Wrap up your home this winter
Make your home warmer and your energy bills cheaper with a Green Homes Grant.
Homeowners in England, including landlords, can get up to £5,000 to pay part of the cost of energy saving measures like insulation. Low income households can get 100% of the costs of work covered up to £10,000.
Make sure you’re one of the 600,000 households who could save up to £600 a year on energy bills by applying today. Installing energy efficient home improvements also cuts emissions, which is better for the environment.
If you’re a tradesperson, make sure you’re eligible to carry out work under the scheme, which will support thousands of green jobs.
What improvements can I get?
Vouchers must be used to install at least one primary home insulation or low carbon heating measure.
If you choose to install at least one of the primary measures, you can use your voucher to help cover the cost of secondary measures.
The grant for the secondary measure is capped at the value of the grant provided for the primary measures. For example, if you receive a £400 voucher for a primary measure such as a cavity wall insulation, you will be able to receive a maximum of £400 for a secondary measure such as an energy efficient replacement door.
The voucher must be used to install at least 1 primary measure. This can be an insulation measure and/or a low carbon heating measure.
- solid wall
- under floor
- cavity wall
- flat or pitched roof
- room in roof
- insulating a park home
Low carbon heat measures:
- air source, ground source or hybrid heat pump
- solar thermal
- biomass boilers
If you install at least 1 primary measure, your voucher can be used to help cover the cost of any of the following secondary measures:
- draught proofing
- double/triple glazing (where replacing single glazed windows)
- secondary glazing (in addition to single glazing)
- external energy efficient doors (replacing single glazed or solid doors installed before 2002)
- heating controls
- hot water tank thermostats and insulation
