Home Energy Grants Made Available To You.
Here at My Home Energy Grant we want to help you access a wide range of Energy Efficiency Grants - made available by the Government and energy companies - to improve the energy efficiency of your home and lower your bills.
More than 50% of UK households will qualify for a grant to install home energy efficiency products. There are some restrictions, but if you get any sort of social benefit it’s likely that you’ll qualify.
We specialise in installing:
- Electric storage heaters
- Loft insulation
- Cavity wall insulation
- Room-in-roof insulation
- Solid wall insulation
- Under-floor insulation
The grants we offer for heating and insulation usually cover the entire cost of these types of home improvement. We will then work with our fully accredited network of installers to ensure the work is completed quickly and to the highest standards.
Why not use our simple check below to see if you qualify? It takes less than 2 minutes and could set you on your way to a grant to replace an old, inefficient boiler or upgrade your insulation which could save you hundreds of pounds per year!
Below are some of the products we can offer grants for.
If your heating system is broken, old or inefficient we can provide a grant to replace it. Whether you need replacement electric storage heaters or a free boiler grant, we could help.
If your house was built after 1930 it will have cavities within the walls which could be losing 35% of your home’s heat. Speak to us to see how we can help.
If you have a habitable room in your roof space, you need to ensure it’s well insulated. Find out how we could help.
Properties over 100 years-old (and / or those classed as non-traditional construction) can be insulated either on the inside or outside. We can assess what you need and how to provide it.
Some lofts have less than 100mm of insulation which could be leaving homeowners with higher energy bills. Void spaces under the ground floor could also benefit from extra insulation. Get in touch with us to see how we can help.
Frequently Asked Questions
This will very much depend on the type of insulation you are having installed. For example:
Cavity Wall Insulation is Thermabead injected into the walls.
Internal Wall Insulation and External Wall Insulation both have rigid insulated boards bonded or screwed to the walls. Internal will be plastered and external will be rendered to complete the work.
Loft Insulation will be laid between the rafters and then another layer will be laid at 90° to a minimum of 270mm.
With Flat Roof Insulation, there are two approaches: warm flat roofing works by placing the insulation material on top of the roof, while cold flat roofing involves placing insulation between the joists for internal.
Room In Roof insulation consists of all elements being fitted with insulated boards between rafters and underneath existing plasterboard walls. This will then be plastered to create an aesthetic finish.
Different forms of insulation have different guarantee lengths.
This list should help give you an idea:
Loft Insulation = 2 Years
Flat Room insulation – internal = 2years
Flat Roof insulation – external = 25 years
Room in Roof = 25 years
Cavity Wall Insulation = 25 years
Internal & External Wall Insulation = 25 years
Ventilation helps your home rid itself of moisture, smoke, cooking odours, and indoor pollutants. Structural ventilation controls heat levels in the attic, moderates dampness in the crawlspace and basement, and keeps moisture out of uninsulated walls. It is also good to have an airflow that is uninterrupted, as anything blocking the air flow in your home can cause damage to both your home and your health. One of the reasons ventilation is so important is because it controls how much moisture is lingering in your home.
Without a ventilation system in place, you have no control of the air flow in a building.
If your insulation is government funded, it is a requirement that we install sufficient ventilation to meet the appropriate standards.
Here at My Home Energy Grant we use highly accredited subcontractors to do all installations on our behalf.
Yes, any added insulation to a property will improve an EPC rating.
This will depend on what kind of insulation you are having installed.
For Under Floor Insulation and Internal Wall Insulation, clearing of most belongings would be expected. Large Items can possibly be worked around.
For Loft Insulation, all items will need to be removed from the loft to allow our installers enough room to work.
We are accredited to install Knauf Earthwool Loft Roll (BSen 13162).
If you wish to store items in your loft, we can provide an insulated raised platform specifically for this. We will provide you with a quote for this addition.
If your insulation in your loft is clean and dry, we would just top up to the minimum 270mm depth. If this is not the case, we would remove all old insulation and install new.
With Cavity Wall Insulation (CWI), you should find that the house holds its temperature for longer.
Therefore, the time between heating cycles may be longer which should result in a more even temperature throughout the house and / or a reduced fuel bill.
No, it shouldn’t be necessary for a family to vacate the property for when Internal Wall Insulation is being fitted. Wherever possible our installers will keep all disruption down to minimum.
There are a few ways you could find out if you already have Cavity Wall Insulation.
Firstly, you could check your Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
Secondly, inspecting your walls could help you find a defined pattern of filled holes which would be a tell-tale sign.
Also, a surveyor will drill your walls to inspect which would confirm either way.
