result of better insulation, making it a better prospect to any potential buyers down the line.
If you are a homeowner and anyone in your household is on benefits (as list above), you qualify!
